Spending time alone and all that jazz

One thing that has really been a problem since my husband (Mr. F) and I have been living together (four years in March), I don't have much alone time.

Alone time is something I really cherish.

We've talked about it, but it's difficult for my husband to let me have time alone at the house. Understandably, we both want to be together when not working.

Mr. F, on the other hand, has too much alone time. Which makes this dilemma even more difficult to solve.

We'll figure it out somehow.

I understand this one totally. My mother used to tell me that when I was a little kid, when I'd get home from school I didn't want a snack or anything like that, but I'd go into my room and shut the door and then come out about a half an hour later wanting a snack etc. I have never figured out a way to explain this to anyone that matters without it ticking them off or hurting their feelings. I guess I just don't know how to express the fact that it's me, not them, that it's my need to be alone, and has nothing to do with the way that I feel about them.
I still feel this way now, to the extreme that I've been know to take my phone off the hook or let the machine answer the phone for a while when I do get home.

It wasn't until I dated a guy who needed a tremendous amount of time alone (he could live alone on a private island and never miss anyone), I realized not to take this need to be alone personally.

Gosh, if only this could be taught in school or at home.

We're all so different, yet we all need time alone. Some less than others.
