Much can be said about what attracts one person to another. Physique. Intellect. Kindness. And so on. All of those ingredients are important. But for me, what sends me over the top is a guy that can make me laugh. My first husband was one of the funniest men I’ve ever met. My current husband is also very funny in a completely different way (of course, honey, in case you are reading). And most of the men in my life have been extremely funny.
And here’s the thing: I think most women would agree about this. Laughter and humor may be more important that ANY of that other stuff. May be.
I don’t know if men consider it as important as we do. That’s something to think about.
I posed the question on Facebook. One woman said she likes a man who challenges her intellectually. Another one likes a man who is not afraid of doing dishes. I say yes to both of those things–but a big yes to laughter.
In the mean time, I’ve come up with a list of funny men that get my wheels turning–in more than one way.
Jerry Seinfeld. I spent every Thursday night with him for years. And yes, I want more.
Russel Brand. What a hottie. And a bit of a rebel. I totally dig his accent.
Nothing like a rebel baby.
Jon Stewart. The only man who can keep me up at night. (Other than my husband, of course.)
A young Gene Wilder.
Sexy, just plain sexy.
So cute, though he looks a bit naughty, wouldn’t you say? Grin.
And speaking of naughty, my very naughty SAFFRON NIGHTS is marked down to $1.99 on B &N and Apple. I’m celebrating by giving away 3 copies to commenters today who want their copies from either one of those places. Who are your favorite comics? What makes you laugh?
