Tip #1: Keep It Light-Hearted
You don’t need her to be laughing so much she feels like she’s with with a professional comedian. In fact, not being too funny will help you to recognise whether or not she likes you. This is because a girl who likes you should want to laugh. So you’ll be able to get a better idea of how she feels if your jokes are simply light-hearted, rather than absolutely hilarious.
Tip #2: Play to your strengths
You know what your own ‘comedic’ strengths are. They might be the quirky ideas or talking about a particular subject matter. Superheroes or politics? Whatever it is, pick questions that you can follow up on.
Tip #3: Relax
These questions only work if they appear to be spontaneous and relaxed. So don’t try to hard. Not only will she pick up on it, you need to enjoy the experience yourself.
Tip #4: Read the room
Different types of questions might suit different people and moments. For example, posing an ‘either/or’ question to a girl who doesn’t talk or is nervous could lead to a dead end. In these cases, you’d likely be better off asking an open-ended question.
Tip #5: Play with your delivery
The delivery of a joke is the way that you express it. Sometimes, a manner that is dry and deadpan will work like a charm. Other times a cheeky or enthusiastic style will get more of a reaction from the audience. Read the room and play with what works. And remember, most importantly, have fun.
