Go ahead, put on another sappy love story; there’s actually scientific evidence that watching romantic chick flicks is good for you!
A study from the University of Michigan found that women’s levels of progesterone, a neurological hormone that reduces anxiety and stress, go up by more than 10 percent after watching a romantic film. Plus, romantic films tend to bring out the romantic side of people, and you can never have too much romance (just don’t let unrealistic expectations ruin your own relationship!).
So, next time your guy gives you a hard time about watching another love story, hit him with that! Though, it’s not guaranteed he’ll want to watch it with you.
