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. We bring to you a list of various sleeping positions for couples and what it says about their relationship.



If you and your partner sleep facing opposite directions with space in-between, it is a great thing. Couples that sleep back-to-back without touching are connected and secure in themselves. This position shows both closeness and independence in the relationship.



If you sleep back-to-back but you touch with your butts or backs, this is also a good thing. This position means both partners are relaxed and comfortable with one another. Yet this position is more common amongst newer couples, or those that have been together for under a year, rather than a more long-term duo.

3.Pillow Talk


This position shows a need for intimacy and close communication in bed.

4.Lovers’ Knot


Believe it or not, this position is a sign of a strong relationship. This position is a compromise between intimacy and independence, allowing for the best of both worlds.



This position demonstrates a dynamic in which one partner takes a protective stance over the other. It sweet, but it can also be a little saucy. It’s a very vulnerable position that’s sexual, but says, ‘I trust you.’

6.The Romantic


This sweet position is often seen in early relationships and occasionally rekindled ones. This is a very nurturing posture that creates a sense of protection. There’s a high level of trust here as this position has a strengthening sense of comradeship and protection.”

7.The Lovers


This is an extremely intimate position. It tends to happen when there is either intense emotions at play or at the start of a romantic relationship. Some couples maintain it throughout their relationship but it isn’t necessarily a good thing. The couple could be too dependent on each other to sleep apart.



If this is happening in your relationship, it’s time to have an honest conversation. One partner dominates the space, while the other takes a secondary role. You can also tell who is dominating a relationship by where their heads are when they sleep.



For couples sleeping in this position, comfort comes first. Whether you’re together or apart, the relationship just works.
