There’s a reason people don’t really watch scary movies alone—No one wants to be scared while they’re by themselves! It’s so much better to watch something frightening with other people. It’s the BEST to watch a scary movie with a date though.
You may not think seeing a scary movie on a date is a good idea, especially if you scare easily. But it’s actually a fantastic idea. Seriously, we can prove it to you:
Show How Brave You Are
You’re definitely going to want to impress your date a little. You shouldn’t ever change yourself to impress someone, of course, but sitting through a scary movie is impressive on its own!
See How Brave Your Date Is
If your date is super brave, you’ll be able to tell when watching a creepy film. They might make you feel safe! And if they’re really scared, it’ll be super cute.
Excuse To Cuddle
This is the obvious reason, right?! When you’re watching a scary movie on a date, you basically have to cuddle. It’s a rule.
You'll Be More Attracted To Your Date
There’s some science behind this, but when you watch scary movies, your brain releases chemicals that make you feel infatuated. Those chemicals don’t fade right away so you’re left feeling really into your date.
Opens Up Conversation About Actual Fears
Watching a scary movie together is a great way to have a conversation afterwards. People love talking about their fears, and you get to learn some intimate info about your date.
You Share A Common Experience
People who get scared together stay together. Or so I hear. No, really. When you share a traumatic experience with someone, you automatically have a bond with them because you went through it together. Your movie date could blossom into a full-fledged relationship!
