Women who appreciated "wit-word play" and "self-deprecating" humor were most likely to score a second date from men.
EHarmony's users rank humor as highly as things like loyalty, they want in a partner and yet no one knows what that means — no one's ever matched on it," Langston told CNBC.
Lately, the company is conducting research to find out how that plays into comparability. "Since we know everyone's humor type, we are able to see if people who have similar senses of humor are more likely to be attracted to each other and if so, how much similarity is necessary,'" said Langston.
Still, having a shared level of appreciation for "surreal humor," "dark humor" or "observational humor" was correlated closely with a successful first date.
