According to body language expert Tonya Reiman, your go-to cuddle position reveals a lot about your relationship. Here’s what she says the three most popular snuggling positions mean:
- Lying face to face with your partner. This is a sign of a very intimate relationship. This position allows you to hold eye contact and share a moment of trust and vulnerability with your partner. In long-term couples, it shows they’re still very much in love; in new couples it shows they’re really into each other, according to Reitman.
- Spooning with your partner. Reitman says this cuddle position shows feelings of strong communication, affection and satisfaction. It’s more common in long-term relationships, but with new couples it shows they’re comfortable with each other already.
- Resting your head on your partner's chest. "Lying head to chest is a display of dominance and submission in the same way it is a demonstration of trust, affection and love," Reiman says. A woman will rest her head on the chest of someone she trusts, and it gives her partner the chance to wrap their arm around her, making her feel protected.
