Read on to discover what spooning, back to back, and other couples’ sleeping positions reveal about your relationship status.
Sleeping position 1: Spooning
Spooning is one of the most classic couples’ sleeping positions and most couples start off this way. The little spoon enjoys feelings of comfort and protection, which makes sense since their partner fully surrounds them.
Big spoons are likely more giving and prefer protecting their partner. Most couples who regularly spoon either recently started dating or are inseparable.
Sleeping position 2: Back to back
Back-to-back with contact can tell a variety of things about your relationship. If your bottoms touch, it shows you want to stay connected while remaining comfortable.
If you’ve recently got in an argument, you may choose the back to back position to avoid full contact. However, the small touch reveals you still care for each other.
Sleeping position 3: Front to front
Front-to-front with contact is essentially the “baby” version of intertwined, which we will address later.
This sleeping position involves both partner’s heads stationed at the same level and arms slightly hugging your partner. A couple who sleeps front-to-front could indicate their like-mindedness and positive chemistry.
Sleeping position 4: Sweetheart cradle
Ever wonder what the position was called for resting your head on your partner’s chest? It’s called sweetheart cradle.
This intimate position reveals a couple’s strong sense of trust and teamwork. Many new couples prefer this position, which explains why romance is at this position’s core.
Sleeping position 5: Leg hug
Sometimes being completely intertwined with our partner can get hot. This leads many couples to sleeping in the leg hug position.
The leg hug position indicated a partner’s sexual or emotional craving for the other. Additionally, interlocked legs promote a sense of one, or a unit.
Sleeping position 6: Intertwined
The mother of all couples’ sleeping positions: intertwined.
Fully intertwining yourself with your partner is one of the most romantic couples’ sleeping positions because it’s often a transitory pose for sex. A couple that regularly intertwines themselves demonstrates their dependence on one another.
Sleeping Position 7: Both on stomach
If both you and your partner are sleeping on your stomach with no contact, it could indicate there is a lack of sexual trust.
Sometimes realizing this can encourage lovers to discuss any hidden issues. While this is challenging for many people, having a serious conversation about any fears or anxieties could save your relationship from diminishing.
Couple’s sleeping positions and their hidden meanings can uncover a plethora truths about your relationship.
