The way you share the bed with your partner when you are in a relationship can tell a lot about you. It is very important which is your sleeping behavior in a relationship and this may reveal a lot about you and your partner. Next time you get into bed, take a close look at your sleeping positions — you might just notice something you didn’t expect. Here are some common sleeping styles and their significance:
When a couple sleeps in this position it means that both partners face back to back with one or the other dangling an arm or a leg off the side of the bed. This is a sign that the dangling partner needs getting more or better sleep, but it could also mean that there is a growing distance in the relationship.
- The Crab
Sleep like this means that one person enjoys a little freedom with their side of the bed while the other enjoys a little closeness.
- The Roof
This style describes the classic lover’s embrace as they fall asleep; usually the women will nestle their head into the armpit of their partner. This position signifies devotion between the partners.
- Pillow Talk
This is the perfect way to fall asleep for couples who enjoy staring deeply into their lover’s eyes. It is generally more common in newer relationships.
As the name of this sleeping style suggests, it is inspired from romantic movies. The woman prefers to rest across the man’s muscular chest with his arm around her. It may look good, but it isn’t comfortable at all. Within an hour of falling asleep, the man wakes up with a dead arm!
- The Love Knot
This style is named “The Love Knot” because both partner’s limbs are tangled together, generally to untangle as they fall deeper into sleep. This can suggest that there is a relationship between equals and it means that there is a lot of erotic tension between the partners.
- Classic Spoon (woman on the inside)
In this position the dominant partner wraps themselves around the other like a protective and warm cocoon. It is a very comforting sensation for both of the partners.
- Reverse Spoon (with the man inside)
In this position the “smaller” partner wraps themselves around the other in a reverse of the average spooning. It is comfortable like this, too.
- Back to Back
When sleeping like this, the partners will touch some parts of their bodies, but both have their own space, signifying an ability to give each other space while still remaining connected.
- The Freedom Lovers
This sleeping style is preferred when both partners need their own space to sprawl out and roll around. You can reach back and touch your partner in a moment’s notice but you’ve got your own side all to yourself otherwise. This signifies that you have a happy relationship.
