    I sleep on the right side, so he’s the closest to the door. I, too, feel more secure that way!!

    I sleep on the right side if you are facing it cuz its closest to the wall.  Its been that way for a while, every once in a while we change it up

    Interesting question. I sleep on the left! No idea why but that’s what my parents did too.

    Make a poll!

    I have always slept on the right side of the bed (when facing it) he likes being closer to the door – I just don’t really care!

    I sleep on the right. It started like that so he was closer to the door (security for me) but when I moved the furniture around it put me closer to the door but I like my right side so much now we just never switched back!

    Oh, maybe I’m mixed up. I’m on the right when facing the bed, but the left when laying down.

    We’re not married yet, but when I stayed with him, the first night (in my jetlagged rudeness), I looked at him and more or less growled, “Which side do I get?” and he put me next to the wall. And there I stayed. 🙂

    I think its pretty common for the guy to sleep closest to the door for “security” and my parents do that too…. but honestly we have an alarm and i’m not that scared lol. i sleep on the left side (which is closest to the door) because the bathroom door is also there and i almost always have to pee at night so i wouldn’t want to have to walk all the way around the bed (hey— its a long ways at 4am!) heh.

    i’m on the left side when laying down (right when facing the bed). Its close to the wall and the window… ( i like to be “cold” when i go to bed so i want to be closest to a nice breeze.. i know weird.)

    i sleep on the right side when facing the bed like most of the bees!

    and for the same reasons, he’s closer to the alarm/door for security reasons

    i sleep on the right side too, but i’m closer to the door!  But in our first place together I was on the right and he was closer to the door, I guess we just have our sides, for no particular reason!

    I sleep on the right side too, and am closer to the door as well.  🙂 I have no idea why we set it up that way!

    That’s funny, I didn’t know the security reason was so common – we’re the same way. Except I’m on the left, next to the window, which I suppose if someone REALLY wanted to put up a ladder and climb in, they could.
