Everyone loves to laugh, that’s just a given. Humor is a great way to connect with anyone- from a guy you’re seeing to a friend to an employer. It is one of the best ways to bond and just let loose and have some fun.
Being funny comes easily to some people, and is not as easy for others. And everyone has a different scene of humor. Some people are silly, some are raw, some have a dry sense of humor, some have a perverted sense of humor, different strokes!
You don’t need to be a natural comedian to be funny. Sometimes asking the right questions can lead to some belly-aching laughter.

Some Important Points About Humor
Knowing the right questions to ask is part of the equation- it’s also important to understand how humor works. Be honest about your humor- don’t pretend to find things hilarious when you don’t.
Sometimes you won’t “get” someone’s sense of humor, sometimes this doesn’t matter, sometimes it will be a deal breaker. Most guys will want a woman who appreciates their sense of humor. If you don’t, or can’t, then it just might not be a match and that’s OK.
