Do you require or want 'home alone' time? What do you do when you get it?

My husband just went out of town for the day and I am home alone. I am liking it!! This wasn't a requirement previously, we usually spend most of our time together our of mutual desire to and wanting to share our common activities. I am now thinking of once a month per person being a home alone day. I spent the whole time in sweats, pigging out on food he hates, watching chick flicks and catching up on those tiny chores he doesn't understand the need for - organizing toy box, porn, cleaning kitchen drawers, etc. Anyone else?

I used to be this way in previous relationships. I actually required a lot of "alone time" but since I've met my current man, even though we've been together a good while now every moment alone we feel miserable. But, part of the reason I don't need the alone time is that we have the same interests and we are able to be in the same room and since we watch the same shows and since we can listen to music on our computers or he can play his video games while I am online, we do have time where we do things in the same room but dont do the same thing...so it kinda just works out.

In the past, things didn't always work out that way and some time apart was a good thing

Usually I like to have an hour or a few to myself if I've had a bad day or just woke up not in the mood for people, but for the most part, I like being around other people. Even if we don't do anything but sit on the couch and watch TV or they read and I play on my laptop.

My girl, however, likes to have her alone time as long as she can get it. Her mom lives with her and her nephew every other weekend and one of her brothers lives with her every now and then, and she works full-time in retail so she doesn't get much time to herself between the family in the house and having to take me to and from work and other places.

I usually prefer to spend most of my time with my husband, but there are times where he'll want to get up and go out and be productive and I don't really feel like it, so I'll sit inside and read or watch TV/a movie. This happens every now and then.

I have to have alone time for my sanity and so I can get work done. For the past decade we have been separated a lot during the week because of work schedules. So I am used to having my mornings and afternoons to work and do things I need to do. I swear it has made for a pretty strong relationship. We cherish the time we are all together as a family during the week.
That's not to say we don't miss each other when we are away. We do. I think it makes the reunion every week even better.

I definitely need a fair amount of alone time. I like to play music (whereas he likes the t.v. on when he's home) while I cook and clean; read, journal, write letters, or watch a movie that he wouldn't normally like.

I love alone time. Before we had kids I used to average about two nights/days alone a month while my husband travelled. I really miss it.

That said, about a week alone is the most I could handle.

We both have what we call "me time." It is essential to my mental health to be absolutely ALONE for a few hours, guaranteed, with no interruptions, no coming home early, no calls, etc. etc. ad nauseum. She gets the same thing when she wants it.

I just can't handle being around people 24-7. It drives me crazy. I just need some time to reset. I don't do anything special. I just enjoy being by myself. It seriously helps us keep the peace.

I am not married and do not live with anyone so I get all the alone time I need really...But I do love my time alone.
I'll watch shows and movies...listen to music and dance around the house naked..maybe clean the house!!! YaY...sometimes I'll write stuff...like poetry.
I like to experiment in the kitchen and make some crazy stuff...I kinda think my house is haunted so I'll play ghost hunter..L0L
Yeah...pretty boring stuff

If I ever live with a partner I'd like a room of my own where I can go and just do my own thing. Mostly it will be for grooming. I prefer to groom alone - I don't need an audience!

Besides that, I have been single for so long I'll need my own space - especially at first. Smother me and I'll flee.

I'm like Shellz- I've been single so long that needing my own space is mandatory! I don't need an audience in the bathroom either! I get anxious if I'm crowded and smothered.

I like having alone time. Just being able to lounge around, do what I want in the house, away from everyone. Sadly, I don't get any alone time any more.

I have at least seven hours home alone time every weekday, when my husband heads off to work, and my son goes to school.

I don't require alone time, but I do really enjoy it.
Sometimes the alone time kind of worries me. But I do enjoy a little bit of Kayla-time sometimes. It's nice.
