Dating a sarcastic girl is not as bad as it sounds. Sarcasm might sometimes feel like an offence, but in fact, it's more complicated than that. Sarcastic people are not mean; they just share their own unique kind of humour.
Here are 20 things you need to know about your sarcastic girlfriend:
1) She is not easily offended.
One of the best traits of a sarcastic girl is that she doesn't take words so seriously. She understands when something is a joke and she's not hypersensitive with everything she hears. You can say almost whatever you want in front of her - at least whatever you would discuss with your best friend!
2) She knows how to have fun.
The fact that she has a good sense of humour allows this girl to have fun the best way she can. You'll never be bored when you're around her, she can always find a way to keep you both excited.
3) She has a unique way of showing her affection.
Sarcastic girls won't tell you "I love you", at least not so fast. You need to wait for her to be truly assured that you're the one for her. However, a sarcastic girl can show you her affection in... sarcastic ways.
4) She likes messing with you in a good way.
Don't take things too seriously. She likes being sarcastic, because that's who she really is. She doesn't mean to offend you or upset you. It's her way of sharing her thoughts and her feelings.
5) She's really honest.
She will always tell you what she thinks, no matter what. That can be good, but it can also be painful sometimes. The thing is that you will never need to be suspicious or jealous. She values honesty more than anything.
6) She values personality more than appearance.
Sarcasm is a sign of a really great personality. This girl is really smart, like all people with a good sense of humour. That's why she likes hanging out with intelligent people. And if she thinks appearance is not the most important thing in a relationship... well, that's a trait.
7) Sarcasm is a way to defend herself.
Being sarcastic doesn't mean she's untouchable. She has her weaknesses too. Maybe that's what she tries to hide by being ironic most of the time. She needs to trust you completely to show you her insecurities, but then you'll love her even more.
8) She can be really shy.
You might think that's she's a totally extroverted person, but the truth is that she becomes easily shy. Try to meet her to your friends or even your parents and you'll find out. When she values someone, she starts feeling insecure. So don't forget to make her feel comfortable - she's a human being with human feelings too!
9) She doesn't flirt like the other girls.
A sarcastic girl loves flirting by laughing at the other person or by completely ignoring them! It sounds a little immature and maybe it is, but you have to admit that it's also playful and sweet.
10) She is spontaneous.
She likes living every moment of her life without thinking too much. She likes making fast decisions, having a good time and making weird jokes. That's who she is and probably that's why you love her.
11) But she sometimes wishes she could think before she speaks.
There are things we all wish we didn't say. Imagine how a sarcastic person feels about such things. They say mean things all the time, without even meaning them. But if you don't know them, you can easily hate them because of that.
12) She will occasionally say something incredibly honest, but you won’t realize it because you’ll think she's being sarcastic.
Then, she will feel pretty foolish for putting herself out there.
13) She does get hurt easily, but she never admits it.
You'll rarely see her cry. She likes to hide her tears, because she doesn't enjoy seeming vulnerable. You need to start understanding her reactions so that you'll comfort her when she gets hurt. It's really hard for her to admit it!
14) She's really proud.
That can be a bad thing because she rarely admits she's mistaken about something. When she realize she said something wrong, she stops talking and she looks really angry. She's basically angry with herself.
15) She doesn't really know how to make a move.
She truly doesn't know how to give you the signal that she likes you/loves you/cares about you/wants to apologize. She's just hoping you will see through her sarcasm and see she's basically dying for you to notice her.
16) She can see right through you.
Understanding other people’s state of mind and emotions are related to her ability to understand sarcasm. If she is responding with a sarcastic remark to your excuse, then she probably doesn't believe you. So you'd better watch out!
17) She is an introvert.
That's because she finds meeting new people exhausting! She has to be nice and friendly, until she knows them well enough to unveil her true self.
18) She likes dating smart people.
You are not the type to keep quite at her nonsensical comments and more often than not, provide some extremely witty comebacks of your own.
19) She can somehow insult you whilst making you laugh.
You don’t even realise until after, but by then her humour has won your forgiveness. That's why she's adorable.
20) She doesn't have a lot of friends.
But it's not because people hate her sarcasm. It's actually because she likes choosing the right people to be by her side. She also believes that the less, the better. So if you're her boyfriend, you're a lucky guy. And remember: she chose you!
