To those of you who are sleeping with another human, what side of the bed do you sleep on?

Standing at the foot of the bed facing the headboard, what side of the bed do you sleep on?

I sleep on the left, because that's where the bedside lamp is and I need to read before I go to sleep. I would prefer to sleep on the right, though, because my right nostril is damaged and I can't breathe out of it.

Interesting to note that in my (very long) life, whilst considering this question, the side changes with Partners,curiously . My GF would have to answer, "left when going to bed" and diagonally when waking up" :idunno:

And a Kindle?

Whatever side is next to the window. I used to be near the bedside table because I need to read, but now I have an ipad and I can do without the light.

....and distinguished nothing except a single green light, minute and far away, that might have been the end of a dock.

As ordained by my wife, I sleep on whichever side is closest to the door (deriving from a vague sense of security whenever she's sleeping in a new place, and carried over to everyday life). I don't seem to care which side I'm on, as long as I've got a bedside table and a light, although electronic readers have made the light less important in recent years.

No matter what side I'm on, I wake up, and always have, curled up at the very edge. Not sure what's up with that, but at least I've only fallen off once that I can recall in my adult life.

Outside. In the doghouse.
Wrong side. At least that's where I wake up. I'm not a morning person and the Pixie lets me know exactly what she thinks of multiple alarms every morning.

Actually, I don't think you can call it a 'side' so much as a strip. Sometimes it's a thin strip on the right, sometimes left. Seldom more than a third.

Not sure what you mean by the left. I chose the left, meaning, when you're lying on your back, the left side.

Edit: And I'm eerily similar to Jaboney with the multiple alarm clocks and always getting up on the wrong side.

When Kal El is visiting, I usually sleep on the floor with him. We tussle a bit about who's going to sleep in the right. It's all slumber-party fun until someone loses an eye. And when I prod him with a toe in the morning to fetch me a fresh beer, It's all whiny shit about "You don't respect me".

Don't even get me started on why I started locking that door to the guest bedroom!
