    Default Trouble with humor

    Hey guys,

    So I know how girls love guys with a sense of humor and there was a video I watched that explained girls don't like class clown, try hard humor though. So my question to you guys is, what kind of humor do girls respond well to? I feel like I try too hard to get the girl to laugh. It seems like it comes across as try hard and needy. Does any have any suggestions to improve in this area?

    Thanks for the advice!

    Positive energy dude. It's more important than being funny and usually leads to being funny without trying anyway. Say "hey what's up?" In a boring ass quiet tone and see where that gets you. Try again "hey, what's up?!?!?" in an assertively quirky tone with a huge grin and you already got people laughing. It's all about that positive energy. Don't worry so much about what you say but how you say it. It's called the vibe. If you're being friendly, positive, outgoing, fun - people pick up on that and it's contagious. The way you carry yourself and treat others is far more important than what words are coming out of your mouth. And that's as it should be. People will be drawn to you if you emit good vibes, especially females. =]

    I don't tend to go in for jokes or stuff particularly, I just bust one her, make fun of her, frustrate her till she can't cope.......then cut it down, be nice and reel her in
    Basically I tease, and tease and tease some more, after all that's what flirting is when it comes down to it

    Lucky for you, I'm a humor writer, and I've been so for years now. I'll tell you straight up this very important piece of advice:

    You can't make everyone laugh.

    The same joke or technique may seem like it is invincible, but there is bound to be one girl that it does not work on for one reason or another. With this in mind, you shouldn't be overconfident about a joke, and you shouldn't suspect that a joke is a total failure when you tell it.

    With that in mind, I will move on to the next step:

    Diction.

    You must be very careful about your choice of words. One word can mean the difference between ticking someone off and making them laugh. It can also make a huge difference in how someone views you.

    For example, let's look at these three statements:

    1. "What the fudge was that?"
    2. "What the hell was that?"
    3. "What the f--- was that?"

    All three of the above are the same phrase, but they all hold different reactions or meanings. I can tell you that #1 comes from my ex, and that was something that I severely hated about her. Everyone has their own preferences in words, but I can tell you that #2 would be a universal standard when it comes to this phrase.

    The next thing is to be observant of things. It takes a great sense of imagination and a good observation of details in order to catch the funny things. Exaggeration, understatements, metaphors, similes, and other tools are extremely valuable. If you catch something about her physically, verbally, or so on that stands out, that is your opportunity to make a joke.

    In the mean time, I would recommend just becoming more observant of current events and things around you. When you see them, pull them out and poke fun at it. That's the best way to work on your humor.

    So it sounds like it is all about the delivery of message and body language when it comes to humor. Going to try these techniques out. Thanks for the helpful replies!
