When you’re dating someone, you should always be able to laugh. After all, isn’t laughter the best medicine? Now, say you meet a new guy, and you go on a series of date nights with him. You realize he cracks a lot of jokes, and you’re laughing along. You got yourself a funny guy! However, you may need to know a few things before you continue dating him. Cupid is here to help with some dating advice:

These pieces of advice will help you when you’re dating a funny guy!

1. You may have to get used to him: A sense of humor can depend on the guy you’re dating. Is he more sarcastic? Is he good with puns? The more you keep dating him, the more you’ll adapt to his humor. And who knows? Maybe you’ll even catch the same humor, and you’ll be cracking your own jokes!

2. Not every joke is a joke: Humor hides emotions sometimes. Guys don’t always joke around because they’re trying to be funny. There may be an underlying problem, and they’re covering it up by inducing laughter. But have no fear, just communicate with him and everything will be fine! You’ll know when there’s a difference between humor and sorrow.

3. He will make your day better: Rough day? Your guy will be sure to make you smile with some corny joke that he was saving for that moment. When you want to talk, he will be serious enough to listen, but know when it’s the right time to make you laugh.

4. They aren’t titled as the “funny guy”: Just because they are funny doesn’t mean their new identity when being introduced to people is the “funny one.” They don’t like being labeled just as much as anyone. They may be funny, but they don’t have a sense of humor when it comes to that title!

5. They can be serious: A funny guy knows when it’s time to be serious and when it’s time to be funny. He can’t crack a joke during a tragic event and expect to receive good feedback from that. He should have the right judgement on when it’s time to be serious.
