Strategy #1: Tell Jokes

So easy it's almost cheating, in the era of dad jokes everyone can be funny online. The trick to making girls laugh with jokes is to learn a handful of good jokes but put a twist on them that makes them your own. That can mean anything from adjusting the topic to making it personal thanks to your unique delivery.

In fact, if your delivery can be unique, you can even tell a joke she's heard before and still get a laugh — because you're telling the joke in a way only you can tell it.

strategy 2 tell funny stories

Strategy #2: Tell Funny Stories

Tinder get more matches

If traditional jokes aren't your style, you can still make a girl laugh by telling a funny story. A good funny story doesn't depend on formulas or punch lines, instead, it's the content combined with your delivery that will make the story land right and make her laugh.

One technique can be telling a story that defies expectations. Tell a story with twists and turns, that leads to surprising outcomes. Leave her guessing about what's going to happen next. Sometimes surprise alone is enough to get a laugh.

Another technique can be making a story funny with your delivery. If you're talking in real life you can do this by acting out the story, or doing the voices, but over text you can get some of that same energy across — use emojis, gifs, and memes to get some of the emotion across, and tell the story using dialog for the people involved.

strategy 3 build off things shes saying

Strategy #3: Build Off Things She's Saying

It's important that your attempt to make the cute girl laugh doesn't come across like you're following a script, or simply copy-pasting memorized lines. One way to do this is to show off your ability to be funny on the fly — by building on things she's saying. That will prove that you're paying attention and that you're being original.

How do you do that? Here are a few things to try:

Intentionally misunderstand something she's said

Want to make her laugh? You can do a whole bit by twisting around something she's said. Make sure you're not being mean about it, but instead just taking something and running with it. Maybe taking something too literally (she says she's so hungry she could eat a whole cow, and you take that at face value) or you find other ways to jump to silly conclusions and go from there.

The trick to making this style work is making sure it's done in fun, and that she's entertained, not annoyed.

Create inside jokes

Just about anything that you fixate on and say often enough can become an inside joke over time. It's just something that's special for the two of you. Maybe on your first date she said something about ordering dessert before dinner — grab that and run with it.

Any time you're making plans you can propose root beer floats or banana splits. The more absurd the better. Over time, the inside jokes become your thing. Heck, maybe you'll end up celebrating your anniversary with an ice cream feast.

strategy 4 send funny things found elsewhere

Strategy #4: Send Funny Things Found Elsewhere

Do this before reseting

Listen, not everyone is naturally funny, and that's okay. If you can't come up with the laughs on your own, you can still show off your sense of humor by curating the best of the internet for her benefit. From a funny video to a silly meme, tickle her funny bone while other people do the heavy lifting for you.

If you can add commentary that makes it even funnier, that's great. But you can make a woman laugh by sending something hilarious and adding no text at all, or by making a dry remark like, "presented without comment."

If you need inspiration, check out leading news sites. Especially on slow news days you can generally find one or two headlines there for a laugh. You can also scroll through sites like Reddit for what's getting people's attention on any given day. This is a good way to make sure you never run out of things to say as there is always something to share.

strategy 5 keep her guessing

Strategy #5: Keep Her Guessing

As we mentioned above, sometimes a good surprise is all it takes to make a girl laugh over text. So be unpredictable. Suggest things out of the blue or turn typical cliche's on their head. This kind of humor can be in the so wrong it's right category — and that also means it can go just plain wrong. So save this for when you know the person a little better, and can predict what will make them laugh or smile.

You can also do this by saying normal things in a funny way or by putting your own personal spin on things. Ultimately, being surprising is one of the best ways to make your crush laugh.

If something off the wall ends up hitting her funny bone in the right way, this can also be an opportunity for an ongoing inside joke that will make the girl laugh over and over again!

Small aside. Did you know it is possible to make your profile more attractive in 2 minutes and get more matches every day?

Thanks to our Artificial Intelligence trained on 10,000+ pictures rated by hot girls, you will be able to access personalized feedback and tips to boost your dating profile for good.

You will know exactly which pictures are good or not, and most importantly why.

So, what are you waiting for to take charge of your dating life?

strategy 6 dark humor

Strategy #6: Dark Humor

Another technique for people who don't go for typical jokes, if you — or your girl — has a darker sense of humor, there's a whole world of potential. From sending a funny text about global warming to plotting the perfect crime, dark humor can save you if the person you're talking to doesn't want to hear a typical joke.

Sharing a dark sense of humor is a beautiful thing, and if you really hit it off in this area that can be a sign that you're soul mates! She's someone to hang on to.

If you want to get the girl to like you, you need to make the girl laugh! Luckily, there are a lot of ways to do that, as you've seen above. With online dating, you might not be able to rely on love at first sight, but you can get pretty close with witty text messages.

Once you're with someone for a while, and you get to know the person, making them laugh gets easier. You'll end up in relationships with people who share your sense of humor, and making your girlfriend laugh is easier than getting a laugh from a girl you just met a day ago — let alone an hour ago.

Use your text messages to show off your quick wit, and before you know it, she won't be able to wait to talk to you. If you can make her laugh it might not make her fall in love, but a good sense of humor can make people fall in like. Make sure to check out this Tinder texting guide to know how to keep a conversation flowing.

And if your jokes just aren't working? Don't worry. Not everyone is the right fit, and life is too short to spend time on people who just aren't a good fit for you.
