How Music Affects Your Relationship: a Few Statistics

What can show you the truth better than statistics? According to it, most of the warmest memories are associated with music. It’s about the first kiss and charming background music. It's about the first dance and sweet melody serenades. It’s about the first song, sung with friends in karaoke and your first romantic dinner with a beloved one. It's possible to say that music is a part of the happiest moments of our lives. So, it's no surprise that the scientists have found a positive effect, which music has on romantic relationships.

1. Romance and sex.

It turns out that couples who regularly put on music at home have a more romantic relationship. With the help of regular interviews and monitoring at home, scientists had the opportunity to make sure that people who listen to music at home, have sex 69% more often than those who do not listen to music. Another interesting fact is that almost 25% of people had turned down sex before they started playing romantic music.

2. Household chores and cooking.

Music helps get rid of quarrels about household chores. 83% of study participants said that the most unpleasant household duties become quite tolerable when they put on music. The next time when you don’t want to wash the dishes put on the cheerful, powerful melody.

Besides, 50% of the respondents answered that they are much more pleased to cook to the music, and another 20% said that they are more likely to spend a great time with beloved ones when they have some music on. While the soup is boiling in the kitchen, and the music is playing in the background, arrange a short dance evening.

3. The feeling of love.

One of the most interesting discoveries is that listening to music contributes to the feeling of love. Those who hadn’t been listening to music at home regularly, told about a significant increase in the feeling of love when they began to do that. 43% of people even said that they felt "incredibly" loved. Music unites hearts. Often, people create families because they have the same tastes in music. The joint listening to music acts as therapy. For example, if there are conflicts and disagreements within the family, music creates an atmosphere of reconciliation and makes you cheer up.

4. Attractiveness.

Austrian psychologists have found out that women find men more attractive after listening to music they like. The experiment involved 68 women and 34 men who had similar music preferences. They listened to various melodies, differing in their dynamics, the complexity of perception and degree of pleasantness. Then, these people were shown the photos of representatives of the opposite sex, whose facial expressions were neutral, and offered to evaluate the attractiveness of these people, as well as the potential for relationships with them.

The studies have shown that women called men attractive more often and expressed more desire to meet with them after listening to pleasant music. At the same time, the degree of attractiveness was enhanced by more complex and dynamic melodies.
