which side of the bed!?

Thu Oct 18, 2012 11:23 am

i cant believe that I am posting such a thing!
Just wanted to know if any of your ladies out there had a problem with choosing which side of the bed to sleep on? :D
i got married last week and DH and I havent lived together for over three years. I always choose the left side (maybe coz im left handed?) and i seriously find it hard sleeping if im on the right side. We are currently sleeping on a single bed (long story, bed hopefully coming soon!) and he has been cheekily moving over MY side!!! How do I get him to move onto his side?!! :lol:

I am on the right side of the bed, (left side if you face bed from foot of bed)

I am sure once you get a larger bed DH will stay on his side, or maybe he just wants to be close ;)

I sleep closest to the window, furthest from the door. That can necessitate a change when we move. Its never cause problems.

Doesn't matter if it's left or right, I always sleep on the side furthest away from where the velociraptors are most likely to attack. DH sleeps in the path of said oncoming velociraptors. :lol:

Maybe he does want to be close, but in a single bed he has no choice!!!

I'll just work my magic and make him go to the side! hehhehe

At the moment I'm sleeping on the right hand side (looking from the bottom of the bed) - but I always sleep furthest away from the door.

I have always slept on the side furthest from the door. Apparently a lot of couples do that instinctively - presumably because of above velociraptors issue. Although any velociraptor worth its salt would go for me anyway as I am far more delicious and chubby.

I love this and it's the way I think too .. except I think the highest likelihood of attack is through the windows, so I sleep closest to the door and FH sleeps next to the window no matter where we are or which way the bed faces!

I had to giggle reading this thread... My DH always sleeps closest to the door wherever we sleep, even in hotels.
Now I know why! :lol:

I always sleep on the right side and FH on the left, cos that's how we did it before we started dating. I like to switch things up a bit when we stay in hotels though :wink:

You girls have been watching too much Jurassic Park. They got the Velociraptor way way wrong. 1. They were only ever about 50cm tall 2. They had feathers and 3. They've been extint for about 70 million years :lol:

But scientific inaccuracies aside... I always sleep closet to the window as I love being able to lie in bed and look out at the garden.


No such thing as too much Jurassic Park. Best movie ever.

Plus primes us for velociraptor attacks... just in case :D

There's also the zombies to think about! DH and I insist that our first home must have a garage accessible from inside the house so we can have a quick getaway if ever the zombies attack. We also have a scheme for converting our roof-space into a secure zombie-hideaway but that's another story... :lol:

To be serious though, an ex-partner had a real thing about always being the one to sleep nearest the door, sitting with his back to the wall in a restaurant or facing the exit, and refusing to hold hands with me using his dominant right hand (to keep it free in case of attacks). Not sure whether to put it down to the caveman instinct, or just excessive paranoia. Leaning towards excessive paranoia and a severe case of uber-masculinity.

Dont forget Pananormal Activity too!! thanks to that movie, I cant even have a part of my body out of the bed!!!

I have a paranoid image that if I continue to sleep on the left side, there will be a massive earthquake (probable because I do live in Japan) and the wall will collapse and Ill fall out of my apartment building! So, im stuck between earthquakes, velociraptors, ninjas, and zombies.. whats a girl to do??!! :D :D :D

We do that too! Even when we are staying with family/friends or at a hotel. Very weird!

I'm with gdemon, I always sleep closest to the main vulnerable point of entry (door usually) for protective purposes. It may seem a bit cold and calculating but if anyone breaks in I want the first thing they see to be me hitting them in the face with something.
