Humor plays an important role in all types of relationships. In new relationships, it can be an effective tool for bonding and overcoming any awkwardness or embarrassment. In established relationships, it can keep the excitement going and can help resolve past conflicts, disagreements and small details that can build up over time. Sharing the pleasure of humor creates a sense of intimacy and connection between people. These qualities define successful relationships. When you laugh with each other you create a positive bond between the two of you. This bond acts as a buffer against stress, disagreements, disappointments and negative patches that build up in a relationship.

In fact, humor can help form a stronger bond with other people. Health and happiness depend, to a large extent, on the quality of relationships. And laughter brings people together. It also serves to smooth over differences and dissipate tensions. For, using it often helps to deal with even the most sensitive issues. Moreover, a well-timed joke can help ease a tense situation and help resolve disagreements and petty conflicts. It can even help overcome problems and setbacks and put things in perspective. It is the key to resilience, as it helps to take difficulties in stride. Most situations are not so bleak if you look at them from a playful and humorous point of view.

In that sense, it could reframe problems that might otherwise seem overwhelming. It is worth noting that it helps us to be more creative. It energizes thinking and can inspire creative solutions to problems among people. Humor provides an outlet for the expression of taboo thinking, especially on issues related to sex and violence. These are natural needs and tendencies that have to be socially regulated, but total suppression is unrealistic. In the same way that watching or participating in a boxing match offers a socially acceptable outlet for aggressive impulses, humor is a form of controlled release of impulses that are a potential threat to civilized society.

In the same vein, when people laugh at the jokes of others they are affirming common values or prejudices, sharing attitudes or validating their hostilities. The recognition that other people think in the same way as ourselves and share our problems and experiences is an important source of humorous pleasure. At the same time, the victimization aspect of humor is one reason why it can easily become offensive. Although it can also be a way of bringing group members closer together on a level compatible with group norms. By laughing at things that scare us we feel that we have them under control and that they are less threatening.

Finally, black humor or jokes about disasters function as a defense mechanism. Here fits very well the figure of self-deprecation or laughing at oneself, which can also be adaptive in the same way. Humor can be primarily intellectual. It gives us momentary freedom from the tyranny of logical thinking. Humor allows us to escape the confines of reality and enjoy our capacity for originality and creativity. When we laugh we gain numerous benefits, radiating positive energy and a sense of well-being around us. It is true that there are many conditioning factors that cause sadness, but it is very beneficial to enhance our moments of laughter.

I like people with a good sense of humor too. I just don't like it if their jokes are below the belt already.
