Sleeping is important. An average human spends a third of their life sleeping. We also know that we can survive for more days without eating than sleeping. It’s most essential part of our life. Where ever we are, whatever we do sleeping is the part. Some people sleep early, some sleep late, some sleep very late but finally everyone sleeps. If you are married or in a relationship, couple sleeping position is a good to know thig for you.
People observe non-verbal communications as well as body language of people around us very keenly, and learn a lot of things through it about the person without explicitly saying so.
Sleeping position is one such moment when we unintentionally display our feeling, sometimes we ourselves are unaware about these feelings when we are awake. There is nothing good or bad about it. Its good to know what’s your couple sleeping position.
But when I researched deeper about sleeping positions and what it means, I realized one thing. Bollywood fooled us here too. People sleeping with back towards each other, does not mean having a strained or bad relationship rather it’s the opposite. Will come to that in this post.
Let’s Find out how do you sleep. What’s your couple sleeping position.
There are many interesting positions like how people sleep like a log, star, shooting star, spoon and many ways of sleeping have fancy names too. For example, Liberty lovers, moon landing, back kissers etc.
One partner cuddling the other one from behind or we can also put it this way that one partner caves into another.
The partner who is on outer side is called Big spoon, and the one who cases in is called Small spoon.
People who are new in a relationship generally sleep in this position. So, if you sleep like this, you are in a new relationship or in the phase of rekindling love.
This can be further classified as Chasing Spoon and Loose spoon.
Chasing in sleep is common, irrespective of your starting sleep position. The chaser wants more attention. Wants more physical intimacy and importance in the relationship. Where as the person being chased, either liked being pursued or needs a little space in the relationship. It can also mean that the person being chased feels, he can’t look up to the relationship to meet his or her needs, it can be physical, emotional or financial as well.
This shows you are settling in your relationship. You might start your sleep with a tight spoon, but as the night passes you loosen up as you are getting more certain of you partner as well as the relationship.
As people have a long-term relationship, they prefer comfortable sleep over spooning.
Touching Each Other:
When two people are sleeping on a bed, first thing is the bed needs to be comfortable and big enough for both of them. If one of the partners is taking 3/4th of the bed leaving a little space for the other, simply means that thy need a bigger bed and need to sit and talk about equality in their relationship.
Facing each other
Couple sleeping face to face with each otherand if they are touching may be hands or legs. The meaning of this couple sleeping position is that, they both are on the same page in life. In terms of their expectations from life as well as each other. They are having a healthy relationship.
Back to back
Couple sleeping back to back, and touching at hips are called moon landers. This position means, they both respect and love each other, want to maintain physical intimacy however they command and respect their private space too. They have balance of closeness as well as independence.
Leg Hug, needs a special mention when we are talking about couple sleeping positions, as this is a solid couple. Their lives are intertwined. They both are one, in their decisions as well as dreams. They exist as a single unit. Couples might start their sleep in this position and then change to a more comfortable position later during the night.
Not Touching each other:
People who prefer their own space and do not touch or spoon or tangle their partners, are not unromantic or detached. Please note this. They do not need that constant assurance about their relationship. They are pretty confident and sure about it.
Face to Face
Couple sleeping face to face and not touching each other during sleep, need they have expectations from the relationship. They look at each other as they need something more, and it’s not physical.
Back to Back
Couples sleeping back to back and not touching. This couple has love, security, confidence and yet they are independent. They have built a strong foundation for the relationship and they can sleep comfortably as they have everything to be content.
Sleeping on back
Neither looking at each other not back to back. Rather both the partners sleeping on their back. This is one couple sleeping position, that needs attention. If you or any one you know as a couple sleeps like this, then they need to talk. As they are sleeping, they are unaware about their posture. Such position means they both are unsure about the relationship. It might be due to their past or current stress in their live. This posture means angst and fear in relationship. It also represents anxiety and lack of sexual trust on each other.
