You might not have known this but your sleeping position can actually serve as a really good gauge as to where your relationship stands.
When you are in a romantic relationship with someone, you are always going to want to make sure that you pay attention to all the littlest details. You want to make it a point that nothing gets by you in the relationship.
You don’t want to be taking your relationship for granted in any capacity. You want to be giving the relationship your full attention. You want to make sure that you are giving the entirety of yourself to this relationship.
And that means really taking notice of all the little things. Remember that the devil is in the details.
If you are really going to stay on top of things in the relationship, you need to really be paying attention to even the most mundane things.
Did you even know that the manner in which you and your partner sleep in bed at night can tell a lot about the dynamics of your relationship? Well, it does.
And if you want some signs into whether you are doing good or bad in the relationship, you might want to take a look into your sleeping positions and patterns.
1. The Cliff Hanger
With the cliffhanger, you are both on the opposite sides of the bed. It’s as if you’re both hanging on the edge of the cliff with the way that you’re straddling the edges of your bed.
You are creating a lot of space and distance between the two of you while you sleep. And that could be a sign that there is a certain sense of emotional distance between the two of you in the relationship.
Make sure that you are able to close that off as you move forward in the relationship.
2. The Crab
The crab position is when the two of you engage in two very different positions that just don’t make any symmetric sense in the relationship.
When this is the position you are in while you sleep, then that could indicate a lack of intimacy between the two of you. It’s as if one of you is trying to get away from the other. And that can never be a good sign in any kind of relationship at all.
The shingles position is one of the sweeter and more intimate sleeping positions that a couple could have in bed. It’s when one person rests their head on the other person’s shoulder.
What this means is that the person whose head is resting is someone who is dependent and reliant on the other partner. And the one whose shoulder is being used as a headrest is a listener and nurturer.
4. Pillow Talk
This is a very simple position and it’s actually one that a lot of couples engage in. It’s merely when two people sleep in a position that enables them to be facing one another without necessarily touching.
This means that the level of communication in the relationship is very strong and that they have no problems with just opening up to one another. You should be proud of your communication game if this is how you sleep with your partner.
This is a rather cliché sleeping position and it’s usually one that new and young couples tend to partake in. It’s the classic “Hollywood” style of a sleeping position that you would see couples in movies be locked in.
It’s when the man is usually spread out on his back as he lets his woman rest on his chest as they drift off into a deep slumber with one another.
6. The Lover’s Knot
The Lover’s Knot is clearly a position that indicates intimacy and closeness in the relationship. It’s when two people lock their legs and intertwine them in some kind of knot for a considerable amount of time until both people fall asleep.
This is also a sign of very high sexual activity between two people.
7. Spoon (Woman over Man)
When the man is living on the inside of a spoon position, it means that he seeks a lot of love, care, patience, and understanding from his woman. He might feel a little broken and damaged. He might need a little healing.
8. Spoon (Man over Woman)
When the man is on the outside of a spoon position, it means that he is being possessive, territorial, protective, and nurturing of his woman. He wants to make sure that no harm is going to come of her or the relationship as a whole.
This is when couples sleep facing away from one another with both of their backs touching. This means that both people in the relationship feel comfortable, relaxed, and trusting.
