Why It’s Really Amazing To Date Someone Who Loves Movies

Why It’s Really Amazing To Date Someone Who Loves Movies

I absolutely love to watch movies. I can laugh about Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber and I am excited whenever I listen to Yoda’s wisdom in Star Wars. For a long time I interpreted my movie addiction as a weakness. I thought that watching a lot of movies was a waste of time. Today I know that every second I spent watching aliens bashing the human race helped me to become good at the dating game.

I didn’t waste my time. I wasn’t crazy for thinking that you can learn more for life by listening to Yoda’s grammatically incorrect wisdom than by going to college for four years. In fact, I found out that my love for movies helped me to become the amazing boyfriend that I am today. Let’s have a look at the reasons why watching at least one blockbuster before your next date can be all that is needed for the girl you are dating to think that you are the love of her life.

They are ready for an adventure

The typical stereotype that people have in mind when they think about someone who loves movies is a lazy guy on a couch who eats pizza all day long. Well, that stereotype can’t be any further from the truth.

People who love to watch movies are not lazy. They are adventurous and they are open for new experiences. My first trip to Thailand was actually inspired by Hangover 2. Today I am in a happy relationship with the girl of my dreams. I met her in Thailand.

They actually enjoy movie nights

I am pretty sure that I am not the only person on earth who hates clubs. The loud music, the drunk people and the superficial atmosphere are nothing for me. I rather enjoy staying in with a girl I like and enjoying a nice dinner with a good movie.

In case you also prefer cuddling on the couch over loud house music and senseless party conversations, you should definitely date someone who loves movies. While a lot of introverted people have the problem that their partner wants to go out every weekend, you don’t have this problem when you date a movie lover.

They know how to flirt

Have you ever been on a date with someone and you just didn’t know what to talk about? I think we’ve all experienced such a situation. You pick at your food, you say nothing and you hope that the time goes past. It’s terrible, but it’s also avoidable by dating someone who loves movies.

Whenever I dated a girl who is into movies I never had to face those dreaded moments of silence. There are basically two reasons for that. On the one hand, you always have to talk about something, even if it is just the latest George Clooney movie. On the other hand, movie lovers know how to flirt.

Watching countless conversations between Brad Pitt and several beautiful actresses gave me flirting skills that I haven’t had before. Believe it or not, but saying “I might be the outlaw, but you are the one stealing my heart” can actually work.

They reveal a lot about themselves

What’s the number one reason why you are on a date with someone? You want to get to know this person. While it can be quite difficult to find out if someone is marriage material or a crazy psychopath, it’s a lot easier when you are dating a movie love.

The truth is that the movies that we watch reveal who we are. If you are on a date with someone who absolutely loves to watch comedy and action movies, you can confidently assume that he or she is a fun person and open for some adventures. If you, however, date someone who is totally into horror movies, you might want to reconsider the idea of ending up in a relationship with this person.

They believe in true love

Yes, people who love movies are creative and open for an adventurous time, but they also believe in love. When you date someone who loves to watch movies, especially romantic movies, chances are high that he or she believes in true love.

Some people would call that being naive. I call it not being willing to give up. There are already too many people out there who have given up on love. Finding a movie enthusiast who believes in the true love that is portrait in Hollywood movies can be quite invigorating. It’s up to you if you do everything in your power to experience this true love.

10 Life Lessons You’d Better Learn Early on in Life

10 Life Lessons You’d Better Learn Early on in Life

There are so many lessons I wish I had learned while I was young enough to appreciate and apply them. The thing with wisdom, and often with life lessons in general, is that they’re learned in retrospect, long after we needed them. The good news is that other people can benefit from our experiences and the lessons we’ve learned.

Here’re 10 important life lessons you should learn early on:

1. Money Will Never Solve Your Real Problems

Money is a tool; a commodity that buys you necessities and some nice “wants,” but it is not the panacea to your problems.

There are a great many people who are living on very little, yet have wonderfully full and happy lives… and there are sadly a great many people are living on quite a lot, yet have terribly miserable lives.

Money can buy a nice home, a great car, fabulous shoes, even a bit of security and some creature comforts, but it cannot fix a broken relationship, or cure loneliness, and the “happiness” it brings is only fleeting and not the kind that really and truly matters. Happiness is not for sale. If you’re expecting the “stuff” you can buy to “make it better,” you will never be happy.

