Did you know you can tell a lot about your relationship from the way you sleep? Recent studies have shown that every couple has a unique sleeping position which may give away information about your relationship. Interested? Read on...

1) Warm Embrace

Perhaps the most typical sleeping position associated with a couple, this is simply cuddling up to your partner and staying that way for a varying period of time. For a large number of couples this will not actually transition to sleep: cuddling with their legs in a 'knot' will last around ten minutes before the two separate to then sleep, still facing each other. In a heterosexual relationship the male usually adopts the posture of 'protector', whereby the female leans into the male and is held there in a 'protective' position. This pose is a sign of intimacy within a relationship, and breaking apart after 10 minutes simply shows that you respect each other's independence. So if you find yourself adopting this position it may show that your relationship is a very strong one, and that you both desire reassurance and contact through being so close to each other as you prepare to go to sleep.

2) Spooning

Very similar to the Warm Embrace, spooning is a very common sleeping position for couples, with around 1 in 5 couples choosing to sleep in this way. Spooning involves front to back touching whilst resting, with one partner adopting the more 'protective' stance of being the 'big spoon'. Typically it doesn't matter who is in which position other than as a matter of preference, though it may indicate a slightly more protective disposition of the partner who chooses to be doing the cuddling rather than be on the receiving end. The other benefit of this position is simply practicality: it allows a couple to be intimate without being particularly difficult to maintain whilst trying to fall asleep. If you adopt this position when sleeping it simply indicates you want to be able to stay close to your partner whilst you sleep and, if you can keep it going through the night, when you wake up.
