Pluviophile (n): a lover of rain; someone who finds joy and peace of mind during rainy days
If your answer is “YES” then you may be a pluviophile. With the recent cold front here in North Carolina, I must say I have looked forward to the warmer weather. With the warm weather also comes the rain. It made me wonder why so many of us either love or hate those water droplets.
I have always enjoyed the sound of raindrops hitting a metal rooftop. There is some sense of peaceful bliss that comes with knowing that you can just enjoy being inside. You feel comfortable doing absolutely nothing as you bond with nature and embrace God’s creation.
Typically when we are inside locked up in our homes, there comes a sense of peace, safety, and security that comes with those water droplets falling. There also tends to be a lot of self-reflection when grayness takes over the sky.
For those people who love change; the rain brings just that and it also reminds us who is in full control of our world. Say you plan a beach trip and spend a tremendous amount of time getting all the stars to line up for vacation, hotels, savings, and outdoor activities only to get to your destination and realize some things are just out of your control.
For those who find joy and peace on rainy days, you quite possibly may be a pluviophile.
You love being lazy
You find that the rain actually justifies being lazy and not doing anything productive. Socially, you love not having to interact with people, so it makes for a good reason to not do anything or use a sick day at work.
You love being cozy and comfortable
The rain droplets are a great reason to cuddle up on a couch or extend sleep time in bed. You find comfort in knowing there are no real expectations inside or outside because of the water curtain and instead grab your favorite hot beverage.
You like the smell of it
So if you sniff the rain, you probably most definitely fit into this the pluviophile category. Just FYI, if people see you sniffing rain droplets and you find comfort in that, you may have a little more explaining to do. Buy a rain scent candle instead. Lol
You hug close to the window
As you snuggle on that couch or in your favorite recliner, you open the window instead of closing it so you can hear better in your rain daze. You have to open the blinds and curtains so you can watch it fall and see it patter the window.
You like the thunder accompaniment
When you hear the rain accompanied with thunder, your excitement level rises a few notches. During the thunderstorm, you feel the most alive and relaxed. You exude happiness when the two forces combine.
If you answered “Yes” to the majority of these questions, then you know exactly where you fit. Consider yourself a pluviophile from this point forward.
