On episode 19, Droll, we open up on the importance of humor and laughter in dating.
Funny is sexy for sure. A sense of humor can go a long way in our love life. It can melt a cold heart, disarm a tense situation, and break the ice when meeting the first time. A sense of humor can be part of a healthy relationship or it can get in the way of getting closer.
Abe Normal fills in as a guest co-host while our beloved Brooklyn Steele is out for this episode. Max is no longer on the date apps for now but is still talking to a guy he met online. Will they meet now that sheltering in place has ceased? Beau recounts camping, go-karts, hookups, and clowns. Abe and his girl start to venture out in Dallas again and encounter rowdy SMU students during their date.
Guest: Ursula Roach from Dallas is our guest dating guru.
Dating Book/Article Review: "Why Your Sense of Humor Is Crucial to Your Dating Success" from Psychology Today.
Call to Action: Many say that laughter is the best medicine. It can relieve stress, relax the body and it can even protect the heart. Laughter, and a sense of humor, is a double edge sword. Will we use it to be ourselves and connect with others by laughing, being vulnerable, and intimate? Or will we use our sense of humor to keep others and ourselves at a distance? The choice is yours.
“Give up being right. Instead radiate peace, harmony, love, and laughter from your heart.” -Deepak Chopra
