Being funny ain’t easy. Ask me about it. Have you ever felt like you are really on a roll and then you see no one’s laughing. Well, that is the most embarrassing thing that can happen to you humor wise. It is even more humiliating when the person not laughing is the date that you’re trying to impress. I thought girls love funny men. Well they do, but what I did not know was that different girls dig different kinds of humor. I’ve had some seriously shitty luck with girls in this area.
Once I cracked a joke about a passing girl who had a weird nose and my date got offended and said I was insensitive. I should not be making jokes about other people’s looks. Well, I was stumped. What could I do? I looked down and then managed enough courage to steer the conversation out of troubled waters. But seriously guys, this used to happen a lot to me. I’m thankful I know the art of steering conversations; otherwise all my dates would be a nightmare. Bad humour can cost you dates; trust me.
There was this time when I made fun of a girl’s dress and she was grumpy the whole night. I didn’t see what the big deal was but then a female friend of mine said that rule number one of humor with girls is that you should never make fun of her, or her dress or her shoes or her make up; well you get the drift. I tried not putting my foot in my mouth from then on.
Still folks, I have had some good times too. I cracked a joke and the girl giggled away. I know this much that of a girl giggles and hits you playfully after you say a joke, she’s bought it. Most girls do like funny guys but the guys take it too far with their humor. Well, I’ve learned my lesson; tough ones too. Embarrassment is something I don’t take well. If there’s nowhere I can hide, I try not to be experimental with my humor. More importantly, I try and find out what kind of humour the girl likes and strictly adhere to that category. No point in being sarcastic with a slapstick kinda girl, is there? Likewise, an intelligent girl would think you’re very lame if you went for the slapstick jokes.
