Women find naturally funny men more attractive.

Science explains women like to date men who can make them laugh—and women are genetically wired to find a sense of humor attractive. Women’s brains, according to a study, show greater activity when they are responding to humorous situations. A woman, according to The Daily Mail, will use a man’s ability to make them laugh, which has also been created through evolution, as a way to see how suitable of a partner or father he would be. The study included the brains of young girls and boys and had them watch funny videos and later used MRI scans to see how the brain reacted.
