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.

How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

Think you have a boring life?

The definition of boring is dull or not interesting. Maybe you’ve been doing the same thing and living the same life for too long, or maybe your daily routine is limiting your growth and happiness. Whatever your reason is, the following list of 20 things can definitely make any day more interesting. Some of them are silly, while some are more meaningful, so hopefully just reading the list makes your life less boring and sparks your creativity.

Let’s dive in the list to quit your boring life and start living an interesting (and meaning) one!

1. Channel Your 7-Year-Old Self

What would he or she want to do right now? Color? Paint? Run around outside? Play dress up? Eat with your hands? Play that instrument hiding in the back of your closet that you haven’t touched in years?

Just because you’re a grown up doesn’t mean any of this stuff will be less enjoyable than you remember it. Give yourself permission to play.

2. Go Play with Kids

Speaking of little kids, if you have your own or access to any (in a non-creepy way, like they’re your niece or your best friend’s kid, you get the idea) go play with them!

They didn’t create an entire show called Kids Say The Darndest Things because kids aren’t hilarious. They also keep things so simple, and we can really stand to be reminded of this and stop allowing ourselves to get bogged down in boring details.

3. Order a Hot Dog

While you’re eating it, Google: “What’s in a hot dog?” You decide whether or not you want to finish it.

4. For the Ladies: Wear Your Sexiest Lingerie Under Your Work Clothes

Your “little secret” will leave you feeling anything but boring all day!

5. Play Cell Phone Roulette

You’ll need at least one buddy for this. Scroll through the contacts in your phone, stop on a random one and call the person.

You could spark an incredible catch up session or be incredibly awkward. Neither are boring.

6. Fill out a Pack of Thank-You Cards

Give them to random people who probably don’t get thanked too often for doing what they do ever day.

Ideas: police officers, librarians, servers, baristas, cab drivers, sanitation workers, teachers, people behind any check out counter, receptionists, your friends, the guy at the falafel stand, etc.

7. Sign up for a Class in Something You’ve “Always Wanted to Do”, or Something That Makes You Really Uncomfortable

Ideas: pole dancing, salsa lessons, improv, pottery, cooking, knitting (yup, there are classes for this, too!), karate, boxing, something techy like the workshops they run in Apple stores, get Rosetta Stone and learn that language you’ve always wanted to speak, etc.

What’s good about joining an interest class is that you will also meet new people!

8. Interview Your Grandparents About Their Lives

You can bet they’ve had some crazy experiences you probably never knew about.

9. Get up on Stage at an Open Mic Night

Whether you’re funny or not, get up on stage and just talk funny. And if you’re not, memorize a few of your favorite jokes and tell those!

10. Do Something for Someone Else That You Wish Someone Would Do for You

We all have a few ideas on this list. I promise you will feel amazing after and anything but bored.

11. Start a DIY Project in Your Home

It doesn’t have to be super complicated. If you need ideas, there’re plenty on Pinterest. Or you can also check out these 30 Awesome DIY Projects that You’ve Never Heard of.

12. Plan a Weekend Trip or an All-Out Vacation

This will give you something to look forward to.

Even if you don’t have the time or money to go on a vacation, plan for a staycation, which is same fun and relaxing!

13. People Watch

Find a bench in a crowded area (centers of transportation like airports, bus stops and train stations are great for this!) and just observe.

People are infinitely interesting.

14. Eat Something You’ve Never Eaten Before

Bonus points if it’s a random fruit or veggie.

15. Dance

You can get your friends together for a night on the town or just pull up a video on YouTube and bust a move from your own living room.

If you’re feeling extra brave, you can even dance in public and get other people involved.

16. Go to YOUTUBE and Search “Funny Pets” or “Funny Babies”

This is also a great quickie ab workout as you will be laughing hysterically.

17. Pick up a Book and Start Reading

Check out the NY Times Best Sellers lists and grab a new book you can get lost in.

18. Step Away from the Computer and Go Get Some Time with People You Care About in Real Life

Facebook stalking doesn’t count as real social interaction. You can even share this post with your friends and vote on which one you’d like to do together!

19. Check out a Museum You’ve Never Been to Before

OK, depending on your interests, this one might actually be boring. If you love learning, art or different cultures though, this one is for you!

20. Write a List of Things You Desire and Truly Want

This is a great way to help you figure out the real reason why you’re feeling bored about your life. Maybe you haven’t really done things that you truly enjoy? Maybe what you’ve wanted to do all the time has been left behind?

Think about the list of things you really want to do, and ask yourself why you aren’t doing these things (yet). Then start taking your first step to make what you want happen.

Now go make your life interesting and live your dream life!
