According to a 2006 study in Europe people who read fiction regularly show better social skills and empathy compared to those who don’t read much or those who read non-fiction.
Something to do with reading fiction is like dating thousands of different characters.
And this is corroborated by two separate studies by Raymond Mar and Keith Oakley, two Canadian professors who drew the conclusion that fiction readers are able to better stay in the moment, are more compassionate and make better lovers.
If you want a good lover, forget the local bars and clubs.
It’s time to hang out at the book store and library.
Let’s explore more as to why.
1. They Have Self-awareness
If there is a specific reason why book lovers make better lovers it is because they have greater self-awareness.
Book lovers know what they like and what they don't like.
They are far better able to express their sexual and their emotional needs as a consequence.
Speaking the language of love means knowing what ideas and perceptions of the world unite us rather than divide us.
"Two hearts beating as one" or "two sides of the same coin" may have become clichés, but that doesn't mean they are not true.
This means you can invest in a long-term relationship, because it will only grow stronger with time.
