Ask men and women which qualities are most attractive in a mate and both sexes are likely to rank a good sense of humor near the top of their lists. The trait is so sought after that it has its own acronym—GSOH—in dating ads.
Humor has been viewed as the one social characteristic that men and women seek in crudely equal percentage. After all, everyone wants a partner who is enjoyable and amusing. That is why a lot of men are using cheap pick up lines to make a girl grin.
At least, that’s the prevalent notion. However, humor researchers have long noted gender differences in the use and appreciation of humor. While women want to settle down with a guy who can crack a good joke, men, to a large degree, want a partner who laughs at their antics.
The rudimentary variance is that males tend to use humor to compete with other men, while women tend to use humor to bond with others. Studies show that men more often use humor to jockey for position with other males when they are in the company of women.
Why Make Women Giggle?
The attraction of male humor is so strong that female laughter may have progressed as a signal of sexual interest. Picture a woman’s girlish giggles as she flirts with a man at a bar. Certainly, a German study found that when male and female strangers involved in usual discussion, the degree to which a woman laughed while talking to a man was suggestive of her interest in dating him. How much the woman laughed also foreseen the man’s desire to date her. On the flip side, how often a man laughed was distinct to his interest in a woman.
If you devote any time at all watching those T.V shows or listen radio shows where they get a bunch of women together and ask them what they look for in a man. You probably realize that 8 out 10 women will answer humor.
You might wonder what’s the point of all this. Well, the point is if humor is such a big thing to women, then wouldn’t it make sense to learn how to use it to attract them? This might sound obvious to you, and it does but here is the thing.
Most guys realizes or at least somewhat know that women likes a man with a sense of humor, that’s why when they approach a girl they always try to think of something clever to say. But as the Bruce Lee once said “knowing isn’t enough, you must act” and when it comes to attract women with humor you must also act in the proper way.
What most guys do when they try to use humor to attract women is that they focus on being funny, and not attractive funny or the type of humor that would make you irresistible with women.
