Not sure what happened

As creepy as it sounds, it is not uncommon for a spirit to climb into bed with you. I've had many people tell me about similar experiences. I personally have not had that happen but I have had spirits grab my ankles in my sleep and whisper in my ear.
And I think there is probably something to you feeling an energetic or atmospheric change in the house. I am visited by ghosts often and I get a weird feeling like something is off in the room followed by a feeling that someone unseen is watching me.
I am guessing that you may be understandably scared about going to bed tonight. Spirits are attracted to empaths so there isn't much you can do to stop that. You can ask them to leave and some will obey and others won't. I recommend going to a local crystal store and buying some protection stones. I keep a small cloth bag of protection stones under my pillow and next to my nightstand. They seem to work a little like mosquito repellant does for bugs and keeps spirits away from your immediate area when sleeping. And it has really helped keep these entities from bothering me while I sleep.
I'd be interested in hearing what others may be able to contribute to this analysis. I would say that since you were not particularly scared that it is probably a non-threatening situation. I've had loud booms that sound like a sonic boom or a big crash in my house. They wake me up and then immediately I have something paranormal happen like you did. I think a sound loud enough to wake you from your sleep is either the spirit announcing itself or maybe your angels giving you a heads up to be awake and alert.
I'm glad to hear that you have protection stones near your bed. Just remember to reenergize them every few days by bathing them in sun or salt water during the day. Otherwise they don't work as well.
As for your visitor, it sounds like you can rule out deceased boyfriends or relatives. I think spirits that are stuck between worlds are often lonely, lost, and confused. I think we empaths almost glow in the dark in their world as they seem to seek us out. I'm thinking that maybe he just wanted to be close to you for comfort. Did you by chance pick up any emotions from this spirit like sadness, loneliness etc...?
What does the smell remind you of?
For instance, when I am around people, there are certain smells that I can detect. The smells indicate whether the person is happy, fearful, agitated, and so on. Its a sixth sense expansion of the olfactory senses. There is this guardian spirit, he smells of Jasmine flowers, and he sometimes lingers outside my front door. Sometimes other people smell Jasmines too, and that creates interesting and sometimes funny conversations. I wonder what your friend smells like.
There are some spirits that hijack or piggy-back on you and follow you around. Ironically I had a psychic tell me years ago to watch out for hitch-hiking spirits that jump on my back and hang out. And then shortly after I had one attach that brought me years of darkness and depression as it just sucked the energy out of me. In my case it was bad from day one, there were no good feelings from the start. My challenge back then was that I did not know I was an empath so I didn't believe in any of this stuff and therefore was not equipped to resolve it until years later.
Having strong protection stones on you at all times can help. As will smudging around you. I also took a lot of rock salt baths as part of a protocol to get rid of my spirit attachment. I also prayed to God asking to get rid of my attachment. I think a combination of these things helped because one day I could feel it leave me and it threw a fit and literally threw a desk fan across the room. I immediately felt better as if a dark cloud had been removed from me.
I don't know if the peace you feel from him means it’s a good thing. If you aren't comfortable with being bothered day and night then I would suggest you definitely work on getting rid of him.
You said he didn't respond to your request to leave but so far has left you alone for the past day? That's a good sign that he is keeping his distance. Keep us posted as we learn more about his habits we may be able to fine tune what to suggest you do.
