Scary Movie Date Night


At this time of year, you can’t watch TV without catching a gruesome advert for the latest scary movie coming out this Halloween.  We all know that sitting in front of the big screen in silence for 2 hours isn’t the best way to get to know someone, but we think you should give this one a try. It may not sound romantic, but watching a horror movie will bring you closer together…

It’s an excuse to snuggle
If you’re a little bit nervous about making the first move,  a scary movie will have you cuddling up for dear life in no time! A bit of kissing is also an excuse to take your eyes away from the horror on the screen.

Test their bravery
If they’re really brave, you’ll feel safe with them. And if they’re really scared? Well that’s just adorable. Although, the fact that they agreed to watch a scary film with someone they’re getting to know is courageous enough!

You’ll be more attracted to each other
Studies have shown that watching a horror movie releases dopamine from your brain, this makes you feel more infatuated. So, watching someone saw off their own foot whilst trying not to throw up brings you closer together…

You won’t want to go home
If you’re both too scared to go home yet, why not suggest going for a drink after or grabbing a bite to eat? You can both talk about how brave you were or share your deepest darkest fears with each other.

You’ll both be equally traumatised
Sharing a traumatic event with someone gives you a special bond. You’ll have a common experience to laugh about and it could lead to a second date!

Until next time,

The Just Singles Team.
