    I sleep on the right side and always have when sharing a bed.

    I switch back and forth but prefer the left side.  Actually it really depends on the set up of the room if I’m traveling!

    I sleep on the left, but its mostly because the right side is closer to the door, and it makes me feel safe 🙂

    I voted that I sleep on the right if you’re looking at our bed standing at the foot-board. But honestly we only get to sleep together on weekends because I work thirds so usually I’m in the middle! ha!

    But when we first started living together I slept on the left. But I have this bad habit of turning off the alarm and not knowing it while sleeping and Fiance was late on more than one occasion because of me. After that, he banned me to the right side of the bed.

    I sleep on the right.  I don’t really care one way or the other, but my husband prefers the left side.  Now I can’t imagine sleeping any other way.

    um… you need another option called other. I tend to get very hot when I sleep and prefer to be next to the window.  In our old apt. it was the left side but when we moved, the window was on the right side.  FI wasn’t too happy about switching sides and it took a few weeks to adjust but he’s happier when I’m not tossing and turning all night and waking him up.

    I sleep on the left side, if standing at the foot of the bed. My Fiance sleeps on the right because it’s closest to the door, and he says if anyone ever came in, they’d have to go through him to get to me. Honestly, they’d never make it. LOL.

    Are you describing the side when laying down or when looking at the bed from the footboard?

    I’m left side laying down / right side when looking from the footboard.

    ETA: This will likely change when we move.  I get whatever side is closest to the window in the room as Darling Husband wants to be as far from the window as possible.

    I always sleep on the side of the bed closest to the door… which makes no sense really since Darling Husband is always getting up before I do.

    If you’re looking at the footboard, I sleep on the left side, always.

    I usually sleep on the right if standing at the foot of our bed. Sometimes we switch but not very often.

    @Mrs.tobe:I have also made Fiance late for this very reason. Oops!

    I am not sure if this describes standing at the foot of the bed and looking at it?

    Then I would be on the right, if I am in bed, that is the left.

    ETA:  I see your edit, got it!  🙂

    Before I met my husband, I always slept on the right, but since we started sleeping in the same bed, I had to switch to the left because we both prefer to sleep on our right sides and if we switched we would be facing each other.  That wouldn’t work because he has a bit of restless leg syndrome and would be kicking me all night otherwise:)

    Also, he has REALLY bad breath at night and I have a super-sensitive sense of smell, so I couldn’t bear to have him breathing in my face. That said, I sleep better with him than any other man I have every shared a bed with.  Even better than alone and I never thought I would say that:)

    Typically I sleep on the left.  Closest to the door… and furthest from the window!  I like to have that beeline for the bathroom and he runs warmer then me so having the window closer to him is a good thing.  😀
