    Am I Weird ?

    Since I was a kid I have always slept with my bedroom door shut....likewise my bedroom window.... It's hard to say, even in hot weather - hey, we DO occasionally get hot weather in the UK! - I have to; I get disturbed easily with sounds so I like complete silence.... Having...

    I'm afraid of sleeping with my bedroom door open

    because I feel like someone or something is going to walk by my room at night or watch me sleep

    I have always slept with my doors to my bedroom

    closed. I don't feel comfortable sleeping in an open room alone, or with my back towards the door if my door isn't locked. I haven't had any bad experiences it just makes me uncomfortable. Also I like to sleep less than fully dressed, and I would prefer the people I live with...

    I can't sleep in light,

    I can't sleep near people, I can't sleep with obnoxious noise. Therefore I close the door.

    I don't sleep with the door open,

    I like it closed. I feel like I need privacy when I sleep. It's much more comfortable closed.

    I Can'T Stand It To Be Open...

    Maybe it's because I like my privacy, or I subconsciously feel safer with my door closed, but I can't stand it to be open, especially if I'm trying to sleep. I honestly don't remember the last time I tried to sleep with it open. Even if it's stuffy, I won't open it, unless I'm...

    It makes me anxious to have the door open at

    night, and then I can't sleep. So it has to be shut, my windows too!

    I must have my door closed at all times.

    I just really love my privacy. Whether it's day or night, it has to be closed, especially at night, I can't sleep with my door open.

    I always have my bedroom door closed.

    People find it really annoying, but I want some privacy. I just don't feel comfortable with my door open.

    I have to. My bed is set up

    so that the light that would shine in from the door will hit my face directly. Plus I don't want people to walk by and look into my room. It's my room. My place of zen :P

    Not Just My Bedroom

    Any room I'm in the door has to be shut. I like to shut out the world and be on my own. My bedroom is my own space and I don't like anyone to be able to enter it or invade it by looking into the room

    Everyday and night, I like my privacy

    so I keep my door closed when I sleep. And of course for the fact that I live with several obnoxious people who don't care about their unnecessary loud noise when I'm sleeping.

    It's my first line of defense

    before my enemies dare enter my quarters. Once they do then glorious battle will take place!! That and I'm a frequent sleep walker and need to keep myself in a confined space. Because I have left my house while sleep walking before.

    Am I the only one who feels way to exposed with

    the door open? No? Excellent. I get paranoid with my door open. I watch way too much paranormal shows or my own good. Sometimes I would feel as if some is standing their watching me *shivers*. Not cool at all. With my door closed I feel safe and content.

    Always

    I can't sleep if my door is open. I feel vulnerable. I don't usually close it all the way, though. I push it shut without latching it. Plus, I can hear too much outside of my room if it is open. Between my family, the dogs, and other noises in the house, it disrupts me.

    I just feel safer with it closed!

    I used to hate it closed; I felt like I had more access to my parents. But now, I feel like something could crawl or walk into my room. I also have a cat that could possibly walk or who knows do to me! Can anybody relate? ๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ถ

    I always sleep with be bedroom doors closed.

    I have a double French door design. I used to sleep with my bedroom door open when I was younger and had small children. My kids are all older now and they do not need that attention. Besides I have male guests over from time to time and I do not want us to be disturbed...

    I used to always sleep with it cracked open

    but now I sleep with the door closed and locked. It's not like I have to have it that way but I prefer it because it guarantees my total privacy.

    I'm always thinking someone

    or something is watching me when the door is left open. Even if it's just slightly cracked. It creeps me out and I can never sleep in peace so my door always has to remain closed!

    Shut my door, locked with high tech security

    system, placed a cupboard there and made sure that I have my weapons near me. Then I feel really safe and private from sudden barge of an individual waking me up from sleep

    I feel so exposed with my door open.

    Like what if a serial killer got into my house? Or an ever better thought, what if a ghost dragged me by the ankle across my bedroom and into the hallway? Ok I was kidding with the last part but I still feel slightly paranoid.

    Exit Light, Enter Night

    When I eventually get to bed for the night, I close my bedroom door. I cannot sleep when there is a noise or when there is a light shining. There is almost always someone who is walking down the passage. Either that (on a night I sleep early, which is not often), or my mother is...

    Well I used to only do this

    because I played on my phone for hours before sleep. So my parents think I'm asleep. Before though, I would always creep myself out looking at the dark hallway, imagining someone staring right back at me. It makes me feel safer and protected, I guess.
