My DH and I sleep in a king size bed - yet he clings to the edge sometimes bumping his head on the night stand. (We've been married for 3 years, together 6. He had been in a 25 year marriage before his ex wife left him for another man.) Last night I jokingly asked him if he's always slept like that. And he just said "no." I just looked at him and said "Is it me? Am I unpleasant to sleep with?" Then he got irritated that I took it negatively and didn't want to talk about it!
I feel like I sleep alone every night because we do not touch at all during sleep. If I reach over and put an arm around him in the night, he's still as a stone so I turn back over. I often feel lonely when we sleep but I've tried to get used to it. So it hurt my feelings that he said he hasn't always been this way (must have been cuddly with his ex wife) but gets mad that I suggest it has to do with ME. What am I to think?

LOL! We've been married 20 years & I don't like being touched or breathed on when I sleep. But my DH encroaches on my side every night, breathes & farts in my face. I still love him to pieces but I wish he'd sleep clinging to the edge! I think I need my own room! LOL!
