When sleeping with a partner, do you prefer sleeping on the right or left side of the bed?

For those of you that are married or in relationships, or, perhaps have a special someone you occasionally spend the night with (hey, could be a sister or brother!), do you both have a side of the bed you typically sleep on?

Keep in mind, when we’re asking this question we’re asking it as if you were looking straight on at the bed from the foot of it, NOT as if you were in the bed.

So, is your side the right side? The left side? Tell us in the poll below. Thanks!

I have always been the right side sleeper. This actually created a situation be we decided to buy a diesel pusher. The head of the bed needed to be on the passenger’s side, so my taller husband wouldn’t have to be stepping up on the engine area and so that I could step up and get into bed easier. This has also made it easier to manage the placement of my CPAP which is tucked into the back wardrobe next to the head of the bed.

I am a male and I sleep on the side closest to the door

I don’t particularly care, but the wife always picks the side closest to the bathroom.

I sleep on the left side but I would prefer the right side because it is closer to the bathroom – but alas – I get extra exercise and travel time to the bathroom; the price of keeping peace!

It depends on which side is closest to the restroom 🙄😉

From Day 1 of us being a Couple, we both already had our natural bed side as an instant match! Facing the bed from the foot end, husband is always on the right and I’m always on the left. We never discussed it. Going on 35 years of happy and comfortable slumber.

I sleep on which ever side is closest to the door, just in case a bad dude comes in. This makes my wife feel more secure no change in 53 years

I sleep on the right side and wife sleeps in the middle most of the time. I get what’s left over.

assuming you’re standing at the foot of the bed facing the head i have always slept on the left. when we were first married i gave my wife her choice of which side. 52-years later we still sleep on the same sides.

I sleep on the left because, as a wise man once told me, the woman is always right.

DW likes to be near the WC. Where ever we are.

It is ALWAYS the right side. No matter where we are. Even camping and sleeping in a tent!

The side nearest the toilet. 😀

This question confused me. Why? Because which side is right and which is left depends upon if you’re standing at the foot looking at it or laying on it. I premised my response on the first scenario.

Hi, Roy. In the description above the poll itself, it says, “Keep in mind, when we’re asking this question we’re asking it as if you were looking straight on at the bed from the foot of it, NOT as if you were in the bed.” Sorry you missed that part. Have a great day. 🙂 –Diane

Younger, I’d say same side. Older, either side. ❤️

Been sleeping on the right side all of our 56 yrs of marriage. My wife gets what’s left on the left side after our 2 dogs get in bed, she is a good dog mom!!

After 44 years of marriage I still sleep on the side of the bed that my wife chooses for me.

Have always slept on the left side of the bed. Not sure why but that’s the way it is.

Interesting statistic: 78% male to 22% female respondents.

Guess more guys read RVTravel Daily Tips than women do. THAT is a real WOWER since I am a female and thoroughly enjoy this newsletter (as well as a couple of others)!

Me too Lindalee. My DH doesn’t do as much reading as I do. I have passed along interesting articles that I think he would like to read, but I do all of the surveys
