Humor is the way to your crush's heart

How you ever wanted to be a funny person? You know that person that makes people laugh, that make them pay attention? That's not an easy thing to do because you have to walk a thin line between being funny and being a clown. That takes relevance when you're trying to capture the attention of your crush. Using humor to make him or her like you is a good idea, it actually is one quality that's appreciated and look for in a partner.

Being funny is great but it's much more than making a person laugh. Anyone can tell a joke or do something silly but humor goes beyond that, it is the ability to be able to tell jokes and extract laughs from the people around you without embarrassing yourself. The line is thick and you have to tread carefully because if you fail your crush may be compelled to ghost you. To make a good impression on your crush using humor, you'll have to be able to tell not just one joke but a string of them. That's how you become the funny guy or girl that everyone wants to hang with and that will make your crush pay attention to you.

We're going to help you with your joke's repertoire but before we do that we're going to tell you how you can use humor to win your crush's heart.

Make jokes about what's around you

Look around you and observe what's happening, how people interact. Pay special attention if something weird or funny is going around and incorporate it into the type of humor you're trying to achieve. Maybe someone said or did something funny at work and you both were there to witness it. Turn toward your crush and turn that situation into humor by saying something as simple as Did that just happen? That could be the beginning of a bond.

Don't resort to bullying others to make your crush laugh

That's a rabbit hole you need to avoid at all costs. It's a thin line to cross and so easy to do but not acceptable if what you want is to win your crush's heart. Bringing others down so you can end on top is not cool and it will not get you your crush's respect. You'll achieve that by making your humor clever and witty not by basically being a jerk.

Share your own funny and weird stories

Take a trip down memory lane and remember all your blunders and mishaps and all the weird things that you have done or have happened to you and use them. By telling these hilarious stories about yourself you will be endearing yourself to your crush. Your crush will see another side of you, the funny and engaging side and that's a sure way to win their hearts.

Don't be a clown just to amuse your crush

You don't need to embarrass yourself to make your crush laugh or become the "class clown" just so he so she noticed you. This is so tempting because it can compel you to keep doing it and then it will be expected of you so that when you stop doing it, your crush will lose interest and you don't want that to happen. Think about what you say and do once you have your crush's attention. Be the funny one, not the class clown.
