8 Reasons Why You Should Date A Person Who Loves Movies

8 Reasons Why You Should Date A Person Who Loves Movies

Every interest comes with its perks. For movie lovers, their interest is in movies and the stories that are immaculately pictured through a digital lens. They love movies and can be so passionate about every film that has left an indelible mark on their memory. When you date them you have to focus on the pleasant. And yes there are many pleasant reasons for you to date a movie lover.

1. They will make every night out at the cinema count

Who doesn’t like someone who can take them to the cinema and make them feel cozy while the lights go dark? Movie lovers take you out and are informed enough about the type of movie that they will make you feel all warm and fuzzy, getting you in the perfect mood.

2. They want to become movie stars

They have become so engrossed in the actors and actresses or writers and directors that they seriously consider a career in the profession. Certainly the movie lover you date today could become a movie star tomorrow. Isn’t that cool?

3. They know how to insert charming dialogue into a conversation

Won’t you feel enthralled when someone tells you this quote, “You are more beautiful than Cinderella! You smell like pine needles, and have a face like sunshine!” (Bridesmaids, 2011) or this, “What we do in life echoes in eternity.” (Gladiator, 2000). You can learn so much from a movie lover because they have become so absorbed in the movies that they watch that certain lines become a part of their statements.

4. They spin strong narratives

They don’t get you bored with what they say. They could always talk about a movie they have seen and make you want to watch it with them. They are so good at narratives that you may just want to skip the movie and listen to them tell you all about it.

5. They are great at remembering dates

Movie lovers are so enthused with release dates and dates that make a mark on the film that they suddenly become great with remembering other dates. Ask them when was the Writers’ Strike? And they will take you back to what won the Best Picture in 2007/2008. Or when did the Titanic sink and they will roll back to 1912. So don’t expect them to forget your birthday or any major anniversary because they will look forward to it the same way they look forward to the release of a movie.

6. They will debate with you

They are great debaters. They have an opinion of how their movies should have ended and what makes a great actor or a great picture. They will make a great and informed debater when they engage in a debate with you about a movie. The way they put so much energy and knowledge in their discussions about movies can be so sexy.

7. They won’t compare you to a character in a movie

This can be controversial, but they know that there is no way who they are dating can be a Kate Dawson or a Lloyd Dober. Their sweetest expectations, memories, and moments are saved for the movies. But it is easy for them to separate reality from fiction. They want you to be you, rather than try to be a character in their favorite movie. They understand that scenes from a romantic movie can be painted with over-enthusiastic romantic epiphanies.

8. They will give you the credit you deserve

Movie lovers understand the importance of giving credit to who deserves it. They know that a movie by Steven Spielberg is unique and can be done by only him. What is portrayed by a Tom Cruise is different from what is portrayed by a Leonardo Dicaprio. Most importantly, if you are in a relationship with a movie lover, they will give you every credit you deserve.

30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

In today’s world, true peace must come from within us and our own actions. Here are 30 small things you can do on a regular basis to increase your overall sense of harmony, peace, and well-being:

1. Don’t go to every fight you’re invited to

Particularly when you’re around those who thrive on chaos, be willing to decline the invitation to join in on the drama.

2. Focus on your breath

Throughout the day, stop to take a few deep breaths. Keep stress at bay with techniques such as “square breathing.” Breathe in for four counts, hold for four counts, then out for four counts, and hold again for four counts. Repeat this cycle four times.

3. Get organized and purge old items

A cluttered space often creates a cluttered spirit. Take the time to get rid of anything you haven’t used in a year and invest in organizational systems that help you sustain a level of neatness.

4. Stop yourself from being judgmental

Whenever you are tempted to have an opinion about someone else’s life, check your intentions. Judging others creates and promotes negative energy.

5. Say ‘thank you’ early and often

Start and end each day with an attitude of gratitude. Look for opportunities in your daily routine and interactions to express appreciation.

6. Smile more

Even if you have to “fake it until you make it,” there are many scientific benefits of smiling and laughing. Also, pay attention to your facial expression when you are doing neutral activities such as driving and walking. Turn that frown upside down!

7. Don’t worry about the future

As difficult as this sounds, there is a direct connection between staying in the present and living a more peaceful life. You cannot control the future. As the old proverb goes, “Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere.” Practice gently bringing your thoughts back to the present.

8. Eat real food

The closer the food is to the state from which it came from the earth, the better you will feel in eating it. Choose foods that grew from a plant over food that was made in a plant.

9. Choose being happy over being right

Too often, we sacrifice inner peace in order to make a point. It’s rarely worth it.

10. Keep technology out of the bedroom

Many studies, such as one conducted by Brigham and Women’s Hospital, have connected blue light of electronic devices before bed to adverse sleep and overall health. To make matters worse, many people report that they cannot resist checking email and social media when their cell phone is in reach of their bed, regardless of the time.

11. Make use of filtering features on social media

You may not want to “unfriend” someone completely, however you can choose whether you want to follow their posts and/or the sources of information that they share.

12. Get comfortable with silence

When you picture someone who is the ultimate state of peace, typically they aren’t talking.

13. Listen to understand, not to respond

So often in conversations, we use our ears to give us cues about when it is our turn to say what we want to say. Practice active listening, ask questions, process, then speak.

14. Put your troubles in a bubble

Whenever you start to feel anxious, visualize the situation being wrapped in a bubble and then picture that sphere floating away.

15. Speak more slowly

Often a lack of peace manifests itself in fast or clipped speech. Take a breath, slow down, and let your thoughtful consideration drive your words.

16. Don’t procrastinate

Nothing adds stress to our lives like waiting until the last minute.

17. Buy a coloring book

Mandala coloring books for adults are becoming more popular because of their connection to creating inner peace.

18. Prioritize yourself

You are the only person who you are guaranteed to live with 24 hours a day for the rest of your life.

19. Forgive others

Holding a grudge is hurting you exponentially more than anyone else. Let it go.

20. Check your expectations

Presumption often leads to drama. Remember the old saying, “Expectations are premeditated resentments.”

21. Engage in active play

Let your inner child come out and have some fun. Jump, dance, play, and pretend!

22. Stop criticizing yourself

The world is a hard enough place with more than enough critics. Your life is not served well by being one of them.

23. Focus your energy and attention on what you want

Thoughts, words, and actions all create energy. Energy attracts like energy. Put out what you want to get back.

24. Assign yourself “complaint free” days.

Make a conscious decision not to complain about anything for a whole day. It might be harder than you think and the awareness will stick with you.

25. Surround yourself with people you truly enjoy being in the company of

Personalities tend to be contagious, and not everyone’s is worth catching. Be judicious in your choices.

26. Manage your money

Financial concerns rank top on the list of what causes people stress. Take the time each month to do a budget, calculate what you actually spend and sanity check that against the money you have coming in.

27. Stop trying to control everything

Not only is your inner control freak sabotaging your sense of peace, it is also likely getting in the way of external relationships as well.

28. Practice affirmations

Repeat positive phrases that depict the life and qualities you want to attract. It may not come naturally to you, but it works.

29. Get up before sunrise

Personally witnessing the dawn brings a unique sense of awe and appreciation for life.

30. Be yourself

Nothing creates more inner discord than trying to be something other than who we really are. Authenticity breeds happiness.
