How to Make a Woman Laugh -- Uncontrollably: 5 Ways to Make her Giggle (Jokes & Question)

Laughter is often known as the key to anyone’s heart. A man with ‘funny bones’ tends to leave a bigger impression than someone who takes themselves too seriously, and is a great indicator that they’re up for having a good time and are worth talking to. Laughing can have health benefits too, as the act of giggling releases endorphins to make us all feel good. Making your date laugh will help her associate these positive feelings with being in your company.

But if making a woman laugh doesn’t necessarily come naturally to you, we’ve got 5 steps you can follow to help make her giggle -- uncontrollably.

1. Tell her a funny joke

Telling a joke is the tried and tested way to get someone to laugh. But the trick here is to ensure your chosen cracker is genuinely funny or it’ll fall flat -- and she might not even want to see you again! You might not be a born comedian with an array of jokes at your disposal, so if that’s the case then give a couple of these jokes a go instead:

  • I’m never wrong! One time, I thought I was wrong, but I was mistaken!
  • I knew I was going bald when it was taking longer to wash my face.
  • I can’t believe how convenient online dating is. Now, my dream of finding love can be crushed more efficiently and in the privacy of my own home…

Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.

2. Be self deprecating

Self depreciation is defined as being able to laugh at and tease yourself about your own flaws. This shows you have a sense of humour and can help create a better connection between you and your other half. It can also give her the confidence to delve deeper into your personality, likes and dislikes. 

To get started, try gently mocking your own appearance (like your haircut or outfit choices) or pick out some flaws you feel you have -- like what films and music you’re into -- and offer them up in a funny way to try and get a reaction from your date. You never know -- you might even get a compliment out of it.

3. Tease her (gently)

Once you’ve mastered the art of self depreciation, try a bit of gentle teasing to further show her you’ve got a great personality. Just be careful not to take it too far, or she could get offended or upset. You want to keep her coming back for more, so use the gentle teasing to test the waters first and to let her know you’re genuinely interested in her. By teasing, you should be aiming to compliment her but in a not-too-direct way so she’s not scared off. 

Try using these examples to help get you started:

  • Point out something about her appearance you like but she might not, for example “your freckles are really cute”.
  • Pretend you won’t get along if you disagree about something, like a film or song. 
  • Tease her taste in food or drink if it’s not something you’d consume yourself.

We don’t laugh because we’re happy – we’re happy because we laugh.

4. Send her funny texts

Texting is a great way to show someone you’re thinking about them when they least expect it. Whether it’s first thing in the morning or last thing at night, drop her a funny text to give her a little smile. She’ll love the surprise, and will really appreciate you for taking the time and effort to drop in on her. A funny meme, video or gif is a great place to start and is the perfect way to begin a conversation. Or ask her a funny question to get the ball rolling instead. 

Laughter is an instant vacation.

Chances are in your lifetime, you’ve gathered a funny story or two that could turn out to be a real crowd pleaser. Telling a funny story could encourage her to do the same and is a great chance to find out if your sense of humour is compatible. 

Try to keep your stories clean -- you don’t want to scare her off too early. Plus, you can save the more fruity stories for when you get to know each other better.
