Luckily all of us are good sleepers - but me especially. (Dude will move to the couch if MrS is asleep ahead of him and snoring, and MrS will move to the couch if Lotus is over and he feels there is not enough room in the bed - but I ALWAYS sleep in the bed, alone or with company.)

However, when the boys were going to be gone for a week...I was anticipating getting at least a little lonely (while I often fall asleep solo, usually there is at least one person in bed when I wake up, or at least coffee and smooches waiting for me...) They each left me the T-shirts they were wearing before they left (smell has a strong effect on me!). I loved being able to cuddle "them" when I was missing them!
Me: poly bi female, in an "open-but-not-looking" V-plus with -
MrS: hetero polyflexible male, live-in husband (24+ yrs)
Dude: hetero poly male, live-in boyfriend (5+ yrs) and MrS's BFF
SLeW: platonic girlfriend and BFF
Lotus: "it's complicated"
+ "others" = FBs, FWBs, lover-friends, platonic G/BFs, boytoys, etc.
