A goodnight’s sleep is vital to keep your mind and body active. When asleep, your subconscious takes over your body and the way you sleep. The language of a sleep-fueled body serves as an insight into what’s going on in your life. You might not be aware of it, but the way you sleep says a thousand words about you. Similarly, the way couples sleep says a lot about their relationship. Here, we have gathered information about different couple’s sleeping positions and what each of them might signify.
Spooning is one of the most common and classic positions couples sleep in. When spooning with your partner, you get a sense of protection as well as intimacy. The person in front, also known as the little spoon, rests their back or behind on their partner, and the bigger spoon (the person at the back) hugs them tightly, stirring up a great deal of protection and love. This skin-hugging position signifies physical and emotional comfort among the couple. This sleeping position is most common among younger, newer couples who are in the rage of intimacy.
The chasing spoon is another variation of spooning. Instead of hugging each other tightly, one person shifts to one corner of the bed while their partner “chases” them. If you and your partner sleep in this position, it can mean one of the two things. The partner shifting aside needs a little space from their partner when sleeping or simply wants to be chased after. Whatever the case may be, keep in mind that the “chaser” could be wanting a little more attention from their partner.
Spooning attracts partners in a new relationship. On the other hand, couples who have been together for a more extended period don’t always need constant skin-to-skin contact. They prefer loose spooning where both individuals have more space for better quality sleep. After being together for a long time, you don’t need the reassurance of constant body contact to make you feel a strong connection of trust or love. You understand that you and your partner need some space, with little contact, for a goodnight’s sleep.
