Fact: Guys love funny girls.
Thing is, guys and girls often have different senses of humor. Just because guys love fart jokes doesn’t mean you do, so don’t feel the need to tell any. If you think something is funny, then go with it! Because that means it probably is, and if the guy doesn’t go for it, you’ll know you have less in common with him than you thought–and who wants to be with a bore?
Feel free to kid about anything you’re comfortable talking about in a more serious setting, too, because jokes often lead to conversations about their subjects. This means if you’re not comfortable talking about sex, don’t make a sex joke–he can tell if it makes you feel awkward, and that’s something you want to avoid.
One caveat to humor on dates: Avoid the self-deprecating jokes we discussed before! Guys dig humor, but they love confidence, too, so you don’t want him to think you’re fishing for compliments–because that’s totes lame. In the early stages, you only want him to see you at your most awesome.
