You like what you see? You want to get to know her better, but history has proven that your luck isn't that good. You should try some humor.

But according to Men's Health, there is a catch...don't try so hard. The more you try for laughs, the fewer you receive. Theresa DiDonato, Ph.D., an assistant professor of psychology at Loyola University Maryland, suggests building off something you have in common, such as a hot topic in the news or an event you both just witnessed.

But if you just saw the bartender spill a drink, resist the urge to turn him into a punch line.

"The best flirtation strategy is affiliative humor which is warm, low key, playful joying rather than mean spirited quips."

Not only is laughter the best medicine, it's also the best way to meet the person of your dreams.
