Dating: Do men enjoy humor?

Ask any woman what traits she would like in a man, and I can imagine a sense of humor is mentioned a lot. Women love to laugh, so the man who knows how to bring joy and laughter to a woman is a virtual chick whisperer!

Do men feel the same way we do about the importance of humor in a mate? Some would argue that they do not. In fact, many have said that wit and humor can actually count against a woman to some men.

What is it about funny women that is so off putting, though? I seriously thought that a happy, fun, jovial woman would be appealing to a man who loves to laugh.

Are funny women sexy? One of my twitter friends asked, “Do men like women with a sense of humor?” and further, is there such a thing as too much humor?

Yep, Kimmie after review of your 2:02, I am certain that you suffer from chronic “Outtapockebetes”….you may need to go on “Domestication Therapy”, its an intense regimen of cooking, cleaning, and draws washing,1-2 weeks depending on the severity,. followed by 30 days of Timidity Training…when you want to get started.

Celisea – Exactly. I know how to conduct myself in any situation. There are times at work where I just chill and then there are times I need to let them know what I know and who is running my ship. I gets much respect.

Same with hubs. He can take me around his firm, his family, friends, any situation and I’m going to conduct myself accordingly. You can be social without acting a fool, like a know-it-all or like a ghetto idiot. And I’m not somebody that’s gonna blend into the walls either. Always a lady!

Nobody has had to “check me” past the age of 10.

Kimmie – I’m cracking up over here because I can just hear the force behind the post. Heck I think I moved my neck a time or two just reading. I totally agree. Honey folks are grown, getouttahere tombout the laws of nature. The laws of nature would be girl likes boy, boy likes girl…so forth and so on. Telling me to not be heard as to not embarrass you is not?? If you got a chick where that’s happening it just might be time for change but muzzling folks ain’t natural…lol Where dey do dat at?? That ain’t got nothing to do with nature…lol

jake – re your 1:36. I know I have a very aggressive personality and I may have mentioned on here before the running joke between my friends and i. said joke is that when I meet a man that tells me to shut up and I actually do it I’ll know I have met the man for me. the logic behind that is that the average man will have to hear my mouth about it but the one that checks me and I respect it, that’s what’s up.

Good Afternoon!

I luv women who have likes to laugh, even some that have a big laugh…

I guess some of the ladies have always been on point when situations have come up (Disco-Celisea) They are no past moments where you wish u would not have acted that way…

It may be more severe than originally thought, the most severe cases are accompanied by “Angelouisms”…I am Woman, Hear me Roar statements….

All I am saying is that there are places humor/comment wise that I will take it to when I’m with my girls that I won’t when I’m with my guy and his family/friends.

But yeah, er, um, no…he doesn’t need to and won’t get to check me. Our relationship doesn’t work that way.

As for comedians –
Martin Lawrence
Kevin Hart
Joe Claire
Sheryl Underwood
Sommore
Aziz Ansari
Kathy Griffin – (sometimes)
And a few others that I can’t think of their names right off the top of my head.

Elijah – It’s not about being “on point”….IMO and using it that way sounds and seems calculated. If I’m a lady…and I am…you can depend on me “behaving” for lack of a better term and acting accordingly. I already know, you don’t have to tell me. I can’t recall ever being with someone that didn’t know me and just appreciated me for who I am. They weren’t biting their nails and on eggshells afraid of what I might say or do. And yes, plenty plenty plenty of times I’ve been the gender in the minority…it was neither here nor there. Everything is everything.

Kevin Hart grates on my nerves. I too like Sheryl Underwood.

Blackfoote – Elijah resembles another past blogger. All someone need to say is that they cute or fine or have someone comment on your cute booty and he was on it and after you at that point. Maybe he’s a reincarnate…lololololol

Okay, I’m done, got a meeting a 3PM, I was just pulling on ya’ll pig tails a bit, but really, try not to be so offended when you hear a reference to a woman’s place, its not the negative that you think, and its revered by most men, you can hoot and holla all you want, it does exist, and you are there already or your placement is waiting on you to finish the final 30 days.

Disco-2:19, exactly

Celisea – The whole “in your place” thing reeks of sexism, racism, you have it with me. Can’t help it.

I remember the words of this executive at another company I worked for – “If it ain’t broke, break it”. He was not talking about changing things just to change them, but don’t be so complacent either.

I wear many hats as a woman, employee, wife, mother. I think I wear them all well. No confusion as to which one to wear when! :cool:

Elijah – you done been removed as celisea’s blog boo. so how does it feel to get dumped on live blog? in your next blog relationship what will you differently? for closure’s sake do you have any last words for celisea?

Kimmie – I’m all over your 2:32 :)

SCool – Do you ever watch Parks and Recreation? Aziz is funny as all get out on there, in fact everyone is!! That’s the kind of humor I love!

Martin Lawrence is and alway will be one of my favorites! I was watching Martin this past weekend. Still has me rolling!

Maybe I’m corny but I use to crack up watching Friends. I was laughing pretty hard watching Just Go With It…Jen Anniston and Adam Sandler. I like those kind of movies. Not so much Adam Sandler by himself though.

Chris Rock is another I like…most times.

I agree with C’s earlier post about you being funny. Some folks are just naturally that way, and a lot of your posts are just matter-of-fact, but funny!!

I like Sheryl when she is performing an entire act. On the radio and in sound bites, not as much.

Aziz is actually one of M’s fave comedians. He will be performing at The Tabernacle next Wednesday. I’m surprising M with tix to the show.

Never been into poetry and such, like Angelou. Don’t care much about Vanzant either, nor Jakes. Okay, just don’t read it or live by it.

Okay, take my AA Woman card, I know.

C – trust me when I say y’all’s comments won’t go to my head. if anything I know that mostly I’m just a mouthpiece. if my running off at the mouth can get someone to chuckle rather than whine about me hurting their feelings I say it’s all good.

I like *some* of Angelou’s work. But for the most part, I think that what I can write myself is just as good…or better.

As to all the other self-help/best self authors, I will read through their work sometimes and every now and then, I pick up something that is timely that I can apply. But that’s about it. Don’t stan for any of them.

“It might be a couple of other folks but he’s been removed as my blog boo”

C — So, does this mean you’re in the market for a new blog boo? Just so you know, I’m totally blog-packing. IJS… Also, I’m filthy blog-rich, not to mention devastatingly blog-handsome with blog-stamina like the Energizer Bunny. :lol:

Only because of SwissMocha’s upcoming arrival, I can’t get in the way.

ruminations: where exactly does water go when you drink it? what does it mean if each gulp goes right through you within a matter of minutes? is it possibly my reservoir is completely topped off? should i be doing something to use up what i’ve already ingested before drinking more?

don’t mind me. just wondering.

I never understood all hype around Maya Angelou and Iyanla (whatever her name) Vanzant alway seems to be sitting around talking about her issues and overcoming. I’m not knocking that but ain’t she suppose to be a mentor or something?

Celisea ~ never shake on the demise of a relationship. Once that grab your hand, they usually spin you around twisting your arm behind your back and pushing you into a wall whispering crap in your ear while you whince in pain. Then, they let you go glaring at you for not wanting them anymore….no hand shake, just run away.
