Knowing how to make a woman laugh is a great way to make her like you. But making her laugh at you instead of with you isn't going to turn things in your favor. Think about it - if you keep making her laugh at your own expense, what'll happen when you run out of jokes, and you suddenly turn serious? Exactly - she'll think, "Whoa, what happened to him?"
Self-depreciating humor is a great way to make women laugh, but it's also a great way to make her look at you as nothing more than a goofy friend. You're basically shooting yourself in the foot if you think you can get her attracted to you this way. So do you make her laugh in a way that would make her like you in a special way?
Simple - be funny in a way that no one else is. A lot of men these days grow up with the idea that playing by the rules and being a gentleman is the only way to get women to like them. This is obviously a dead-end belief. After all, if every man acted this way, women would get tired of meeting men who are exact carbon copies of the men they met yesterday.
Here's the key. When you mix funny with being playfully arrogant, you immediately exude a personality that women don't get to see everyday. It's a personality that says that you have your act together, you know where you are, and you play by your own rules. Show her that she can't boss you around, and that you're the opportunity here.
For instance, if you find her a bit annoying, don't say the following:
"You know, you're cute when you're annoying." (Too wussy.)
"Stop acting like a little girl. It's annoying." (Too arrogant.)
"..." (Saying nothing is too boring!)
Instead, try teasing her this way:
"If you keep acting bratty, I might have to spank you."
She just might laugh and reply with, "Oooh, be careful. I might like that." If she does, then you can pretty much bet you're doing the right thing.
The bottom line is that women are attracted to men who are aggressive and take the lead. If you can show that you're confident enough to play by the rules and even make fun of her during the date, she'll naturally find you interesting and attractive. Keep it up, and she'll soon want you all to herself.
