Dating Language Translation

Today's Ctrl+Alt+Del comic had me laughing, not the least of which is due to my forays with eHarmony.

Premise: Unbeknownst to him, Lucas has been set up on a blind date with Kate by Zeke the Xbox. (Zeke communicated with her online on Lucas' behalf.) During the conversation, the artist has so thoughtfully included translations of what Lucas says. Here's the punchline:
Kate:So, what do you usually look for in girls?
Lucas: Umm...* Well, sense of humor is really important.**

*Not you.
**Looks are important, but nobody can say that out loud without sounding like an asshole.
