Did you know that we sleep with our partners says a lot about the state of our relationships? Yes it does!
You might feel that your romantic plans for Valentine’s Day speak volumes about your relationship, but the truth is, it could be how you share a bed with your significant other that is most revealing.
Relationship psychologist, Corinne Sweet has uncovered the eight most common positions in which couples sleep together and what they really mean. In fact, recent statistics shows that 94% of couples who are in contact with each other while they sleep are in a happy relationship.
However, if you sleep with your backs to one another and prefer your own space, it doesn’t spell trouble, and this can actually signify both closeness and independence.
So what does your sleeping position say about your relationship? Here are 8 most common sleep positions for couples:
1. Liberty: Back-to-back without touching
This position shows both closeness and independence in the relationship. Couples are both connected and secure in themselves.
2. Cherish: Back-to-back touching
Both partners are relaxed and comfortable with one another which are often common in new relationships.
3. Spooning: Front-to-back touching
This traditional position means that one partner is more protective of the other.
4. Lovers’ Knot: Face-to-face
This complex sleeping position signifies a compromise between intimacy and independence, allowing for the best of both worlds.
5. Superhero: Starfish position
One partner dominates the space, while the other takes a secondary role.
6. The Romantic: Resting head on chest
Represents vibrant, passionate or rekindled love.
7. Pillow Talk: Face-to-face without touching
This position shows a need for intimacy and close communication.
8. The Lovers: Face-to-face with legs intertwined all night
Although this position is romantic and very intimate, it shows a lack of independence from each other.
So, the next time you fall asleep with your partner, give some thought to what position you both sleep in. The way you unconsciously spend time together might be more telling than you think.
