“Ha ha ha! You’re so funny!”
“Funny, because you’re hot!”
According to a new study, women really ARE attracted to men with a sense-of-humor, because they think GOOD-LOOKING men are funny.
The study, from the University of Stirling in the UK, shows that women DO love a sense of humor, BUT they find attractive guys to be funnier than average or ugly looking guys.
According to the Wall Street Journal,
The researchers found that good-looking people–especially men–were rated as funnier when their comments were heard as part of a video rather than as audio alone–in other words, when the person speaking could be seen. Also, funniness was most strongly associated with attractiveness for short-term relationships, especially funniness in guys.
The Daily Mail adds,
This might be because wit may give off the impression of not being serious or willing to commit to a long-term relationship.
Being recorded on video also made a real difference. Men who were videoed were generally considered more amusing than those who only had their voices recorded and provided a photo of themselves.
So quick ladies — in the photo below, who’s funnier?
