Sometimes I need "me time." Usually my "me time" is when I work out or shower or cook. My honey needs a bit more "me time" than I do. I think it's because he has more friends than I do that he spends time with, so I get some of my "me time" when he's out working on something with his buddies.

It's pretty normal. We are both fairly introverted people, and after hard and stressful days or weeks (we are both students), he needs to take more time to relax... For me, he is really the only good way I "recharge" after being around a lot of people (and I only sleep well next to him), but I know it's not a personal thing when he needs time away and I don't. It's about understanding each others needs and making sacrifices for each other. Sometimes he'll take his "me time" right away; sometimes he'll give me the time I need with him right away.

My wife and I both need - and get 'me time'. This time makes the time we are together much more enjoyable. We don't find constant contact a desirable way to live.

I do not need me time away from my husband, but holy crap do I ever need me time away from our kids. I never get tired of being around him, he makes everything better when I am angry or sad, he makes me complete, and maybe I am a little clingy, but I would be ok if I spent every minute of every day with him.

Definitely need 'me time' but it's because I'm stressed out from work, not because of my significant other.

I'm an introvert, I'm addicted to me time. But some people view my 'solo'cial as being anti-social.

I need me time when I feel overly stressed and at a breaking point. If I feel neglected, I usually need my partner to focus on me instead of whatever else he is doing.

Me time is good and necessary, but we sometimes get so busy that we crave more together time.

I like that- "solocial" That's what happens with both of us too. We both aren't fans of parties, and of course, college life- tons of parties everywhere. When we turn in early (and need to spend some time doing separate things) sometimes people think we're being offensive. Introversion isn't a bad thing! If an introvert needs time alone, it isn't anything about YOU! I wish more people understood introversion.

Yes!!! I am the type of person that has to have many irons in the fire at all times and definitely need time for myself to zone out and back off. I have a retail business, internet business, start and sell business plans/ideas, volunteer at SAFE house and the children's shelter and also am very active in the SBA and local business association. I cannot seem to be happy unless I am doing something at all times, but that does catch up to me and I need a 'time out'. Away from working and hubby. If I am with my hubby I end up talking or doing more business plans, going over the bikes and restorations, making lists of....yeah--it can be overwhelming!! I am also a low sleep person that functions best on about 4-5 hours per night...

I don't feel like I don't get enough me time. I have a good balance.

I usually need me time when I'm feeling lost in the relationship or when I am feeling dissatisfied

We don't like being away from each other. Been together, seldom apart last 39 yrs. We even worked together in same business for 20 yrs. Lately she has been visiting her mom for extended stays (2-3 days) since she can not travel as before. When she returns we usually make "Missed You Very Much Whoopee."

We live together, so we see each other A LOT!! He works from home, though, so he gets a bit more alone time than me! It's okay though, as I'm more social than he is, so I don't mind. As long as we eat dinner together I'm pretty easy going about letting him chill out, or go see his friends, and he's the same with me!

On the rare occasion I do, but having him around is a huge grounding force for me and really relaxing and helps put me at ease about 99% of the time.
