Langley and Coquitlam are home to B.C.’s funniest singles, according to a study conducted by dating website EliteSingles.

The study of more than 170,000 singles, asked respondents how strongly they agreed with the statement “I often make others laugh,” and ranked Canada’s funniest cities based on the results.


But why does it matter where B.C.’s funniest singles congregate? Well, many people find the ability to laugh with your partner to be an essential part of a healthy relationship. In another study conducted by EliteSingles in 2014, 97% of respondents say they look for sense of humour in a partner.

“Laughing together is probably the best sign of a healthy relationship for a couple. Humour and self-mockery definitely help to forge happy memories and the ability to make each other giggle with just a glance creates a strong friendship between two people,” says psychologist Salama Marine.

Marine adds having humour in a relationship is an indicator of longevity. When two people can be ridiculous around each other, it creates a strong friendship.

Here’s a map of the cities with Canada’s funniest singles:
