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.

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.
