No sh*t, Sherlock?!

I've always found it odd when people say this. I see women on dating apps include this on their profiles all the time. "I love to laugh!" Okay, so your point is...

You're a normal human being?

You're mentally stable?

Saying "I love to laugh" is like saying "I breathe oxygen." I literally have never met a single person who doesn't love to laugh. We all have a different sense of humor and find some things funny and some things not, but who doesn't love to laugh? Is there anyone in the world who hates laughing and prefers crying?

Sometimes I want to reply to these people and say, "Wow, that's so crazy! I'd much rather be depressed and cry all the time."

Well maybe.. but the whole point of any dating site is that you are in a way selling yourself, advertising your wares.. and I guess their thinking was that they want to show they are a fun person, not serious, not a misery.. They want to sound appealing.

I get that it's a pet peeve but try to go easy on them.. everyone there is trying to do their best.

[@1102251,RopinTexan] well that's your thinking for sure.. but think of it this way... not every lady IS fun loving and able to laugh at herself and the world.. Wouldn't you rather know she was someone who is able to laugh?

[@7167,Adaydreambeliever] I suppose. I've never met any of these humorless women though. I guess they must exist though.

[@1102251,RopinTexan] Believe me they exist... just as do humourless men

I think it's more to show that a sense of humour is important for them in a romantic partner. Granted, humour is subjective, but you get some people with no real wit or charm.

[@23671,basilfawlty89] Thankfully, I've never met any of these women. Even my horrible ex had a good sense of humor; that's one of the reasons I was attracted to her.

[@970756,MarkS] Ha! I've seen a couple of them, but they aren't that common. All these new so-called "sexual orientations" are getting a bit ridiculous. Before you know it, there will be a special word for people who are attracted to blondes...maybe "blondosexual?" :P

[@1102251,RopinTexan] I’d love a word to describe a boob man, bc I would use it to describe myself . Mammarist maybe?

[@970756,MarkS] Mammarist, I like that! 😂 I'm more of a buttockist (or analist?) myself.

Although "analist" sounds too much like "analyst" though, which is a totally different thing...
