Why is it when girls are asked what qualities they look for in a guy, most say a sense of humor?
There's just something about a guy who makes you giggle like a little schoolgirl, and there's a reason Seth Rogen never fails to steal our hearts in every movie.
Funny guys have a charm and electricity about them that is hard to deny. Below are the real reasons why the silly man will always have you hooked:
1. He never fails to entertain you.
Dating a guy with a good sense of humor never gets boring. He is spontaneous and will pull almost any stunt for a laugh. It makes things exciting because you have to be quick to keep up with him.
2. To be funny, a guy must be witty and creative: plus and plus!
If you ask any writer what the most difficult genre to write for is, he or she will most likely say comedy. Sure, anyone can tell a good ol' fashion fart joke, but it takes a certain type of a genius to nail a punchline that will make you laugh until your belly hurts.
To be on his game, he must be quick on his feet and original. If your guy is truly funny, he probably has a vast knowledge of peculiar facts and an arsenal of voices to share them in.
3. He knows how to handle social situations.
Nothing eases up an awkward moment better than a good-hearted joke. He has made enough inappropriate wisecracks to know when the time is right to tease and when it is better to keep his mouth shut.
You no longer have to cringe about leaving your guy in a room alone with others. Part of being funny is knowing where everyone else is coming from. Building off others, he can find something in common that they can all chat or even chuckle about.
4. He is naturally very observant.
How is he going to poke fun at your "Hunger Games" poster unless he's taken a moment to observe your room?
The reason comedians are so good at what they do is attributed to their keen sense of what's going on around them and ability to find the absurdness in it. A good way to one-up his witty remarks is to thank him for noticing.
5. He makes you a better person.
You stressed out too much before he entered the picture; now he teaches you to laugh at life and yourself.
Your safety wall melts away when he is around, and when he makes a fool out of himself, you feel more comfortable to do the same. What is a sweeter love when you can both truly be yourself around each other?
6. He gets along with your friends.
He goes out of his way to impress your friends and show them a good time. He feels the need to perform and does not mind taking the stage.
Your friends like him because he is the life of the party. Whether it's wacky impressions or dry sarcasm, they find him a riot and like seeing you so smitten.
7. He doesn't feed into drama.
Goofy guys usually do not let their temper get the best of them. He tends not to take life too seriously or any dramatic person for that matter.
If there is another funny friend in the group, he sees it as a faceoff. They are more likely to exchange punchlines instead of punches, making it even more fun for everyone else.
8. He radiates confidence.
It takes a secure guy to poke fun at himself for your amusement. Even if he does not act super confident in front of everyone, it is obvious when you two are together.
Maybe it is something about having you on his arm, but anytime you are together, there is a chip on his shoulder that you find charming, yet playfully challenging. Just keep it light and avoid a low blow because underneath every funny guy is an emotional one.
9. Pranksters are secretly sensitive.
Let's face it: The class clown was never the smartest guy in class or the biggest jock in high school. He made others laugh to get by and was easily able to hide his emotions behind his jokes.
Unlike so many guys who seem one-dimensional, funny guys have a beautiful complex to them. When they are comfortable enough to reveal their sensitive side to us, it is a special and intimate feeling.
10. Most importantly, he never fails to bring a smile to your face.
It is impossible to stay upset for long with his cute little smirk in front of you. He knows exactly how to make you laugh through tears, and it's both a blessing and a curse.
If you laugh at all his funny antics, you probably have a crush. If you also laugh at his failed one-liners, you, my friend, are already in love.
