Everybody likes a good story, but not everybody can tell a story well. If you are one of those people who are a good storyteller you might just be happier than other people. It turns out that good storytellers are happier and that male storytellers who can spin a good yarn are more attractive to females. Practice makes perfect so try telling stories to everybody!
It feels wonderful to tell someone your stories when you are first becoming intimate. Think of the people you have been in love with in your life. I bet that at least once early in your relationship you stayed up all night talking, telling stories that were revealing and illuminating. That deep communication is sexy.
Stories are profoundly intimate, says Kari Winter, a historian and literary critic at the University at Buffalo. â€œIt is empowering to the teller because they get recognition from the listener. And it is empowering to the listener because it helps them understand the teller.â€
