The Way Partners Sleep Can Say a Lot About Their Relationship
All people sleep. But it turns out that the way we sleep says a lot about us as individuals. For example, if we are one of the many who sleep on the stomach, it is said that it means we have a playful and open personality.
On the other hand, if we sleep on the back, it is said that it means we are the silent, but strong type.
Interesting, right? Well just imagine what happens when there are 2 different sleeping styles in the same bed? Yes, we are talking about couples. This can be fascinating.
Why? You should know that when we sleep, our subconscious minds simply take over. Due to this fact, the body language we use while we sleep with our significant other might be a way to gauge what is really going on in the relationship.
Surely there are exceptions to this rule, in case you are asleep kicker, you cannot blame your significant other for sleeping far away from you.
