What do your sleeping habits say about your relationship?

Recent psychological research conducted at the Edinburgh International Science Festival has uncovered an interesting fact: any change in the relationship between a couple in love immediately affects the attitudes the partners adopt while sleeping. The most important thing here isn’t the position they snuggle up in before bedtime or which they adopt right after falling asleep. The position they sleep in all night and wake up in the morning is the only one that really matters.

Inspired by the research of Professor Richard Wiseman (University of Hertfordshire) and the work of psychologist Corin Sweet, we at Bright Side decided to create this fun guide to sleeping positions for couples who we hope will will help you understand your relationship better.

position “honeymoon hug”
This situation tends to occur if the couple has just started dating or has had to spend time away from each other.

This profession is also very popular with married couples if their family life is still imbued with passion, tenderness and love.

position “dialogue”
Both partners sleep on their backs. Usually, one person lies on their back while the other rests their head on their partner’s shoulder, making them the most dependent person. This couple has great chemistry, but sometimes one of them finds it a little uncomfortable to have to consider the other’s point of view (and in this case the situation).

                     The position of the "cradle of the beloved"

This position is very similar to the previous one, although more intimate. This type is very common among couples who are not afraid to constantly show their feelings; They are very nice and care about each other very much. The situation usually means that the man is more bossy and bossy in the relationship.

“I cherish you” attitude
These couples are usually very happy and really enjoy their relationships. The position reflects mutual respect for personal space. Touching their back is another proof that it is very important for them to feel the presence of their partner around the corner.

position of “freedom”
This situation may show that the couple went to bed right after a big fight. However, there is an alternative explanation: it is possible that both partners are very independent and self-centered and need a lot of personal space.

The position of the “king of the bed”
What do your sleeping habits say about your relationship?
Partners who tend to sprawl all over the bed are usually the ones who feel the need to assert themselves rather than show their feelings to their partner. Their behavior in relationships is often very selfish, which is reflected in their sleep patterns.


“spoons” position
What do your sleeping habits say about your relationship?
This position indicates harmonious and emotional relationships at the same time. This position is very popular during the first years of marriage. The posterior partner usually plays a dominant role in such relationships. The other partner, on the contrary, enjoys a feeling of protection.

“Loose spoons” position
What do your sleeping habits say about your relationship?
Couples choose the very comfortable “spoon” position but give themselves more freedom. This is one of the most complex situations with at least two possible explanations:

The situation reflects a passionless relationship – at least one of the partners feels that way. He no longer feels the need for any physical contact or is simply unhappy with his partner.
In the second case, the partner who turns his back provokes the other in an expression of feelings and is ready to attract more attention.
leg hug position
What do your sleeping habits say about your relationship?
Partners prefer not to sleep in close contact with each other, but casually touch their feet. Usually, couples who sleep like this share family harmony and mutual trust. They give each other freedom while keeping a little “bridge” to touch and smell each other even at night.
