A bigger bed means a bad relationship?

06 October 2014, 17:41 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Believe it or not, the bigger the bed, the more the distance in a relationship. Not only that, but how you and your ‘significant’ other sleep in bed can tell how good or bad your relationship is.

The smaller the bed. The better the relationship, the larger the bed… Explains why some couples send the other to the couch, the bed is too small and they cannot just bare their invasion on their space.

Some of us may disagree and say how it is about our comfort which I can relate to because I really do value my sleep as do most people, but there is a study that shows that if you share a bed with your partner and you sleep more than an inch apart, then you are not happy in that relationship. Here are a few that cover the status of your relationship at one point in the beginning to what it may be now.

The Honey –moon position

It is whereby, you are both in each other’s arms as you sleep. The position implies a newness to the relationship and you are still getting to know each other.  You are both getting to understand the other person and so, you may not want to reveal your true habits yet.  It also demonstrates a loving independence between the two of you as you are still secure in the relationship. You slept that way as you told stories through the night. Personally, I would not survive this position up until morning. It not only restricts blood flow since your arms are around your new love but, it is uncomfortable as you try to find breathing space and ensure you do not end up stiff.

Normally, it is the male that takes on the traditional role of showing his dominant and protective role in the relationship. The woman may also cuddle the guy to show her caring and nurturing nature towards the man in the relationship. It also shoes the giver in the relationship. As long as you are spooning, you are both still secure in the relationship.

Back to back

Reflects intimacy and security in the relationship. Being back to back but an intimate part touching such as legs or bottom or your backs shows that you are both comfortable giving each other space. Also referred to as the Zen style, closeness has already been established and you are no longer exploring each other. You are both re-establishing independence without any fear.

But, when you are back to back with a lot of space and not touching, it shows a growing lack of closeness in the relationship and not caring. There may be resentment or anger with the other party. At the end of the day, you and your partner may choose the best way to sleep, for comfort or love? Depends on how open the both of you are  with each other, some of these may not even relate to you at all because some of us just want to go to bed and not cuddle.
