Let’s face it, it’s better to have a conversation with a funny person vs. having one with half a personality. Being around someone that has a lively personality and doesn’t mind making you laugh, makes your day a bit better, relaxes your nerves and is even an attraction factor.
From my own discussions with guys and girls growing up, they all believe that having a sense of humor is definitely up there with the qualities they are seeking in a partner.
So what is it about a person’s sense of humor that really places high on our charts?
The person is laid back – Being around an uptight person brings out worst in a setting. However those who normally laughs all the time tends to take the relaxed approach and may normally be up to doing anything fun.
Increases the comfort level – No one likes being in an awkward situation. That’s what happens when everyone is too serious to start a conversation. Imagine what its like if you were in a relationship with a person that makes you feel like this in public.
Experience – People with a great sense of humor have often experienced hardship or survived something terrible that allows them to talk about in a different light. Heck you can probably even ask them for advice.
Discards physical imperfections – A funny person doesn’t have to look like a super model. A study from Northumbria University says that women are more likely to be attracted to men who have a good sense of humor, which has the power to overlook physical imperfections like beer bellies, and baldness.
Intelligence – Being funny can often be associated to being smart since the person has to portray the joke or story it in their own point of view while displaying it to us in a way that we understand as funny.
There are probably many other examples as to why we are attracted to those who cracks us up. Next time you’re out on a date, pay attention to see if these examples qualify the person to be attractive through your eyes.
