Laughter, the best medicine

Laughter, they say, is the best medicine for the soul. ‘The Laughter Prescription,’ a study retrieved from the American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine reveals that:

Current research indicates that laughter has quantifiable positive physiologic benefits.

In his article 'Sexual Selection and Humor in Courtship: A Case for Warmth and Extroversion,' Jeffrey Hall, Ph.D., associate professor of communication studies at the University of Kansas, explores the topic holistically. Hall concluded that when strangers meet, the more times a man tries to be funny and the more times a woman laughs at those attempts, the more likely it is for the woman to be interested in dating.

Humour is a great icebreaker

When a guy knows how to make women laugh, he really does not have difficulty in initiating and sustaining a conversation. Studies have shown that a woman is most likely to feel more comfortable and open up more to a man who knows how to make her laugh or smile. Women are attracted to gentlemen who can make them feel great, and the funny guy knows how to put her in the right mood or cheer her up when she’s down.

So, if you want to become the ladies’ man, learn how to make her laugh, you may not be a comedian but at least try. If you are already funny, you have more chances of ending up with the most attractive women. It's time to shoot your shot kings, goodluck!
