What sleeping positions say about your relationship
Everybody thinks they’re a relationship expert; your mother-In-law, drunk best friend or that nutter in your local newsagents who always asks if you’re single - people like to talk about their love lives.
It seems this trend follows through to the tabloids as well with the Daily Mail posting an article about what your sleeping pattern says about you. Whilst you might think there’s important news to write about, it seems they’ve got some pretty revealing things to say when it comes to the way you sleep with your significant other.
For example, the way you sleep can reveal traits about your relationship. Here’s one for you: if you’re sleeping on the sofa and your wife has got the bed, your relationship isn’t going to well. If you’re sleeping on the sofa at your best mate’s house, then well…maybe a guest bed should be your next purchase.
But, whilst things seem to be going well through the waking hours, the way you cuddle up at night can tell the experts things about how intimate you are. If you sleep intertwined for example, you’re very, very intimate and you cannot get by without each other. There’s a good chance you’re the type of person who can’t do anything without their partner; like leave the house, or go shopping, or let you partner hang out with their best mate at the pub, or live…
If you sleep apart and face away from each other this shows you are connected and confident in your independence. This is called theLiberty position, because you know, you’re free. Likewise if you’re aspooner, you’re apparently quite protective of your lover - if you’re the bloke that is, who gets a lovely cuddle and a load of hair in his face.
There are more though - loads more. They’ve covered every way you sleep. If you sleep mirroring each other's position whilst facing each other, that’s called pillow talk, which generally develops when one person won’t stop talking before bed. Just kidding, it demonstrates a need for communication apparently - so stop being a brick wall and talk back to your significant other.
Most of the positions are about how luvvy-duvvy you are with each other. Which is nice because we all like to think we’re well in love every minute, of every day. The very idea that we’re in loads of love when we’re asleep is probably comforting for a load of people.
There are couples who sleep in zip and link beds, though and apparently they get loads more sleep.
