I find myself picking friends that make me laugh and avoiding people that are negative. Therefore, when I look for a man to have a relationship with the same thing applies. Laughter makes everyone feel better, and I wouldn't want to be in a relationship with someone who didn't make me laugh. A man with a great sense of humor is incredibly sexy.

In my personal opinion it means a connection with someone and this makes one relaxed enough to "let your hair down" and have a great laugh...it also means the personalities appear compatible if someone makes another laugh...

Very true mrstewart, It usually means great minds think alike. Or birds of a feather will flock together. Or at times the dumb attract the fellow dumb.

I never thought of it like that! My husband and I have always laughed a lot and I think it makes the hard times easier...

On the other hand, not as many men have a requirement of "she has to make me laugh". How do we react when we do see it? That increases our level of anxiety, doesn't it? - "I know he expects me to make him laugh, how the heck do I do it?"

Then the OP's point becomes clearer - these kind of requirements increase nervousness and undue stress of someone who is expected to "perform". Those types of requirements that one gender can impose on the other and not the other way around, are unfair.

I've tried asking why that is, before. But I get a confused look. A part of me thinks maybe women don't know why that is. Maybe laughter makes the brain feel good, and can't be easily explained.

Anyway, if any of you can easily explain it, I'd like to hear it.
I have a feeling you have an easy smile and others find you funny...

Some things just come naturally. It is like chemistry; you either have it or you don't. You can't fake it. It is the same thing with the magic that some people have together...it is that they click. They find the same things funny and they make each other laugh. Then, no one has to perform; it just happens.

Yes, there is a natural ebb and flow to the couple...no expectations, just natural chemistry. Nothing can beat it!
