Regardless of how long you have been with your significant other, most relationships require small sacrifices along the way to keep your partner happy. However, most Americans say that giving up their preferred side of the bed is a sacrifice they aren’t willing to make. In fact, 40% of Americans have a side preference, with the right side being more popular than the left.
If you’re able to move past side preferences and compromise with your partner, the positions each of you sleeps in also speak volumes about your relationship. Sleepers who remain close to their partner during the night tend to feel trust, protection and comfort in their relationship. In contrast, those that take up the most space while sleeping may also be the more selfish one in their relationship.
We’ve compiled a list of some of the most popular sleeping positions to better explain what your snoozing position says about your relationship. Let’s see how you and your partner stack up!
