Date A Funny Guy — He’ll Be The Best Boyfriend You’ll Ever Have

There’s a lot to consider when looking for the perfect guy. You have to be physically attracted to him, of course, but he also has to have the right qualities — honesty, trustworthiness, and ambition are all important, but he also has to be laid-back enough to weather the tough times in life. That’s why a sense of humor is the most important quality a guy can have in a relationship.

  1. He’ll always have a joke ready.When you’re having a stressful day at work, your funny guy will text you a joke because he’s thinking of you and that’s just how awesome he is. When you’re hanging out, he’ll randomly say stuff that’s hilarious. If you want to spend your life happily laughing and constantly being surprised, date a funny guy.
  2. He can effortlessly fill an uncomfortable silence.Dudes who are just naturally funny don’t experience prolonged uncomfortable silences like the rest of us. They’re able to discern whether a silence is natural and okay or uncomfortable, and fill those uncomfortable silences with entertaining conversation. The ability to make people laugh on the fly is seriously respectable.
  3. You’ll find your own sense of humor.Even if you’re not the type who usually gravitates towards jokes, being with someone who’s constantly funny will awaken that part of your brain, and you’ll inevitably end up laughing more even when you’re by yourself.
  4. He’ll help you through the stressful times.When you’re stressed out, you need someone to be there for you and to relieve the stress. Your funny guy will do both. He’ll be there to listen, plus provide a lighter perspective on the situation to help you get through.
  5. He’ll know when it’s not a joke.The best thing about funny guys is that they also know when humor is inappropriate, so he’ll be serious when it’s necessary. Then, when the serious matters have been taken care of, he’ll naturally lighten the mood.
  6. He’ll be fun in bed.Sex is always better when it’s not too serious, and we all know that awkward things happen sometimes during sex. If you’re with a funny guy, he’ll be able to roll with the punches and laugh off anything mildly awkward that happens, which will help make the experience so much better overall.
  7. He’ll be your best friend.When you start spending a lot of time with a funny guy, you’ll find out quickly how much better every day is when he’s around. Funny guys are the kind who can quickly become your best friend and more, which makes them incredible long-term partners.
  8. Laughter really is the best medicine.When you’re considering sharing your life with someone, you have to consider both the ups and the downs life will bring and choose a partner who will make every single moment worthwhile. You’ll never go wrong with a funny guy because a sense of humor will always be helpful. In the good times, you’ll have someone to laugh with forever. In the bad times, you’ll have someone to hold you while you cry and then make you smile again. After all, laughter really is the best medicine.
