Fun or funny???



Someone told me the other day - "U r obviously fun girl! but not so much funny!"

I wonder what's really the difference. Any idea guys??

Its a compliment--take it and say thanks!
Being funny means being weird.Being fun means being good company.

Yea may be that person thought it was fun hanging out with you but then when you started cursing, that person thought it was no longer funny LOL.

So yea, either way that thought of you being funny is what is most important [:D]

Pretty much like "want to be needed and not needed to be wanted" phrase

Ur friend probably meant that u were fun to hang out with, chirpy,bubbly,can talk about diff stuff,etc etc.. and when he said not funny- maybe u dont have to go xtra mile to be funny...

Being fun=Good company
Being Funny=Good to laugh at :D

So, take the compliment and say thanks!

It means you are good company, but not necessarily good in making people laugh.

Should I even be researching this? :-)

Shruti said...

you're fun- its nice having you around, we have a nice time.
you're not funny- things you say don't make me laugh.
you're funny- 1. you make me laugh. OR 2. you say and do weird things!
To each, his own..
Hey but being fun is fun! :)

Loads of difference - you know how to have a good time and people have fun hanging out with you, but this doesn't have anything with your sense of humor (totally my intepretation). Like I'm a fun girl but I'm not funny at all!

sme people i know say that being funny means being weird.. ever heard "he is acting funny today"

yur company is fun-- sounds good and nice!

Thinking aloud said...

U r fun to be with...but you don't make me laugh!..i think :)

@ all,

Thanks ppl for indulging me! We are together on wot fun means.
fun = good company, nice to hang out with

But I'm as uncertain bout funny as I was before. Some think its being weird, able to laugh, able to make others laugh, good to laugh at et etc.

But I think Shruti came closest to what I had in mind!

Vik said...

Yea, that is exactly what I wanted to say. Perhaps, your dry jokes at the guy is just not his best dessert. So he is forced to say you are not funny any more.. LOL

Besides, babes you don't curse i know.. :-)

@ vik,
u mean jokes like - a very detailed explanation on somebody's name when abbreviated, esply when they are upset bout smthg important ? Dry indeed!

Vik said...

I dont know if that is the joke you tried on the guy.. LOL

That sounds lame to me.. LOL honestly

Aroon said...

I think ur fun means that ur good company but not necessarily a person whos funny..

Solitaire said...

You dont make them laugh like there is no tomorrow but you still give them the warm fuzzy feeling when they are with you.

Shrinivas said...

I dont know you, but the comment says that you're not up to the level of expected fun...hmm..they expect too much funny things from you..am I rt?May be u can terror them next to get the comment YOU R REALY FUNNY

Shrinivas said...
