#1 priority is kindness. A kind girl will laugh at your jokes even if they aren't funny.
A sense of humour is a bit lower on the totem pole, because female humour often involves sarcasm and I hate sarcasm.
What do you prefer, sight gags?
If it's not funny, I don't laugh. I enjoy the ackward silence. <------ sarcasm.
Seriously though, I would prefer kindness as well; someone who is good natured and easy going.
Probably in the middle for me. I find that traits like intelligence and common sense are a higher priority, as well as ambition (a decent job) and respect. I wouldn't want to date a man who had no sense of humor, though. I tend to tease a lot.. a sense of humor is needed for that.
Well, according to Cosmopolitan* magazine's surveys (an unimpeachable source, of course), the top three things women want in a man are, in order of importance:
1. a sense of humour
3. good looks.
But somehow I can't help thinking that if you've got #2 and #3, your stupid jokes are going to be a lot funnier.
*What a dreadful rag that magazine is. Shed those unwanted brains! How to catch a man! How to be happy without a man! 27 sex moves that'll blow his mind and make him beg for more! It's not that complicated, ladies. Just show up and get naked.
