Do you wear your shoulder handbag on your left or right shoulder?  (Or switch between left and right?)
Are you left-handed, right-handed, or ambidextrous?

Do you also wear your purse crossbody style when it has the appropriate strap?

As being right-handed, it makes sense for me to wear it from my left shoulder more often than my right shoulder so I can reach in for things without sitting down.

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Right shoulder, right handed.

Crossbody in cities for safety...buuut...I  don't carry one anymore. I usually just jam my jacket pockets with the essentials. Money, cards, keys, phone.

I do like the crossbody strap and it does provide greater security than a bag on your shoulder or in your hand.

Depending on what I am we wearing and where I am. I usually wear my bag over my left shoulder, but some clothes it seems to slip off all the time so then I wear it crossed. I tend to hold my bag so if I am in a busy place or need two hands, then again I will wear crossed. Left side as I am right handed and can reach or keys or purse (UK)

Generally, crossbody, right shoulder - left side, or left side for short distances as it has a tendency to slip down.

I for sure wore a purse crossbody when walking in a city with many passerby's this past week.  Safety is always important.  I did wear alternately have it hanging on the left and right side.

One of the things I found out when I had right rotator cuff surgery is that these work injuries occur on the opposite of your dominate handedness.

I’m mostly ambidextrous. I write, play racquet sports, brush teeth, fork, left handed. I throw, play golf, cut meat, play guitar right handed. Sleep on my right side when not on my back. Mouse right handed. Trackball left handed. I play darts either but prefer left handed. Scissors I have adapted to a right hand world, lol, I guess in a lot of subtle ways. I hold a book when reading in my left hand. Prefer jewelry bracelets on my left wrist.

I never realized how right shouldered I was until surgery. Can’t use a purse or backpack on my left shoulder.

I guess we all have a preferred side for everything. Was very interesting to realize this about myself.

For a large tote I just carry it in my hand, or crossbody if the tote has heavy things in it.
Could almost use a backpack if there is much stuff in the tote.  Just depends on what I am doing, as backpacks and totes each have their place.

When I carry a bag, it is usually on the left side. My left arm secures the bag and the strap is either on my left or right shoulder, depending on the style of the bag. I keep my right had free to do what a girl needs to do. I am right handed.

I am not out to my family, they make me use what is the equivalent of a tool bag that you find in a hardware store. The handle on it is so short that I only have two choices, in my hand or on my arm. It spends more time on my arm. They think it causes them less embarrassment, but it makes my mannerisms more feminine in how I carry the bag. When I did use bags with longer straps, I wear it on my right shoulder when I needed to. Maybe when I get the chance again, i experiement with left shoulder since I am right handed.
