    I'm a single guy so this doesn't apply to me really, but my dog does jump in bed and sleep at my feet lol...

    Do you and your significant other relate to one or more of these?...


    Cliffhanger

    Both partners sleep on opposite sides of the bed, most often facing the wall. At least one of them is right on the edge of the bed with at least one body part hanging over the side. If this only happens once in a while, it simply indicates a need for a good night's sleep. On the other hand, if this is a permanent position, there is definitely something not quite right with the relationship. Time for a little heart to heart talk!

    The Crab (left side of image)

    This is possible in a variety of forms but always without body contact. People who lie like this in bed need space and freedom. Their partners, however, prefer to cuddle. But as the saying goes, opposites attract.

    The Roof

    Both partners lie on their backs while SHE cuddles into his armpit. Most often, this only takes place when falling asleep. It's a clear indication of male dominance and feminine devotion.

    Pillow Talk

    Both partners lie face to face but without any real body contact. This often happens in the early stages of a relationship! These couples have a lot to say to one another and like to look into each other's eyes.

    Hollywood

    This is how movie stars sleep! HE lies on his back and SHE nestles into him like a purring kitten. Her head rests on his chest and their legs are entwined. Really only applies to the "honeymoon phase" of a relationship because sleeping like this is pretty uncomfortable and not a long-term option.

    The Love Knot

    Both partners lie facing each other while their legs form a sailor's knot for at least 10 minutes. Once both partners have reached deep sleep, the knot tends to come undone. This position indicates a relationship between equals and latent erotic tension.

    Classic Spoon (woman on the inside)

    In this position, SHE can let him wrap HIMSELF around her with her need for cuddling completely fulfilled. HE, on the other hand, can show his protective instincts by keeping her warm and snug.

    Reverse Spoon (with the man inside)

    Here HE can show his softer side and let himself be protected and cared for. SHE accepts the role reversal without question and shows that she is a modern woman.

    Back to Back

    The classic position for falling asleep when a couple still enjoys contact and closeness but also appreciates having their own space. It's the perfect compromise: comfort and intimacy at the same time!

    The Freedom Lovers

    This position is a lot like the Cliffhanger but close enough so that both partners are still within touching distance. These partners need a good deal of space to ensure a good night's sleep and in all probability they will live a long and happy life together.

    Lol :D


    I'm single.
    I'd tend to do the classic spoon style with my pillow tho, find it very comfortable that way.
