They say that fear can make us see the world in a more beautiful way. And that being love-struck is also associated with danger.
There is a reason that survivors of tragedies and close-scrapes are often quickly smitten with one another. It’s a psychological condition. And knowledge of this is the secret weapon of every great lover.
So for all you romantics, take heed. Here is a surefire way to open the heart of the one you hold dear this Christmas season.
But first, some background.
A psychology experiment once attempted to prove that emotion was tied to physical arousal. To put this theory to the test, the psychologists were drawn to the breathtaking Capilano Suspension Bridge. Spanning a steep ravine, the bridge is well known for elevating heart rates and stirring souls. The experimenters were interested in how the adrenaline rush of the treacherous fall and wobbly walkway triggered the emotional state of arousal.
To examine the ability of danger to conjure romantic feelings, they had a beautiful female interviewer ask men questions on the bridge. When the swaying, exhilarating interview was done, she would leave her phone number in case they wanted to follow up.
Male subjects were more likely to call for the results (or to use the call as a pretext for a date) if they were on the Capilano Suspension Bridge than an ordinary, less scary bridge.
The conclusion drawn: fear and love, in the heart, are actually the same thing.
So women, take note: This fantastic bridge holds the key to the secret spell. And men, take heart, for while this experiment was never tested on women, there is a good evidence to suggest that arousal in your counterpart will be reciprocated.
So it’s worth a shot. And there has never been a better time to fall in love over a hungry ravine.
Capilano Suspension Bridge is now hosting Canyon Lights. Come for an enchanted evening to enjoy lights in the forest, along the bridge, illuminating the whimsical backdrop of one of the most exhilarating and lovely places on earth.
Guests will also be treated to gingerbread cookie decorating, seasonal music from the Christmas band, glass ornament blowing with Malcolm MacFadyen and of course, the splendor of magical twinkling lights throughout the park.
Admission is free for members. $15 for adults, $5 for children (6-12) or $35 for a family (two adults, two children). Proceeds from admission will be donated to the BC Professional Fire Fighters Burn Fund, with a goal of raising $20,000 for the organization to support Burn Awareness Week in BC elementary schools.
