If You Can Make A Girl Laugh, You Can Make A Girl Laugh
Today’s post is loosely titled after the infamous Marilyn Monroe quote, which is as follows:
If you can make a girl laugh, you can make her do anything
Yesterday, one of my female friends posted this exact quote on her Twitter, and when I read it, I had to laugh myself. The comedy wasn’t in the quote, but rather, it was from where the quote came that made me chuckle.
I have made the girl who tweeted the Marilyn Monroe quote laugh nearly every time we talk. And not just laugh a little, laugh a lot. There have even been times where I made her laugh, and I wasn’t trying to make her laugh. She’s laughed at me. But guess what she’s not doing? Anything. Specifically, going out on a date with me.
Take that, Marilyn Monroe.
When I met this girl close to a year ago, I asked her out and she politely said she wasn’t interested because of some other things going on with her, but she was interested in being friends. I took the bait, figuring I’m closer to going out on a date with her as a friend than as an acquaintance. Months later, I tried to go out on a date with her again. Agreed, then canceled. Then, I tried one more time, she politely declined. I decided to ask her why. She gave me the most honest answer any person can give anyone for not dating them. She said I wasn’t her type. Today, we remain great friends, I’m no longer trying to date her, and of course, I still make her laugh.
I bring this woman up not to moan about how she never gave me a chance. It’s about how effective laughter can be and how effective laughter isn’t.
I consider myself a funny guy. I’m no comedian, but I have a fairly quick wit and have always prided myself on being able to get a few lols (the real lols) out of people. For as long as I can remember humor was my cologne; what I wore to get a woman’s attention and attraction to me, but as I have shown above, it’s worked with mixed results.
The fact is, if you can get a girl to laugh, you’re guaranteed some friendship, but you’re not guaranteed the panties. Even if a man makes a woman laugh so hard, she actually pees in her panties, some woman still won’t give them to him (hopefully he wouldn’t take them if she did). Yet some men swear if a woman laughs at his jokes, it means she will eventually scream at his thrusts.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t always work out so neatly. A woman still has to be attracted to the man who is making her laugh in order for anything to go down beyond a good joke session. So when Marilyn Monroe said “if you can make a girl laugh, you can make her do anything,” the “you” she was referring to was either a guy she liked who wasn’t funny or some poor schmuck who was funny but never had a chance with her. What he did have was a chance with some other girl in the future, and her advice was given to him to apply to some other woman who would also find him attractive or someone who liked the type he was. It was her way of saying, “Yeah, not interested, but hey, there’s a lot of other women who might be and if you meet one of them, make her laugh so she will do anything.”
Just because a man can make a woman weak from laughing, doesn’t mean she’s getting weak in the knees, so the next time a man hears a woman quoting Marilyn Monroe’s line about laughter, she’s talking to her man, not you, man.
