Of course, there are always exceptions. Because your subconscious mind controls the way you sleep with your partner, sleep body language can be an amazingly accurate way to assess what’s going on in your relationship.
SLEEPING positions and what we wear to bed can reveal a lot more than just our habits – they can hint at what kind of person we are during daylight hours, the state of our relationship and our health.
#1 The Cliffhanger Position
Both sleep on the edge of the bed, not facing each other. When it’s occasional, it’s just because they need a good night’s sleep. However, if it happens all the time, there are some issues between them.
The man sleeps on his back and the woman on his chest, with their legs entwined. This couple is comfortable and complete.
#3 Pillow Talk
Partners lie facing each other, quite closely. This is common at the beginning of a relationship, when a couple wants a lot of eye contact but are still getting to know each other.
#4 The Spoon
A classical position, in which the man wraps his arms around the woman. This means he is protective of her, and that they are very comfortable together.
#5 Back To Back
The couple is still in contact, because they are in love but they respect each other’s space.
#6 Reverse Spoon
Sometimes a man needs to be held too. This means that they are both protective of each other.
#7 The Love Knot
It’s when partners lie together with their legs forming a knot. Both partners are equal, and they both need attention.
Bed expert Steve Pickering, MD of family-run firm Sussex Beds, said: “Many couples are probably not aware of how much their sleeping position reveals about their relationship – and the tips and tricks they can employ to help get a good night’s shuteye if their partner is keeping them awake.
