Weird. Scary. Many people are scared of horror movies. The scenes of people being attacked, tortured, and killed by bizarre characters, monsters, or supernatural powers might not be a cup of coffee for many.
However, research shows that the production of dopamine, the ‘feel-good’ chemical, in the brain is triggered more when people are scared.
So, whether you are having a date out or just relaxing indoors with your partner, get hold of a horror movie to start the journey of making your relationship happier.
There are many good reasons to watch a scary horror movie with your loved one in the evening. To make it even better, watch with some coffee, grab a blanket, and get in front of your screen. If you are going out, ensure that your seats are next to each other and that you get some hot snacks.
As mentioned in the beginning, people produce more dopamine in the brain, which promotes happiness. Even if you were in a somber mood, you will be amazed by how this will cheer you up. A horror movie is a great way to set the pace for a cheerful weekend if you want to remain smiling. Better still, watching these movies more often will flood your relationship with happiness, especially when you solve your other challenges maturely.
Dopamine also reduces stress, according to science. The more of it there is, the happier and less stressed you are. As such, horror movies should be part of your entertainment in the evenings or any other time you are free. The secret is in watching the movies together. Let your partner know when you feel stressed by work, school, or any other issue and you feel like a movie will make it better.
A Closer Feeling
As you cuddle together in fear, you start to realize that there is a feeling of care even if you are in a fwb relationship. This is one of the many ways that people fall in love. For couples who are already in a serious relationship, horror movies will make it even stronger. Be sure that both of you are comfortable with everything.
A Feel of Care
Horror movies also promote a feeling of care in couples. After the chills caused by horrifying scenes, a touch, hug, or even gaze by your partner is the most comforting gesture that you need. It feels good to care for each other in such a moment and this is often transferred to the entire relationship. So, this is a great start for caring in a relationship and it will promote happiness.
As you cuddle, grab each other’s hands, hug, and comfort each other. The chemistry will work stronger than ever. Thus, horror movies can be a great foreplay stage to get aroused for a happy sex life. The more you watch horror movies, the more intimate you get and your relationship will always be happy.
Although these movies send jitters in the bodies of many people, they are great for couples. As you can see, they promote happiness in many ways. That is why you need to keep an eye on every new one that gets released today.
