He Makes You Laugh: Why The Funny Guy Beats The Hot Guy Every Time

by Megan Mills

Laughing is one of life’s greatest pleasures. It’s universal, it’s simple and it looks good on you.

With a witty sense of humor and a silly, lighthearted outlook on daily activities, you find yourself grinning from ear to ear about random, sometimes inappropriate things.

It’s something we constantly do on our own without having to think about it; it's almost like breathing.

It also doesn’t hurt that laughing is great for our minds and bodies. Besides letting you show off those pearly whites and working your abs (Hey, it counts!), laughing makes us happier and healthier.

Because laughing is such a big part of our lives, we seek to find partners who love to do the same thing.

Gentlemen, can I let you in on a little secret?

A guy who makes me laugh — I’m talking out loud, contagious, straight-from-the-gut, don’t-care-who’s-around laugh — instantly wins, over the hot, boring guy.

Every. Single. Time.

A man who isn’t afraid to look stupid in front of you is one of the most attractive things in the world.

This trait is the most appreciated, rare find among the sea of men.

When other girls are naming Adam Levine or David Beckham as their celebrity crush, I'm naming Jim Carrey and Bill Hader.

A guy’s ability to make others laugh is drop dead sexy.

Not that we don’t love the attractive piece of man meat from time to time, but how long does that shallow seduction last? One night? A week?

It fades, and it fades fast.

The funny guys are better for you in the long run, and that is why they come out on top. They’re the ones who keep the honeymoon stage going past the first four months of the relationship.

You never have to worry about dull conversations or biting your tongue when smart-ass remarks come to mind.

This guy loves that you share the same passion for laughing at life along the way, and he’s right by your side to chime in on the jokes.

Even on a sh*tty PMS day, you know he can put a smile on your face.

He’s your escape to the lighter side on days when you didn’t think smiling was an option.

This doesn’t just stop during the day; the playfulness he brings to the bedroom is also alive and well. You’ve laughed more than once during the act.

The funny guy is so much more interesting and full of life; he has a story to tell, and more often than not, it’s hilarious.

This isn’t to say the traditional "hot" guys can’t be funny, too — they certainly can be.

If you’ve found both traits in a man, lock it down. Now.

Funny guys: You are sexy. And to some of us, the funny guy is often the most attractive man in the room.

Laughing is also highly contagious. We all know that one person whose laugh automatically make us join in because we can’t help it. It’s too hard to keep a straight face.

We always feel a tickle in our stomachs when our funny guy or best friend can’t breathe because he or she is laughing so hard.

These are the people we love to be around.

With this guy, having those laughing fits is something you can’t fake — unlike other things.

His natural gift to treat life as a fun adventure is something to treasure.

The funny guy has so much more to offer than just what meets the eye.

He never had to rely solely on his good looks or six-pack to get dates. He relied on his ability to make others laugh.

If you’re dating the funny guy, this works wonders on you two as a couple. Being silly together is one of the most intimate aspects in a relationship.

Anyone can have sex. It takes two people who can laugh at all the sh*t life throws at them to connect on a deeper level.

When you aren’t afraid to be stupid and silly in front of this person, you know you’ve got something special.

Finding a man who can keep you young at heart with his personality and zest for life will never fade.

You may grow old on the outside, but this guy will keep you young on the inside.

Stop and take the time to appreciate it the next time you find yourself in a laughing fit.

It feels amazing, doesn’t it? With this guy, laughing is part of your relationship, just like spooning and fights over what movie to watch.

Ladies, if you already have the funny guy, hold onto him and never let go. You're a lucky girl!

Keep laughing day after day. It’ll add the extra touch to your already-loving relationship. Ultimately, you just want to be with the one who makes you laugh.
