Dating a sarcastic girl can be a reward and a nightmare all rolled into one. It depends on the girl and how you react to her personality. Sarcastic girls tend to say things that may come off as sassy, cocky, or in some cases, even bitchy. But the truth is, most sarcastic people are very sweet and sensitive, and I promise once you get to know us, you won’t regret it. Here are 10 things you should know before dating a sarcastic girl:
1. It may take a while for us to open up
Sometimes, people tell us that our sarcasm scares them off, so we shouldn’t be as sarcastic. While that statement is totally false, we may not jump right into every situation with sarcastic remarks. But slowly, as we get to know you, you’ll start hearing things that will make you turn around and go “Did she really just say that?” but hey, once that happens, you can’t turn back.
2. Take everything we say lightheartedly
For the most part, when someone is sarcastic, it’s really just a part of their sense of humor and their personality. When we crack a joke at you, take it with a grain of salt. In most cases, when we make fun of you, it’s usually about something that we admire about you.
3. If you think you’re supposed to laugh, it’s because you are
There will be times when we’ll say something, look at you with a straight face, and wait to see how you respond. Sometimes, you may not know what to say, but for the most part, just laugh if it’s an appropriate time because we’re hardly ever serious about things (Believe me; you’ll know when we are being serious).
4. We don’t always think before we speak
Sometimes, we get into a heated argument with someone, and we ended up saying something without really thinking. It may not be the nicest thing we ever say. If this happens, trust me; we probably realize right after we say it and will overthink it for the rest of the day.
5. If we’re insulting you, it’s our way of flirting
You know when you were in elementary school and all the adults would say “If a boy if teasing you, it means he likes you?” Well, when it comes to sarcastic girls and flirting, this is pretty much what you’ll get. Don’t expect any eyelash-batting or hair-twirling. Expect digs… and lots of them.
6. We love banter, so don’t be afraid to dish it right back
For the most part, people don’t always understand our sense of humor, so once we find someone who does (and who can keep that humor going between us), I guarantee they’ve won a spot in our hearts.
7. We’ll call you out on your bull
Sarcastic people are very smart and can pick up when someone is trying to pull a fast one. If you think you can lie to us, you’d better think again. For the most part, we’re two steps ahead of you, and we will call you out on your shit.
8. We don’t take ourselves seriously
This ties in with points one and two. A sarcastic girl will never be afraid to laugh at herself if she does or says something stupid; in reality, she’ll be the first person to crack a joke about it. Plus, with more people laughing, there’s more of a guarantee that she’ll laugh even harder.
9. We’re laughing with you, not at you (well, for the most part)
If you’re with someone who is sarcastic, you have to have a good sense of humor, or it isn’t going to work out between the two of you. So, if you do something that is dumb or questionable, we may raise our eyebrows at you and start laughing, but I promise, it’s usually going to be with you and not at you.
10. When we love you, we love you
Behind all that hard exterior is a sweet girl who is a total hopeless romantic. We may come off as blunt or frank, and you may question whether we like you very much. But, once you get a sarcastic girl to fall for you, you’ll realize that she falls hard. Even though she may drive you crazy at times, and question your sanity. You’ll know that when she says “I love you,” she truly means it.
Dating a sarcastic girl has its ups and its downs. There will be times when you don’t think you can take another second of the harshness and the bluntness that comes from her. But, once you fall for this girl, you’ll realize that she was the missing piece that you needed all along. So sit back, and enjoy the journey (and all the laughs along the way).
