Friday Flirting: Make 'em Laugh

Don't be afraid to be funny. Men love men who have a great sense of humor and who are confident enough to show it off.

But there is more than just the appreciation of a good joke that makes a funny guy hot.

Funny guys can laugh at themselves. A naturally funny man will, not only be able to deliver a cracking one-liner, but will also demonstrate the seductive ability to laugh at himself.

Unlike your classically good-looking-with-not-much-up-in-the-way-of-brains guy, a funny guy knows he’s not perfect but uses his imperfections to reel you in, turning his insecurities into weapons of mass seduction to blow you away.

Funny guys are also great in bed. Well, that caught your attention!

We're not talking about getting sexy to jokes about three men walking into a bar, there is something sexy about being with someone who uses humor to make you feel relaxed and comfortable in the sack. But it's not all silly when it gets steamy; a funny guy is smart and clever and knows when to turn on the sensuality.

Some tips on attracting a guy with your humor. Because, to Naughty Bacchus, it's always about making that connection. Here's some things you could try when first meeting the guy you've been eyeing for a while:

  • Though this may not be the time for knock-knock jokes, don't be afraid to throw in a joke or two if the occasion is appropriate.
  • Show that you can laugh at yourself. No man wants someone who takes himself too seriously— showing that you can laugh at your own foibles will show not only that you have confidence, but that you're aware of your flaws. The man you want doesn't want a guy who is "too perfect." And, if your quirks are showing, this will make them feel more secure about themselves at first.

If your humor doesn't snag him, don't despair. Unfortunately, certain men will not be attracted to you no matter how hard you try. But don't sweat it—there are plenty of men out there. If the man you're seeking doesn't recognize your new confidence, looks, or conversational skills, then someone else will come along who will never want to leave your side.

  • Though you may try to attract a man with all your might, his heart may be taken. Even if he's not in a serious relationship, he may have had a recent heartbreak or could be pining for someone else, and there's nothing you can do to change that.
  • If you're rejected, play it off. There's no need for waterworks or angry text messaging if your crush doesn't reciprocate your feelings. Hang tough and the right guy will come along!
