All about the funny

If you can make a girl laugh - you can make her do anything. Marilyn Monroe

Laughing is a good thing in a relationship - laughing with them of course, not at them. Mix that with cute, tall, and Conservative and you have a keeper.
In an article in today's Seattle Times:

this is said about having The Funny:
A compatible sense of humor can move people past more superficial expectations for a partner, said Janet Siroto, a spokeswoman for dating Web site Match.com. Women are more willing to overlook deal breakers like age if the guy proves witty enough.
I totally agree for some items but I have a few dealbreakers that I won't change no matter how funny a guy is: can't be shorter than me or liberal or smoke or have a crazy family. One guy I dated a while back was exactly my height, not that cute but was really funny. Funny can make up for a lot of shortcomings.
