What Your Cuddling Style Reveals About Your Relationship

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
