Women Are More Attractive When They Have a Sarcastic or Juvenile Sense of Humor
Supposedly the first thing single people look for in another person is a sense of humor. So apparently hot girls and rich guys are much funnier than the rest of us.
Anyway, eHarmony ran a major survey to figure out what styles of humor are most attractive to the opposite sex. And it's pretty simple: Men are better off with dry, sarcastic senses of humor . . . and women are better off making fart jokes.
The study found that men are 7% more attractive when they're sarcastic . . . 16% more attractive when they're dry . . . and 6% more attractive when they're ironic.
For women, JUVENILE humor added 7% attractiveness . . . sarcasm added 14% . . . geekiness added 5% . . . and being dirty and raw added 4%.
Now, as for what kinds of jokes make people UNATTRACTIVE . . .
For men, dark humor makes you 14% less attractive . . . being dirty and raw knocks you down 9% . . . and practical jokes also knock you down 9%.
For women, POLITICAL humor makes you 12% less attractive . . . practical jokes make you 9% less . . . and being ironic knocks you down 4%.
