Why Love Jokes Are Actually Good for You

Not only is laughter a great way to boost your mood and reduce stress, but it can also help solidify your bond with someone special. A 2015 study published in the journal Personal Relationships identified laughter as an indicator of relationship well-being. According to the authors, the behavior is associated with key relational benefits, including "greater closeness and social support."

It isn't only partnered individuals who can benefit from sharing a laugh about love, either. Humor has long been celebrated as an effective communication tool. And finding funny ways to discuss the complexities of modern dating has been a welcome development for single people around the world.

These little quips have even made their way into the pop culture zeitgeist, bringing with them brand new ways of talking about love and relationships. Storytelling and standup specials like Fieldling Endlow's Gaslighting Is My Love LanguageJen Kirkman's I'm Gonna Die Alone (And I Feel Fine), and Joel Kim Booster's Psychosexual are just a few of the laugh-till-you-cry meditations on romance (and the lack of it) that have entertained audiences in recent years. While the list of jokes below won't exactly equip you to headline your own, we do guarantee a chuckle or two.
