Because love is funny-strange, but it’s also funny ha-ha.
We’ve all heard that love is patient and love is kind, but have you ever thought about how hilariously funny love and romantic relationships can be as well?
That’s right. As any stand up comic can tell you, love can bring a chuckle, giggle or a side-splitting laugh out of just about anyone you’ll meet.
When you’re in love, you are automatically having a good time.
You are with the person you adore the most, and anything you do with them brings a smile to your face, even when they’re annoying you worse than anyone has before!
So naturally, your dating and love life are sure to be full of some downright entertaining moments, and some of the common experiences we all share in loving another can best be summed up with short, funny jokes and love quotes about relationships from our favorite comedians and humorists.
Of course, there are also parts of love that don’t seem funny at first, but that you find yourself laughing about it later on.
Bad breakups, fights and misunderstandings may arise and put a strain on things. But once you are able to work through it with your partner, you’re also able to see the humor in the situation.
After all, life would be a lot less interesting if we didn’t operate that way. Could you imagine a humor-less society? Ugh. That would be horrible.
Thank heavens for comedians and their interesting outlook on everything that goes on in our world!
Being able to evaluate hard situations and find a sort of silver lining somewhere within it all is truly a gift. And it’s something we can all learn from, because it’s important to remember not to take everything too seriously. Life is a lot easier to take on when everything isn’t always so big and scary and you can chuckle at situations.
