If there’s a sacred little place we fully dedicate to ourselves in the house, it must be our side of the bed. The contents of it speak more than thousands of words, and I wouldn’t be surprised if an AI algorithm would create spot-on human profiles based on how one’s bedside looks. After all, it’s where the good, the bad, and the ugly bits from our daily lives come to rest.
And one Twitter user, @hannystyles69, took it a step further by taking a picture of not one, but two bedsides. One, it’s her orderly and aesthetically pleasing little corner accompanied by a hemp hand creme and a nice read for evenings, and the other is her boyfriend’s bedside.
People on Twitter needed no further explanation, since the side-by-side comparison was profoundly telling. The post went viral with 647.3K likes and 40.5K retweets and the new post trend was born. “My side of the bed vs my bf’s side of the bed” not only reflects the stark difference between men and women, but it also personifies the ensued hilarity we share in this world.
From makeshift toothbrush chargers to Himalayan salt lamps, no one dares to criticize your holy bedtime setup. Except, of course, your other half.

The thread’s author told us that the idea for the thread came as she was setting up her things on her nightstand after she had just moved in. “I walked over and realized what my boyfriend’s side of the bed looked like,” hannystyles69 said. “I think it’s funny how I like to have so many unnecessary items to make me feel happy and he just needed those three simple things,” she added.

Turns out, hannystyles69 had no idea the thread was going to go this viral, “but after I took the pictures, I showed my boyfriend and we both laughed about it for a long time so I decided to tweet it.”
When asked whether you can tell how a person is based on their bedside table, the thread’s author assured us that she absolutely doesn’t think so. “My boyfriend and I have very similar personalities, just with very different items we sleep next to.”
And everyone is finding the photos totally hilarious
