We saw this tweet on the internet and it made us pause and take stock of life.
We were just chatting in work and apparently it’s weird that Amy and I don’t sleep on the same side of the bed every night. Some nights I like to sleep by the window, some nights the door. It’s not really that unusual, is it?

And then this follow up tweet
Feel like I need to point out the following:
1. First one in chooses
2. We’ve never disagreed over it
3. We move pillows and books as we move
4. We don’t change every single night
5. Neither of us are aliens

We thought every couple had designated sides of the bed. You pick a side because of comfort or whether you like sleeping closer to the door or the window. Then once you pick a side you put all your stuff on your side. Things like your glasses, your book, your phone charger, etc…..
But, the tweet has been generating conversation about how people sleep when they are in a relationship. And now with over 2,000 comments we see there are other people out there who change sides of the bed
It all boils down to preferencebut for someone who never even had this idea cross their mind I am still trying to wrap my head around people who do this. Do a lot of people switch sides? Is this normal? Please help.
How do you and your partner sleep at night?
