Whether you're a guy or girl, you both play a part in sharing a successful date. So why not make it interesting? Being boring is the sure way you won't get another one. So, looking for ways to add a little fun and flair to your next date?
Humor! After all, laughter is one of the surefire paths to a successful connection. But finding the right balance - not too much, not too little - is key. So if you want to use humor on your next date, here are some tips that you can follow.
1. Start with stories instead of jokes: It's often easier to tell a funny story than it is to remember an entire joke. Plus, telling stories allows you to inject your own personality into the narrative, which makes it more likely that your date will connect with you. This is how you warm them up before belly bursts.
2. Avoid self-deprecation: Don't put yourself down in an attempt to make someone else laugh. Self-deprecating humor can come off as insecure and could make your date uncomfortable. Some is okay, too much is weak.
3. Pay attention: Studies have shown that couples who share laughter are more likely to be happy in their relationships. Duhh. So try tuning into your date's reality and sense of humor then see if there are any shared topics or interests that you can rip on together during the conversation.
4. Have fun with it: Above all else, don’t take yourself too seriously! People respond well when they can see that you’re having a good time and aren’t taking everything super seriously – so don’t be afraid to crack a few jokes and let loose on your next date!
