a thought provoking conversation the ends in laughs =D
I like both.
Start with light humor; go deep if the date goes long enough.
Either would be fine. I mostly get women who talk about shoes or Jersey Shore.
I would always prefer the laugh. As it would break barriers and make us more comfortable. If someone making you laugh, that is positive indication that they are comfortable with you
First dates have to be fun! However, the fun should be genuine, if you're not naturally a fun person, faking it would be worse than spending the evening talking about a recently deceased uncle.<br />
When in doubt, be yourself and hope for the best.
Laugh for sure
Laughter ! I love humorous people, ones that can make you laugh but also take being the butt of a joke :D
Maybe I'm greedy but I'd hope for both. Found it often enough that I know it's possible.
I would rather be engaged in a thought provoking conversion, but that someone would probably become more of a discussion partner rather than a dating partner (which is better anyways).
