For us sarcastic girls, the language of sarcasm might as well be our mother tongue. We speak it fluently and often find it difficult to stop. Don’t think that means that we’re emotionless, though, we’re just trying to have some fun and live our lives the way that we want.
Being with us will be a complete maze if you don’t already know what you’re signing up for. To help you, these are 17 crucial things you should know before dating a sarcastic girl.
1. It’s Safe to Assume We’re Joking
Whenever you’re unsure of whether we’re being serious or not, we’re probably just joking. This is valid for almost every situation, so you can pretty much use this as a rule at all times.
2. When We’re Mean, it Means We Like You
When we’re being mean, we’re just teasing you. It’s the only way that we know how to show affection. We save some of our quickest, harshest wit for the people in our lives that we really like.
3. We Forget That Not Everyone Understand Us
If you introduce us to your sarcasm-illiterate friends, don’t expect us to stop our usual banter. We can’t comprehend that someone might not understand sarcasm.
4. We Never Forget
Remember the time that you walked straight into a lamppost two years ago in the middle of a crowded street? Yeah, we remember that, and we won’t let you forget it either.
5. We Seem Over-Confident, But We’re Really Not
From the way that we speak, we seem like we’re the cockiest people in the world. The truth is that we can be quite self-conscious at times. Sarcasm helps us to mask our insecurities.
6. Sometimes, We’ll Try to Be Sincere
We really do care, and at times we’ll try to show it. The problem is that when we do, people still think that we’re being insincere. We can get quite upset when this happens and will immediately regret putting ourselves out there like that.
7. We Think We’re Hilarious
Even if no one else thinks that we’re funny, we’re our own biggest fans. We’ll never fail to make ourselves laugh, but we’ll always try to make you laugh too.
8. Don’t Expect a Straightforward Compliment
Backhanded compliments are second nature to us. Don’t take it personally, we do really mean the compliment side of our “complisults”.
9. We Know When We’ve Gone Too Far
Although we have no shame in being sarcastic, sometimes we will say something that we regret. We know when we’ve gone too far with a joke and will always apologize for it.
10. Fighting Back is Good
You can be sarcastic with us too! Sly comments, teasing, backhanded compliments, we want you to do all these things as well. To us, it’s just a bit of fun banter that we want to engage in with you.
11. There’s No Off Switch
Yes, we can dial it down, but sarcasm seems to come out of our mouths almost automatically. It’s like a physical reaction that we have no control over.
12. We Have Trouble Expressing Ourselves
All the time that we’ve spent being sarcastic has led us to some difficulty with normal communication. When we want to express something that we deem to be sappy, we’ll have a hard time doing so.
13. Texting Us is a Landmine
It’s hard to tell when someone is being sarcastic through text. Quite often, you’ll think that we’re just being rude.
14. Comforting Us Can Be Difficult
We don’t like to admit when something is really bothering us. Even when you know that something is wrong, trying to comfort us in our distress probably won’t work out too well. We may make fun of you for it, but we really do appreciate when you try to help.
15. We’re Always Messing Around
Life is a playground and we’re just here to have some fun. Us sarcastic girls don’t take ourselves very seriously, so we’re always joking around.
16. We’re Surprisingly Sensitive
We do have emotions underneath it all. It can be hard to tell when you’ve upset us, however, since we never like to let our feelings show. Doing so feels too revealing and uncomfortable for us.
17. You’ll Become Sarcastic
Just face it, you’re doomed to be just like us. If you’re around us for long enough, you’ll become sarcastic too. Honestly, the world is much more interesting that way anyway.
We know that being with us can be tricky but sticking with it proves to us that you really care. Those who get close enough are the only ones who will get to see our true selves, emotions, sincerity and all.
If you’re lucky enough to have a sarcastic girl in your life, you’re going to have a really fun time together.
