10 Things You Must Know Before Loving A Sarcastic Woman

Things Must Know Before Loving Sarcastic Woman

7. Sarcastic women display sarcasm at inappropriate times.

We can’t help it because we don’t have an on/off switch. Sometimes the snarkiness comes out at the wrong times. When I’m nervous, I develop “diarrhea of the mouth,” where the words just pour out in a steady stream with no end in sight. It’s like the filter between my brain and my mouth breaks and I end up blurting out crazy things.

This is especially wonderful on first dates and at crowded meetings while sitting around a table with dozens of scholarly individuals. The date who laughs is the guy who gets a second date. And the one person in the crowded meeting who laughs gets to sit next to me when we break for lunch. (Or, more accurately, is the only one willing to sit by me when we break for lunch.)

“What do you like to do for fun, Dawn.”

“I like to read, go to the beach, and eat people’s livers with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.”

Dumbfounded stare because they’re not sure what to make of that.

8. If a sarcastic woman is sarcastic with you that means we like you.

We’re much more apt to use sarcasm on people we like. We’re like 6-year-old boys who kick sand on and pull the pigtails of, the girls we like. If we didn’t like you, we wouldn’t waste our superior wit on you. It’s our way of showing affection. Just go with it.

9. Sarcasm is our automatic default.

“Think of all you could accomplish, Dawn, if you didn’t spend so much time thinking of sarcastic answers.” That’s the thing — we don’t search our brains and try to think of sarcastic comments; sarcasm is our default setting.

The sarcasm is automatically there on the tips of our tongues. We have to stop and think really hard to come up with a non-sarcastic comment. It’s hard to do.

When we manage to pull a sincere comment from our brains, appreciate it because it was not an easy task, and it will probably be a while before you ever hear another one.

10. Our sarcasm will rub off on you if you stick with us long enough.

At a school conference 16 years ago, my son’s preschool teacher told me, “Your son is sarcastic. That’s unusual. Most kids this age don’t really understand sarcasm.” I gave a nervous little laugh and said, “Um yeah, he gets it from his father.”

Now, at the age of 20, I’m proud to say that the same kid who used to get in trouble in preschool for talking through his butt like Ace Ventura is now one of the most hilarious, quick-witted, genuinely funny, and sarcastic people I know.

I’m (sniff sniff, wiping tears of appreciation) so very proud.

Not everyone is a fan of dry humor, but sarcasm is surely one of the interesting mode of communication.

By being sarcastic, you suggest people may see the underlying message that you are trying to convey which could be the direct opposite from what you are actually saying, and trust us, this is a great connection to have with anyone – your close friend and family members or your potential or existing romantic partner.

Sarcasm is also the core of that attractive sense of humor that many guys find absolutely irresistible in women.
