Love—it can be a rather fickle thing. And some people just can’t seem to find it anywhere. That’s why the dating app trend has been so wonderful for many people.

Having a completely personalized profile where everything is out on the table has a lot of advantages. But how do you make sure you stand out? Maybe you joined a dating app one day because you were bored. Maybe you decided enough is enough and you need someone in your life.

Either way, you may still face the struggle of finding compatible matches. You may be asking yourself,

“What can I do to get matches and stand out?”

We’ll show you how using a little humor can make you stand out among the other fish in the sea!

Being Funny Makes You More Attractive

Are you a naturally funny person? Do you have a niche for making people laugh? Do you effectively use humor as a self-defense mechanism when people get too close too fast? Well, you just may be on your way to finding love on a dating app.

Humor is an effective way to enhance relationships. People with complementary senses of humor are naturally drawn together. Some couples find humor from their favorite shows—others find it in how many Gerber life insurance advertisements they have received in the mail.

It’s no secret that good humor makes for good relationships.

According to Jeffrey A. Hall from the University of Kansas:

“The humor that couples create together matters more than having a sense of humor that people outside the relationship would call funny”

When you’re able to find someone that shares your sense of humor, it creates a stepping stone for a great relationship. When you’re able to come together as a couple, make jokes, and be funny in your own, collective way, you share a connection unlike any other.

Let’s take a look at how you can add humor to your dating profile and attract matches.

Finding Love Through Humor on Dating Apps

Using dating apps to find love is an ever-growing trend in today’s society. I know many people that have met up and found love on apps like Bumble, Hinge, and even Tinder.

Of course, in order to find love through humor on dating apps, you need to put a little bit of effort into your profile. This won’t necessarily require hours of work or talking to a relationship therapist, but it will require some creativity.

Bring on the Memes

No doubt about it, almost everyone memes. Memes are a great way to add a chuckle to your dating profile. And by sharing memes you find interesting, you can attract the perfect match.

Best of all, memes offer a great conversation starter. You may have a match already that wants to start a conversation but doesn’t know how.

There are memes for just about anything, from lawn care to dancing. It doesn’t matter where your interests or humor lie, there’s a meme for it.

Maybe you’re trying to attract a match in jail—good news for you, there are jail memes too!

By adding a meme to your dating profile, you add a bit of humor, and you offer a conversation starter for interested matches.

Just to be clear, you probably want to include more than just memes as your profile picture. Always remember, people still want to learn about you! So don’t forget to share about yourself as well. A nice photo of your face is always the best choice for a profile photo.

Know What You Want, and Your Audience

Finding love is similar to finding the right life insurance provider for you. You will likely have to search through a few different profiles until you find the perfect fit. That’s why it’s important to know what you want in a match.

When you have a general idea of the type of person you’re looking to match with, you’re able to tailor your profile to that person.

It’s important to remember having a detailed list of attributes that you want in your future partner may not be the way to go.  Sorry to put a damper on your dreams.

You probably won’t be able to find someone who cooks, cleans, and speaks 3 languages full-time all while being the main breadwinner of the home. Keep in mind that unreal expectations can be an intimidating turn-off.

Always Be Yourself

Here’s the deal—knowing what you want in a match is a great place to start. Understanding how to tailor your profile to what you want is another wonderful tip to include. But, you have to make sure you don’t over-tailor your profile.

You still need to be yourself!

If you think your personal details listed on your profile are boring by themselves, spice them up with some humor!

Maybe include a pun or two in your dating profile if you enjoy those. You can even include a picture of yourself doing something quirky if you want. The whole idea of a dating profile is for you to be yourself. So find a mixture of funny and factual that works for you.

Use Your Humor and Have Patience When Looking for Love

Finding love can be extremely difficult. Whether you’re on a dating app or not, it’s reality.

If you’re someone who loves to use humor to connect with people, using humor on your dating profile can be a great move for you. Some people may not like it, but when you find the person who does, you’ll likely connect with them on a whole new level.

And next thing you know, you’ll be getting married, creating new humor with your significant other, and doing more mundane responsible things like searching for ways to save money on life insurance together. In all honesty, that’s a great ending to any love story.
