Humor Indicates Interest


Humor may have evolved to play a key role in the initiation of new relationships and the monitoring of existing ones. That is, individuals who are interested in forming potential relationships and keeping ongoing ones – whether as friends, romantic partners, or colleagues – may use humor to assess potential or existing relationship strength. Using diverse methods – a survey, an online experiment, and behavioral observation, three studies examined this model in the domain of initial courtship.
