Cold Outside? Watch A Chick Flick
An upcoming study reportedly notes that the perfect movie for a cold Winter’s night is a chick flick.
The report, due out this August in the Journal of Consumer Research, argues that feeling physically cold makes people want to feel emotionally warm. Researchers in Hong Kong and Boulder, Colorado conducted four different tests to make their observations. One study saw them give people hot or cold tea, then ask them to select movies from a rental company.Those given iced tea were more likely to pick chick flicks to watch. Another test revealed people in cold-weather cities, or sitting in a cold room, were more likely to pick romantic movies.
I guess the message here for guys is, if you don’t want to watch Eat Pray Love, turn up the heat. And don’t offer your special someone any iced tea. Even if it’s 90 degrees outside.
