What Your Sleep Position Says About Your Relationship

Body language can tell us a lot about how a person is feeling. When you sleep the position your body naturally takes can give you information about your feelings towards your partner at that time. After fighting, you might turn your back, whereas after a particularly loving day you may sleep more closely together, with limbs intertwined.   

Psychologists say that the back-to-back-touching

Couples that sleep with their backs to each other while still touching tend to have great respect for each other’s personal space. This position says they want to have their own space but still enjoy being close. These people are lively and independent but have a healthy and stable intertwined

If a couple sleeps completely intertwined with limbs together and touching, this indicates a strong passionate bond. Often this is a position adopted at the start of a relationship when physical intimacy is a high priority. Although the intertwined position often shows strong sexual desire it can also indicate problems with jealousy and possessiveness of one partner over the other.



The legs intertwined sleeping position with body separation is a sign that the partners need to take care and give their relationship more attention. The touching legs indicates passion and commitment to each other but the separate bodies shows independence which could spell emotional distance in the relationship.

Although psychologists and communications experts suggest that sleep positions can indicate a state of harmony or discord in a relationship, there are many other explanations for separate sleeping or back to back sleeping. Some people find one side more comfortable than the other, while others might like to face a window; some people may find it impossible to sleep touching another person. Whatever you sleep position, good communication is often the vital key that will bring you closer to an intertwined heart, if not intertwined limbs!
