Paige Spiranac thinks humor is the key to successfully sliding into a woman’s direct messages.

Guys often debate the best strategy for messaging women they don’t know on social media. Do you try to be bold? Do you play it safe? What do you say? Well, the golfer and model thinks humor is probably your best bet.(SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)

Spiranac recently said the following during an appearance on the “How Men Think with Brooks Laich & Gavin DeGraw” podcast, according to the New York Post:

So first you have to follow the person and then you like, I would say about three to five pictures, usually in a row so they can see your name pop up and after you do that, normally that person will then DM you and they’ll just be like, ‘Hey, what’s going on?’ But if they don’t do that, then I would normally just say something funny…I hate when someone will just send, ‘Hey,’ or ‘How are you,’ ‘What’s up.’ I want to laugh, I want to be entertained, I want to have a connection from the very start, to start a conversation.

It’s kind of hard to disagree with Spiranac’s advice. Now, I usually just ask a woman if she wants 15 very regrettable seconds of intimacy, but we all have different strategies. (SLIDESHOW: 142 Times Josephine Skriver Barely Wore Anything)

When that always inevitably fails (props to me for at least being open and honest), I guess we can move on to humor. Whatever works is worth giving a shot. (SLIDESHOW: 71 Times Samantha Hoopes Stripped Down)

In all seriousness, this isn’t a shockingly difficult concept to understand. Women like guys who are funny and self-aware.

You might disagree, but I have hours of stories that would prove Spiranac correct. They’re not my stories, but you know, I’ve heard them through the grapevine.

If you can make a woman laugh, at the very least you’re opening up a door. Once that door gets cracked open, all bets are off.

Try humor. If that fails, then I suggest being rich as all hell because that also seems to help get you women, or so I’ve heard. As a working class man, I wouldn’t know myself.
