Dating: No laughter, no love

It has been a long week, people. From earthquakes, hurricanes, sad and heartbreaking headlines, the one thing that really can be the best medicine is laughter. I’ll be honest, dudes with no sense of humor don’t fare well with me. I am pretty sure I’m not the bee’s knees for them, either.

I have this theory that people who lack a sense of humor probably have something to hide. I have no scientific evidence of this, mind you. I just don’t trust people that don’t laugh. Have you ever tried to go on a date with a humorless individual? It’s like sitting in the dentist’s chair, only not as messy.

Do you rank great sense of humor as an important thing or are you fine with being the comic relief in a relationship?

Have you ever been on a date with someone and you laughed the entire time?

Blog prize awarded to the funniest story/joke/comment of the day. You guys decide the winner.

We all can use a little humor these days, don’t you agree?

Happy FUN Friday everyone!

Having a sense of humor is a must in my relationships of any kind but not at the expense of another person though, even though it’s kind of hard to get around that sometimes. I don’t care for the dark humor or the ill fated satire either. Just good ol fashion jokes/comments and just the right dose because being with a jokester can really be a turn off too.

I’ve been on a date with a guy who had not one ounce of sense of humor, and yes Wise it was like being in the dentist chair minus the messy mess.

Good morning!!

I could post this with invisible ink because all know how I feel. Laughter is crucial for me. Can’t take life seriously all the time. You need to have a sense of humor simply to get “thru.” It’s especially cool when you can laugh at yourself. Being serious all the time can only lead to indigestion and a bad case of crankiness. Too many comical events are taken place in life for one to walk the plank of “stuck up” and not take notice. LAUGH, LAUGH, AND LAUGH SOME MORE….

I don’t get along very well with people that don’t have a sense of humor. A good sense of humor is definitely a requirement for whomever I am dating. I enjoy someone who can be silly and joke around, and my sense of humor tends to be on the sarcastic side. I like making puns and saying funny things. I tend to get along best with someone who enjoys the same. They also have to be able to be serious when needed though. Someone who jokes all the time is too much. They need to have a good balance.

Luckily I have met someone who is very similar to me in that regards and we get along wonderfully. Our humor is one of the many things we have in common. I love to laugh and to make others laugh. For me, humor is an important part of a relationship.

I’ll first start by saying Howdy Doody

I don’t even think I have to really answer the question for the bloggers that know me. I’m pretty certain you all know a sense of humor is a REQUIREMENT for me in dating because i’m simply a nutcase. I love it when a guy can be as witty as me and throw the jokes back. Some of my greatest memories consists of ones where me & whoever I was with at the time, laughed until we didn’t even breathe anymore…the laughs that leave you feeling like you just did 50 sit ups. Humor & the ability to laugh through some of life’s curveballs makes me who i am today.

Good morning all – now this is right up my alley. Laughter is essential. Especially if you can laugh at yourself. I think a woman with a goofy sense of humor is very attractive. It lightens the mood. It can defuse a tense situation. In a strange way it can even reveal the intellect of an individual.
I’m still waiting for my open mic night opportunity at the comedy club.

Good morning, all!

I’ll keep it brief, bc I am busier than a one-legged man in a butt kicking contest this morning. :)

To quote Charlie Chaplin (who paraphrased ee cummings) “A day without laughter is a day wasted.” Laughter and a witty, sometimes goofy sense of humor are essential for me. Being with someone who is super serious all the time, or who doesn’t get your jokes……yeah, that gets REAL old, REAL fast.

Oh To Be 12 Again…

A man was sitting on the edge of the bed, observing his wife, looking at herself in the mirror.
Since her birthday was not far off he asked what she’d like to have for her Birthday.

‘I’d like to be twelve again’, she replied, still looking in the mirror.

On the morning of her Birthday, he arose early, made her a nice big bowl of Coco Pops, and then took her to Alton Towers theme park.
What a day!

He put her on every ride in the park; the Death Slide, the Corkscrew, the Wall of Fear, the Screaming Monster Roller Coaster, everything there was.

Five hours later they staggered out of the theme park.

Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down.

He then took her to a Mc Donald’s where he ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a chocolate shake..

Then it was off to the cinema with popcorn, a huge Cola, and her favourite sweets……M&M’s.
What a fabulous adventure!
Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed exhausted.
He leaned over his wife with a big smile and lovingly asked, ‘Well Dear, what was it like being twelve again?’

Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed.
‘I meant my dress size, you retard!!!!’

The moral of the story: Even when a man is listening, he is gonna get it wrong.
Just to show you how open-minded I am

Morning folks,

Sense of humor…absolutely. I tend to be quick on the turn so most folks don’t know I have a very humorous side. Yep, I do. I can get down and laugh with the best of them. When folks do see me, they’re like you are so silly :) Celisea’s not all serious all the time. Just serious with folks who garner it.

Morning All, Happy Friday and all that!

I don’t care for people that don’t have a healthy sense of humor. Serious people have their place, but not in my personal life. And yes, there is a difference between one who is witty and one who is just silly and stupid. Those that put others down and then try to cover it up by saying they were joking.

But having quick wit, being able to laugh at oneself and not be a buzzkill is a must to be my mate and my friend. Just is.

2 guys went bear hunting. Driving out to the woods, when they were almost there, they passed a road sign that said ‘Bear Left’, so they turned around and went home.

They were out hunting the next weekend, and they came upon a beautiful blonde in a meadow. “You game?” they asked, to which she replied, “Sure!”. So they shot her.

How to Solve a MidLife Crisis

AFTER BEING MARRIED FOR 44 YEARS, I TOOK A CAREFUL LOOK AT MY WIFE ONE DAY AND SAID, “Darling, 44 YEARS AGO WE HAD A CHEAP APARTMENT, A CHEAP CAR, SLEPT ON A SOFA BED AND WATCHED A 10-INCH BLACK AND WHITE TV, BUT I GOT TO SLEEP EVERY NIGHT WITH A HOT 25-YEAR-OLD GIRL. NOW I HAVE A $500,000.00 HOME, A $45,000.00 CAR, NICE BIG BED AND PLASMA SCREEN TV, BUT I’M SLEEPING WITH A 65-YEAR-OLD WOMAN. IT SEEMS TO ME THAT YOU’RE NOT HOLDING UP YOUR SIDE OF THINGS.”
MY WIFE IS A VERY REASONABLE WOMAN. SHE TOLD ME TO GO OUT AND FIND A HOT 25-YEAR-OLD GAL, AND SHE WOULD MAKE SURE THAT I WOULD ONCE AGAIN BE LIVING IN A CHEAP APARTMENT, DRIVING A CHEAP CAR, SLEEPING ON A SOFA BED AND WATCHING A 10-INCH BLACK AND WHITE TV.

Run Report – regular route interrupted by having to make a call to APD about the vagrants who have taken up residence in the abandoned house right across the street from Washington High School. It totally creeps me out because the shrubs and weeds have overgrown to a point that you cannot see what it going on at that property. Being across from a school, that is not cool.

On Topic – yeah, no go if no humor.

I’ll do the one monkey joke: These guys are hunting monkeys with their dog. When they saw a monkey in the tree, they shot it, monkey falls to the ground and dog bites the monkey’s nutz. Every time they saw a monkey same procedure, until one time , the monkey didn’t fall because he was stuck in the limbs. So one guy goes up the tree to get the monkey but the guy falls to ground and the guy yelled SHOOT THE DOG!!
