Myth: You need to be humorous to attract friends
Do you know people who don't have a sense of humor but still have friends? Plenty! Having a sense of humor is not a prerequisite
for people to want to spend time with you. Can you imagine how sometimes some people might actually be turned off by
someone who is humorous. They might think "everything's a joke with him, he's never serious, how can he empathize,
everything's great with him, he couldn't relate to my life." So being humorous is neither a requirement nor is
it a guarantee people will want to spend time with you.

Another myth: People want to be with attractive people. Not!
Think of how much money people spend on their appearance, even more than their physical health! But does it really pay
off? People might have an initial attraction or curiosity to an attractive person, but after their curiosity is satisfied
they don't necessarily stick around. Do you know people who are not particularly attractive but still have friends.
Of course. Can you imagine how some times some people would be uncomfortable around an attractive person? They might
feel insecure and jealous. They might not try to ask the person out for a date. They might think the person is shallow
or even dumb. So, being attractive is neither a prerequisite for others to hang out with you, nor is it a guarantee.
