Five Reasons I Don’t Like Sleeping In Other People’s Beds

Over the years I have to come to realize I don’t like sleep overs nor do I like people sleeping over. Maybe its because since I became independent I’ve had a single bed and having an extra human in that bed is complete torture.

I’m an open, accommodating person and like having people come over and I host but please go back to your house unless its an emergency or there is a valid reason.

The one thing I cherish is peaceful sleep and always avoid sleeping in other people’s beds.

Recently a friend called me over to chill, little did I know she had no plans of driving me back home, I was unhappy the whole time and she could see it. What she did not understand was why wanted to go back home, I have no TV, no baby to nurse but I still wanted to go home. Now here are the five reasons I prefer sleeping in my bed always:

  • I struggle falling asleep in a new bed and when I do the dreams are always unpleasant.
  • I want to be comfortable, spread my arms and lift my legs.
  • Honestly I don’t like holding in fart and its a struggle when you have someone over or vice versa.
  • I talk in my sleep, every time at someone’s house I pray to God that I do not utter a word in my sleep scared to reveal information meant to be between me, myself and I.
  • Waking up to making my way home/work. I hate that, firstly I don’t wake up at the time I usually do, secondly I have to move around with toiletries and extra clothes.

Unless I really have to sleep at your house, its never an option for me. My bed is the only place I can be truly myself and its always there for me at the end of crappy day.

    Girl, the farting is nothing. Imagine trying to do your number 2 first thing in the morning at some place that’s not your house and you know there’s someone listening in and taking in your poo in a room next door. Lawwwd!

    Looking at all these answers like you people, what is personal space when you dont have res at uni and have to bunk with your homie after awhile you realise beds are overrated so is personal space its all a mind over matter issue strangers will wake up in your bed, you will wake up in strange beds and praise the lord and pass the bottle

        lol true some situations force you to share, but in the process it will remove some of your sharing anxieties, its like facing your fears after awhile they dont scare you as much conversely its like if you love a song then replay it so much that you dont like anymore lol
