The Chronicles of Online Dating: Episode 2

If you tuned in to the last episode of The Chronicles of Online Dating, you'll know that we left off right before a weekend that might have contained a date...with a boy.

Missed it? Catch up here.

I will probably keep the details brief since said boy may or may not read this.

Suffice it to say that I DID have a date on Saturday and I had a really good time. Part of the evening was seeing the movie Parental Guidance. BTW, I definitely suggest seeing this. It was a great movie with an awesome message. It was also ridiculously funny.

Let me clue you in on a little something about online dating. Lots of men think they are hilarious. They say in their profiles that they are funny. They mention that humor is a huge part of their life and they love keeping the people around them in stitches.

Rarely, are these men actually funny. More often than not, "funny" seems to be a catch-all term for weird, awkward and slightly social stunted. Or, at least in my opinion. I find that men who describes themselves as "funny" tend to usually be the opposite of that.

Men that don't provide a lot of commentary on how funny they are, usually end up being the funniest ones. Why? Because they don't try too hard. They just speak and are naturally humorous. Dang, I love a witty man. Make me laugh and you've got me. Well, of course, laughter combined with copious amounts of chocolate and flowers. But laughter is the key.

I believe my sister said it best when she said that looks will fade but laughter will remain. Amen to that, y'all.

My date on Saturday night made me laugh out loud (for real) more than once. I'd say he falls into the latter category of the naturally witty men. He's so witty, as a matter of fact, that we have plans for another date this weekend. :)


  1. YAY! So exciting!
    When I went on the first date (from online) with my boyfriend, I said to myself "If he makes me laugh, then it's all good" and he did. We had such a great time...and a year and a half later, we're together and happy.
    I hope the 2nd date goes just as well, or better, than the first!!

  2. I appreciate a witty man too! And someone who will call me out on things! Good luck on date #2!!

  3. Yay for a second date! Wit and humor are very important in my book as well. And you are so right, many guys think they are funny, and they are so not. Good luck on date #2.

  4. Kakow!

    For real, humor and kindness are the top qualities for me. : )

  5. I've been with my husband for almost 14 years now and he still cracks me up! Actually, he makes me laugh more now than when we were first dating because he knows me so well. Humor is SO important!

  6. Wits can win me over any day too! It's true. Those that "claim" to be funny are usually trying too hard to be funny. Those that seem not-so-loud then suddenly hits a homerun comment are the real funny ones! :D
