Topics You Joke About That Your Asian Lady May Like or Not
Most ladies like a man with a good sense of humour and your Asian lady is likely to be no different. However, it is important to recognise that we all have different tastes when it comes to humour and if you overstep the mark you may up end causing some offence. Rather than risk upsetting your Asian lady, you should think about the jokes that she is likely to enjoy and stick to telling these.
Don’t Embarrass Her
Embarrassing your Asian lady or indeed anyone to get a laugh is a big no-no in Asian culture. Anything that causes someone to lose face is not appreciated in Asia and is most definitely something that should be avoided.
Don’t Joke About Appearance
The way your Asian lady looks is something that is very important to her so as a general rule you should never make any jokes about her appearance, even if meant in a light-hearted or affectionate way – it just isn’t something that she will appreciate. She is also unlikely to enjoy anything that is overly offensive or crude – toilet humour is a definite no-no.
You May Be Sarcastic
Your Asian lady might enjoy ‘depressing irony’, which is humour that is often sarcastic and dark. For example, one of the most popular brands of tea in Asia pokes fun at people losing their ambition and their slogan is “achieved-absolutely-nothing black tea”, which is something lots of Asian people find hilarious.
Jokes She May Enjoy
Asian culture enjoys humour that is not over the top. So, for example, you will find that lots of comedians keep a straight face throughout their set – even when delivering those hard-punching, witty, one-liners. Most stand-up comedians will count it as a win if they can make their audience laugh without having to show any facial expression.
Your Asian lady is likely to have a liking for non-jokes too. These are jokes that are so bad that they are good – think of it as a bad dad joke!
In general, the Asian culture has a good sense of humour but they are also very respectful. This means that when telling jokes you should make sure it isn’t at the expense of someone else. She won’t appreciate anything that is offensive or crude, so best to stick to jokes that you know she is likely to find funny and non-offensive.
