Study after study affirms that people want a mate with a sense of humor. But it’s less about you being a jokester than about finding a style of humor that makes you both laugh.
People say they want a sense of humor in a mate, but that’s a broad concept.
What is strongly related to relationship satisfaction is the humor that couples create together.
If you share a sense of what’s funny, it affirms
you and affirms your relationship through laughter.
Playfulness between romantic partners is a crucial component
in bonding and establishing relational security and that laughter, particularly shared laughter, is an important indicator of romantic attraction between potential mates.
It’s good to have humor. It’s better to see it in your partner. And it’s best to share it.
It’s not about being a great comedian
, but finding what’s funny in the everyday and enjoying it together.
It is most important you do it together.
