Rarely do we come across people who proclaim that they, “just don’t really care for music.” Rather, we find people who obsess over the latest songs and will adamantly defend their genre of choice. Scientists are beginning to study the connection between music and the brain more now than ever before. Science has begun to show us that music can actually alter brain waves and can greatly enhance mood. So what does this have to do with dating? I’m glad you asked. Today, I’d like to talk with you about the power of song in romance.
If you’re looking for a lasting relationship that may lead to a future filled with love, then you shouldn’t ignore the power of song in romance. A great gift for a newer girlfriend can be a mix CD with some of your favorite songs. Create a playlist for her on her Ipod. Take her to a concert. These are all just basic ideas surrounding the use of song. If used properly, you can help her fall in love with you by awakening her true passions and emotions through song.
I’m sure you’ve heard of couples who have a “song.” What does that mean? It means that there is one particular song that speaks to the heart of their relationship and every time they hear it, they think of their relationship with one another. It isn’t a good idea to try to establish a “song” for your relationship until it’s become more serious. It’s also important that the song be special to both of you.
The advice from this research is that it’s best to use song when you can. If you’re driving with your date, you can set the mood with some music. First kiss? More magical if you can manage to play the right music in the background. Think of the movies. Instrumentals and vocals both have the power to change or enhance mood. Let her feel more into you by playing mood-setting music. Will music alone get her to fall in love with you? No. Of course not. However, it can be a powerful way to set the mood for the evening or to make a special moment even more special.
