How to Be Funny and Engaging

12. June 2013 by Lorena 0 Comments

Every woman loves a man who can make her laugh. It’s not surprising. Laughter is a social lubricant that can ease you through the inevitable awkward moments when you are trying to get to know someone. It literally makes you feel good by releasing endorphins.

 

But, how do you make her laugh? If you are shy or reserved, you may feel nervous or inhibited about introducing humor to your conversations. Our tips can help.

 

Think About What Makes You Laugh

Chances are, some of the things that you find funny, she’ll find funny, too. If you hear a good joke, share it with her in an email message. Make sure that you avoid jokes that are too crude or dirty, as this can come off gross instead of amusing. Also, keep it like on jokes that rely on complicated wordplay. These can be a bit tough for a non-native speaker to understand.

 

Watch a Funny Video Before You Chat or Email Her

Watching, say, a stand-up comedian can help loosen you up and get you in a humorous frame of mind. A good laugh can also make you feel more at ease, which makes conversation go more smoothly and naturally. Soon enough, you’ll find that, without even thinking about it, you are flirting comfortably and making jokes.

 

Don’t Try Too Hard

When humor is forced, it falls flat. Don’t sit over the keyboard trying to think of something funny to say. This is just going to put pressure on you, which is the opposite of what it takes to be engaging, charming and funny. Just relax, keep the banter light, and your natural sense of humor will come out.
