How important is being 'funny'?Watch
I don't consider myself as funny and I would like to know how much this would affect my relationship with a girl. I'm really academically motivated and I'm not really funny at all tbh. I'm one of the guys who smiles a lot, but don't really make others laugh. Well maybe small, tiny laugh, but not really those that will burst others into laughter.
I'm 17 and I have had a couple girls (maybe 5-6) being interested in me over the years, and I also kinda get told that I'm cute from girls.
Just character wise, I think I'm quite nice and caring, but when it comes to joking, I'm not really good at it. How much would this affect my relationship?
Funny + Money = Honeys.
Naah, I kid.
I'm reasonably funny, as long as he can laugh along with me he doesn't have to be 'funny'.
It's one of those weird terms, 'a funny guy'.
You don't even have to be 'funny' to make someone laugh. You don't need to be an undiscovered comedian, you don't even need to be witty.
It's another one of those terms that really don't mean anything.
If you spend ten minutes with a group of friends/people, you'll all chip in to the conversation and you'll all say something that gets a laugh off everyone else. Does that mean you're all 'funny guys' that girls seem to want?
Unless they seriously mean a guy (we all know at least one) who makes a 'joke' out of everything anyone says, which gets annoying very fast.
When I said I'm not funny, I wasn't saying that I'm always dead serious I was just saying that I'm not the comedian type. Whenever someone said they like a funny guy, I wasn't sure if they meant really laughing out loud or just small giggle.
I can of course small talk and all, but I was just wondering if being the class comedian is really necessary for a good or healthy relationship. Guess it's all fine
