The term ‘if you can make a girl laugh, you can make a girl do anything’ is thrown around a lot and I’d argue it’s with good reason. Of course, to be in a relationship with someone requires attraction but for something sustainable, will good looks and zero personality ever be enough?
For the skeptics, here are 9 reasons why being funny in a relationship is more important than being hot.
1. Laughter is good for you
Humour and laughter trigger healthy physical changes in the body. They strengthen your immune system, boost your energy, diminish pain and protect you from damaging effects of stress. So, if you’re after a partner who can inadvertently keep your health in check whilst providing constant entertainment, win win.
2. You always want to be around them
When I’ve dated purely for attraction, time spent together is limited at best and I’d always opt for things like the cinema where we could not talk and avoid awkward conversation. Whereas being with someone funny never gets boring, you want to listen to what they have to say all of the time and there isn’t anyone you’d rather spend your time with.
