Laughing is the medicine of the soul. So, it’s no surprise when women say that they’re more attracted to funny guys. However, cracking jokes is hard when your only medium is the blank “About Me” sections. Creating a funny dating profile might not be easy, but it’s also far from impossible.
Associate professor Jeffrey Hall from the University of Kansas has conducted a study on the correlation between sexual selection and humor. In an interview with the online magazine Healthline, Hall says that when men are being funny, they advertise their intelligence. So, coming up with a clever way to say something shows more than just your joking skills.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a funny person in nature. What matters is your willingness to learn and try. Your positive attitude will help you crack a joke as a professional comedian. Well, maybe not exactly as a professional, but it will help you catch the attention of your potential partners. And isn’t that what you’re aiming for?
We’ve partnered up with the experts from datingadvisors.co.uk on how to create a balanced, attractive, and funny online dating profile, which will increase your chances of matching with your favorite users.
Funny Dating Profiles
When you’re setting up your profile, there are a couple of features that you can use to make the women laugh. You can include funny profile pictures or spice up your bio with a couple of jokes and humorous quotes. The important thing is not to overdo it. There needs to be a good balance of sincerity and seriousness, as well as wittiness and humor. (Don’t be afraid to throw an emoji in where possible).

Funny Dating Quotes
These quotes can be used in combination with your agreement or disagreement with them. You’re also indirectly conveying your interest in specific comedians that you enjoy watching by posting a quote. It doesn’t only have to be a comedian. It can be any public figure that has come up with a funny one-liner for online dating.

“Every girl would always ask me how tall I was. You ladies are all a bunch of filthy height supremacists. Yeah? You over six feet? You over six feet? I felt bad. I felt like I had to come up with something. Well, no, but if it helps, I’m still growing as a person.”
“If a gorgeous GQ guy is what you want, then, by all means, go for it. But I’m gonna let you know right now, in the long run, a pretty man is gonna do nothing but lie to you, cheat on you, and break your heart. The worst thing that I’ll ever do is have dinner without you.”
When creating your profile, remember to always go for a subject you’re familiar with and find funny. The topics can range from sports events, astrology, tv shows, and song lyrics to real-life situations where something hilarious has happened to you.
Some dating apps help you build up your profile with prompts. Use the prompts to share a funny story if coming up with a joke seems too complicated for you.
Another strategy that you may use is uploading a funny picture. It can be a silly one with your friends or in a costume from a party. Or you can edit an existing holiday picture where you are standing next to an empty black silhouette. When you upload the photo, you can specify that you’re looking for a romantic partner to fill in the open silhouette spot. That shows both your ability to be funny and creative.
In any case, just keep experimenting with different funny pictures, quotes, or bios and see which dating profile examples work best for you. Follow our advice and the volume of matches will surely increase swiftly!
