I'm ready to meet a guy I can have fun with and joke around and just enjoy their company, BUT I have no clue what guys like. Anything helps!

Answers will vary, as we teachers like to say.
Here goes. First of all, I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that physical appearance is important. In a perfect world, in heaven, in Candyland, perhaps looks don't matter. On planet earth, alas, they do. I am the first to admit this is not fair, but I'm darned if I know how to end it. Now the good news. If that's you in the picture, you needn't worry about that.
BE INTERESTING. Now, usually the most interesting people are passionate about many things. Notice I didn't say passionate about *something*. People who are passionate about one thing are often not particularly interesting. Cultivate intelligence, competence, and interests in several things. Try and meet guys who are passionate about similar things. I've grown increasingly skeptical of the idea that opposites attract. Often times they don't. Be friendly and open. That smile you are flashing (assuming that's you) is quite a weapon in your arsenal. Use it. It makes you look friendly and open to people. Be polite. You can be polite and assertive, if that's your game, but be polite. Understand some men are pigs, but don't go down the path of thinking all men are pigs. They're human, with strengths and weaknesses. Does Princess Jasmine exist? No. So don't think Prince Charming does either (or Edward Cullen... or that shirtless werewolf). Be sure you pick a man who respects your boundaries and take that very seriously. At the same time, don't toss him out if he flubs his lines on the first date.1
