Which side do you sleep on? My mother slept on the left and my dad was on the right. So I followed suit, I am on the left and my husband is on the right. What is your preference? Did you end up sleeping on the side you wanted to? Or did your partner choose before you?

  • I have always slept on the left side of the bed is closer to the bedroom door so in case of emergency I am the first one up

  • I used to sleep on the left, but when we moved into our current house, the window arrangements etc were different, and I swapped to the right. My husband doesn’t seem to care.

  • I sleep on the right and my hubby on the left and like you – it’s the same as my parents. Before we married we were both renting and when we moved in together, he moved into the house I was renting so I got choice of side as it’s where we always slept when he came over

  • I sleep on the left, but frankly i really don’t care.

  • I found the answers interesting reading.

  • I sleep on the left side of the bed and have my husband to the right. I sleep on my right side with my back towards the window and my face towards the door, which I think is pleasant. Somehow I don’t want to sleep with my back towards the door. Is anybody with me in that ?

  • I sleep on the right, furthest from the door.

  • I’ve moved around quite a bit with my hubby. It wasn’t so much sides that were chosen as which side of the bed was closest to the door. I sleep on the far side of the door, which has changed each time we’ve moved.

  • this is such a cute question =)

    ive always slept where its nearer the toilet. haha. I get up several times a night so it depends. i sleep on a different side when its a hotel too depending which side is closer to the toilet.

  • I say that I sleep on the left but my husband would say I sleep on all sides of the bed LOL

  • lol great question! i am on the left lol! a lot of people wake up on the “right” side of the bed lol.

  • I’m on the right hand side. I believe it’s traditional for the male to sleep on the side closest to the door – something to do with protecting the female from any intruders.

  • I always sleep on the right side.

  • some interesting answers ha ha ha :)

  • Even when my husband is away I still sleep on the left