2. Pace Yourself

Often when we’re young, just beginning our adult journey we feel as though we have to do everything at once. We need to decide everything, plan out our lives, experience everything, get to the top, find true love, figure out our life’s purpose, and do it all at the same time.

Slow down—don’t rush into things. Let your life unfold. Wait a bit to see where it takes you, and take time to weigh your options. Enjoy every bite of food, take time to look around you, let the other person finish their side of the conversation. Allow yourself time to think, to mull a bit.

Taking action is critical. Working towards your goals and making plans for the future is commendable and often very useful, but rushing full-speed ahead towards anything is a one-way ticket to burnout and a good way to miss your life as it passes you by.

3. You Can’t Please Everyone

“I don’t know the secret to success, but the secret to failure is trying to please everyone” – Bill Cosby.

You don’t need everyone to agree with you or even like you. It’s human nature to want to belong, to be liked, respected and valued, but not at the expense of your integrity and happiness. Other people cannot give you the validation you seek. That has to come from inside.

Speak up, stick to your guns, assert yourself when you need to, demand respect, stay true to your values.

4. Your Health Is Your Most Valuable Asset

Health is an invaluable treasure—always appreciate, nurture, and protect it. Good health is often wasted on the young before they have a chance to appreciate it for what it’s worth.

We tend to take our good health for granted, because it’s just there. We don’t have to worry about it, so we don’t really pay attention to it… until we have to.

Heart disease, bone density, stroke, many cancers—the list of many largely preventable diseases is long, so take care of your health now, or you’ll regret it later on.

5. You Don’t Always Get What You Want

“Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans.” – John Lennon

No matter how carefully you plan and how hard you work, sometimes things just don’t work out the way you want them to… and that’s okay.

We have all of these expectations; predetermined visions of what our “ideal” life will look like, but all too often, that’s not the reality of the life we end up with. Sometimes our dreams fail and sometimes we just change our minds mid-course. Sometimes we have to flop to find the right course and sometimes we just have to try a few things before we find the right direction.

6. It’s Not All About You

You are not the epicenter of the universe. It’s very difficult to view the world from a perspective outside of your own, since we are always so focused on what’s happening in our own lives. What do I have to do today? What will this mean for me, for my career, for my life? What do I want?

Advertising

It’s normal to be intensely aware of everything that’s going on in your own life, but you need to pay as much attention to what’s happening around you, and how things affect other people in the world as you do to your own life. It helps to keep things in perspective.

7. There’s No Shame in Not Knowing

No one has it all figured out. Nobody has all the answers. There’s no shame in saying “I don’t know.” Pretending to be perfect doesn’t make you perfect. It just makes you neurotic to keep up the pretense of manufactured perfection.

We have this idea that there is some kind of stigma or shame in admitting our limitations or uncertainly, but we can’t possibly know everything. We all make mistakes and mess up occasionally. We learn as we go, that’s life.

Besides—nobody likes a know-it-all. A little vulnerability makes you human and oh so much more relatable.

8. Love Is More Than a Feeling; It’s a Choice

That burst of initial exhilaration, pulse quickening love and passion does not last long. But that doesn’t mean long-lasting love is not possible.

Love is not just a feeling; it’s a choice that you make every day. We have to choose to let annoyances pass, to forgive, to be kind, to respect, to support, to be faithful.

Relationships take work. Sometimes it’s easy and sometimes it’s incredibly hard. It is up to us to choose how we want to act, think and speak in a relationship.

9. Perspective Is a Beautiful Thing

Typically, when we’re worried or upset, it’s because we’ve lost perspective. Everything that is happening in our lives seems so big, so important, so do or die, but in the grand picture, this single hiccup often means next to nothing.

The fight we’re having, the job we didn’t get, the real or imagined slight, the unexpected need to shift course, the thing we wanted, but didn’t get. Most of it won’t matter 20, 30, 40 years from now. It’s hard to see long term when all you know is short term, but unless it’s life-threatening, let it go, and move on.

10. Don’t Take Anything for Granted

We often don’t appreciate what we have until it’s gone: that includes your health, your family and friends, your job, the money you have or think you will have tomorrow.

When you’re young, it seems that your parents will always be there, but they won’t. You think you have plenty of time to get back in touch with your old friends or spend time with new ones, but you don’t. You have the money to spend, or you think you’ll have it next month, but you might not.

Nothing in your life is not guaranteed to be there tomorrow, including those you love.

This is a hard life lesson to learn, but it may be the most important of all: Life can change in an instant. Make sure you appreciate what you have, while you still have it.
