I heard that the word 'lover' has a sexual meaning but do you think it's okay to say lover here?
Many people watch movies to relieve their stresses, to enjoy with a lover, and even to study subjects like science and history. It this way, movies make it difficult for people to have some quility time if directors prefer to deals with real life.

These sentences which you keep asking us to 'fix', haha, should be posted in the Editing and Writing forum, with a title which 'includes all or part of the word/phrase being discussed'*— such as 'to enjoy with a lover'.
I have already moved some of them there myself.

"Significant other" is better. "Lover" is such a 1970s, pre-AIDS type of word.
'Watching a film with a lover' is just fine.
Lovers are people who are in love. It's nobody's business but their own whether or not they are in a sexual relationship.
If you're not happy with it, use 'someone they love' 'a loved one' or 'their sweetheart'.
