Singles, do you feel the need to sleep next to someone?

I still sleeping with my teddy bear, but not because I'm scared to sleep alone, I just feel the strong primal need to have a male next to me while sleeping. The need to feel a strong protective arm wrapped around me.

  • I don't have it all the time, but sometimes I do, and it sure feels nice. I'm technically not single, I've got something going on with this one girl, but we still don't sleep together or anything, so yeah.

    On another note, inneedofusername, I seriously believe that you should dial back on your religious requirements. I don't want to be an asshole, I really don't. I'm just saying that you would be a lot happier if you allowed someone in your life, regardless of whether he's a virgin, or if he wants to marry you. You're a nice gal, and I bet a lot of guys would be interested in you, even if you wanted to take things slow.

    • When did I ever say that I'm religious? Assuming that most polish people are catholics is not true and many polish people would be offended by that

    • I think you said that you are, but even if you aren't, your desire to be a virgin before marriage conicides with religious traditions.

    • And I also never said that I want to be a virgin before marriage. You're mistaking me with someone else or you poorly understood why I want only a virgin guy

  • I have a pillow.

    I am a cuddler for whatever reasons. I suppose partly because I get so little affection, I have to make up for it. I think a teddy bear or something would seem silly for a guy older than 20 to have, so I have a pillow instead of stuffed animals.

  • Nah. I've been alone so long, while it's nice to sleep next to someone, I kind of like having the bed to myself.

  • All the time. It’s hard because I’ve never had a relationship and don’t know how to navigate all that. Usually I read super technical articles or books so I just fall asleep and don’t think about it. But if I’m desperate I’ll listen to the boyfriend asmr videos on YouTube. But yeah. Going to bed exhausted makes the loneliness go away.

  • My wife has night terrors so she hits me in her sleep and I can't sleep in a bed because I used to be homeless as a teen and would sleep in an abandoned theme park with wild dogs to stay warm. I'm also a light sleeper because in my country people steal your hair while you're sleeping to use for black magic.

  • I know how you feel.
    Lately, I've been feeling the same urge. Sometimes I wrap my arm around a pillow or something and pretend I'm squeezing the cutest girl. I'm just at that age where I'm interested in finding a real mate.

  • Same here, I always have that strong desire to cuddle with a woman
    Having her sweet head on my chest with me sniffing through her sweet hair and caressing her face; a desire that makes me cling to my pillow really hard and cry on it

  • Not single, but since I still live separate from my girlfriend we both have cuddle pillows because its so lonely to sleep without each other. When we can sleep together though its been amazing.

  • lol, you ever see the episode of family guy, where they talk about this sort of thing. peter and lois decide they want to get new twin beds because they think there's just not enough room in the bed anymore for the both of them. but when they try getting two twin size beds, and pushing them together, peter starts missing the idea of being able to "snuggle". guys hate using the word, or well, at least i do, but, we still love doing it, of course.

    so peter winds up asking his best friend quagmire, another guy, to, well, "sleep" with him.. and he just means of course, what you're talking about, "snuggling" with another person that you're CLOSE to. they make a joke about it saying "it's not gay to do it, right?"

    they do it for the first couple weeks or whatever it is, but then peter and lois make up and decided to go back to their original bed. you see them make up, and when peter gets out of bed with quagmire, you can literally see quagmire on peters back, suffocating, if i find the clip. ill post it

    this question made me think of that.

    but, i dk, i mean, i dk how i feel about it, personally.

    i don't sleep with anything other than my phone right now

  • I am in a relationship but I can remember feeling the most lonely during night time back when I was single. Therefore my answer is a clear yes. And this although I absolutely cannot stand cuddling while sleeping. For me its more about the pure presence of someone else next to me.

  • If you aren’t counting pets, somewhere between not all and rarely. My cat doesn’t always sleep on my bed and when he does he’s usually at the edge away from me if we are both asleep.

    I felt different the first month or two after my breakup a little over a year ago though, but that’s expected. My mind and body were still going through the initial shock of not having someone beside me.

  • It's not a need, more of a want sometimes. Most times I'm ok with sleeping alone, but some nights I really miss a warm body being next to me.

  • Well being in a relationship, I still prefer the bed to myself. It's actually the most reasons we're arguing at the moment as he sleeps better next to me, and I struggle to sleep with someone breathing on me
