Someone who is relatable because i am very playful and funny so i can bring that upfront anytime. But someone who is understandable is rare in this world these days and is hard to find. Sometimes in life we go through things and i know on the daily basis we have the individuals who just replies with: "Awh hope you feel better." or "Sorry to hear that". Someone who understands you will vibe with you and what you went through they have similar experiences and is willing to share with you about life twists and turns. Anyone can make you laugh but to have more encouraging words to say during a rough time or anytime makes a longer conversation and builds a stronger relationship.
Humor is really important. My boyfriend always knows exactly how to make me laugh or smile, and I love that about him. It's sexy and it makes our relationship super fun.
But if I had to choose between someone who can make me laugh and someone who can understand how I feel, I'd have to choose the latter. I can be sensitive and emotional at times, and it's hard for me to be with someone who is too blunt or tactless, or who can't understand where I'm coming from when I'm upset.
I can see why some would choose laughing instead of understanding... BUT - keep this in mind: this "someone" might not care about your emotions, this "someone" might simply be him/her-self and it wouldn't lead too far. I mean what if you actually need someone to understand you... Besides, if other person is able to understand how you feel, you'll have way deeper and stronger connection with that person.
