'I love to kick back with my fella and throw on an episode of The Big Bang Theory, which we have both seen so many times before but we still laugh at it, most importantly-together.'

Of all the girls in the office, every one said that their man had to make them laugh or their relationship would suffer.

Lucy said:

'I love my partner's sense of humour, when things get serious, he lets out his childish side and it reminds me that we are just kids paying at a grown-ups game.'

Laughter is not only important in the initial stages of a relationship but also to maintain it through your entire life together.

Humour can dissipate any awkwardness and embarrassment in the initial dating stages but also acts as a device to keeps things alive in the latter stages of your partnership.

Just like a common interest, a good sex life and similar morals, humour binds a couple positively. Hearing anyone laugh can be contagious but hearing your partner laugh reaffirms that you still have that special way of getting to him, more than anyone else.

Humour can diffuse arguments, help you look on the bright side when things are not going to plan and gloss over any differences that you might have.

It allows you to be more creative because your playful side is also inventive and so you will have new experiences with one another, all spurred on by a bit of sniggering!
