15 Things to Remember if You Love A Sarcastic Person

15 Things to Remember if You Love A Sarcastic Person

Loving a sarcastic person comes with rewards – and a lot of pain. For the sarcastic other, it takes a unique set of skills to continue to play tricks with other people. How much you can appreciate this depends on how much you know the traits of a sarcastic person.

1. They always make an unforgettable first impression

Meeting a sarcastic person for the first time means you either get appreciated or get castigated by them. How you respond is what will determine how terrible or how interesting the meeting went.

2. They are never direct with their emotions

It is always difficult to know where their allegiance lies or how they express their feelings. “I hate you” could mean “I love you” and “I love you” could mean “I hate you”.

3. They are not always sarcastic

Don’t always assume their cocky persona belies insincerity. Even when they say “you are the most beautiful person in the room” this doesn’t mean they feel otherwise. It is just the unusual and arrogant way they try express their failures.

4. They do remember everything

They are not so forgetful to remember your embarrassing moments and your failures. In fact they still have souvenirs to prove how terrible you looked or you were when your crush kissed your greatest rival.

5. They show affections with mean comments

The meaner the comment or the remark, the more affection they have for you. Doing this isn’t to break your heart but to eliminate whatever boundaries that exist between you two.

6. They cannot be quickly fooled

Like dogs, they are able to sniff and know who you really are beyond whatever screen you present to them. Perhaps it is because they have irony wired in them; they can perceive any of our pretence from a mile away.

7. They enjoy sarcasm aimed at them

Sarcasm to them is a two way thing. They like it when you make fun of them, because this offers them an opportunity to aim it directly back at you.

8. They appreciate it when you do not take them too seriously

They see sarcasm or making fun of you as ideal and necessary. They would feel validated and appreciate you more if you do not take their sarcasm so seriously.

9. They are impulsive

Sarcasm is more like an involuntary action. Sometimes it just spills out of them even when they do not mean or intend to throw a joke at you.

10. They can be serious too

Even when they spend so much time mocking others and making fun of them, there are times they are also sincere. Yet it is difficult to discern this because they are used to being sarcastic.

11. They savour any meeting with another sarcastic person

They are always excited about meeting another of their kind as this offers them the opportunity to improve their art and engage in one of those sarcastic duels.

12. They are not great at offering compliments

They prefer making a situation rather than embracing the idea that you really deserve a compliment. They would make such times to show how sarcastic they can really be.

13. They are not great at accepting compliments

It is difficult to really mean a “thank you” because they see the world just the same way they have presented it to others – nothing is as serious as it seems.

13. They make people uncomfortable around them

People really do not know how to respond to them, because their sense of humour is not always so appealing.

14. They also have feelings

Because they are sarcastic doesn’t make them less emotional or robotic. It is just that they have a way of bottling up their emotions with a sarcastic front.

Advertising

15. They are able to speak out

In the real sense sarcastic people are great at reading people’s thoughts and speaking out. While others may hole up their intentions, sarcastic people know how to break the ice and add a little humour with it.

7 Signs of an Unhappy Relationship That Makes You Feel Stuck

7 Signs of an Unhappy Relationship That Makes You Feel Stuck

Relationships are complicated and when you’re unhappy, it can be difficult to tell what’s causing it and what needs to change.

Sometimes it’s as easy as opening up to your partner about your problems, while other times it may be necessary to switch partners or roll solo to get your mind straight.

When you’re in the thick of things, it can be difficult to tell if you’re unhappy in your relationship or just unhappy in general (in which case, a relationship may be just the cure you need).

Here’re signs of an unhappy relationship that is possibly making you feel stuck:

1. You’re depressed about your home life.

No matter what you do in life, you’re going to have good and bad days. Your relationship is no different.

However, no matter what you’re going through at home, you have to feel comfortable in your own home.

If you constantly dread going home because your significant other is there, there’s a problem. Maybe it’s something you already know about, everyone has an argument or just needs some alone time.

When that yearning to be alone becomes an insatiable obsession over the course of months and years, it’s time to realize you’re not the exception to the rule.

You’re unhappy in your relationship, and you need to take a look in the mirror and do whatever it takes to make yourself smile.

2. You aren’t comfortable being yourself.

Remember all those things you discovered about yourself when you first got together? The way your partner made you feel when you met that made you fall in love with him or her in the first place.

If they don’t make you feel that way anymore, it’s not the end of the world. If your partner makes you uncomfortable about being you, then her or she is only dragging you down. It’s up to you to decide how to handle that.

You need to be comfortable with who you are. This means being comfortable in your skin and with the way you walk, talk, look, breath, move, and all the other things that make you uniquely you.

If the person who supposedly loves you doesn’t make you feel good about yourself, know that you can do better. They’re not even one in a billion.

3. You can’t stop snooping.

Mutual trust is necessary in any relationship. The only way to get that trust is with respect.

I can find you anywhere online, no matter how private and secure you think you are. The odds of you having a password I can’t crack are slim. If we’ve met in person, I could install a remote key logger on your device without even touching it.

Finding your information online hardly takes a clandestine organization. Any idiot with a Wi-Fi-enabled device can cyberstalk you. I’m just the only idiot in the village admitting it.

So now that we know everyone snoops, it’s time to address your personal habits. Governments snoop because they don’t trust us. If you’re snooping on your partner, it’s because you don’t trust them.

It’s ok to have doubts, and it’s perfectly normal to look into anything that looks weird, but keep in mind that data collection is only half of an investigation.

If you find yourself constantly snooping and questioning everything, clearly there’s a trust issue and the relationship likely needs to end.

4. You’re afraid of commitment.

If you’ve been dating longer than a year and you aren’t engaged, it’s never going to happen.

Commitment is important. People will come up with a million ways to describe why they can’t be committed.

No matter who you are if you like it, you need to put a ring on it. Find an engagement ring, stick a gemstone in it and marry the person. If you’re not legally able to get married or you don’t believe in it for one reason or another, have a child (or adopt one, however you’re able to) or treat your partner’s family like your own. It’s a huge financial and mental commitment.

If you’re not ready for one or the other after some time, don’t waste anymore of your precious life on the relationship.

Your relationship should be something that propels you forward. If it’s not going anywhere, make it an open relationship and call it what it is—dating multiple people.

5. You imagine a happier life without your partner.

If all you’re doing is imagining a happier life without your partner, it’s a sign that you’re in the wrong relationship. You’re unhappy and you need to get out.

Your partner should be included in your dreams. There’s nothing wrong with wanting a future with someone.

Try to remember what you dreamed of before you got your heart broken by the realities of life, love and the pursuit of human success.

Remember when you would crush on that cute kid in class? You would secretly imagine marrying him or her and going on an adventure—that’s the way life should be.

If you’re not at least imagining adventures together, then why are you in that relationship?

6. You resent, rather than love your partner.

When a relationship starts to crumble, you begin to resent your partner for all the things you once loved about him or her.

When you’ve reached this point, your partner has reached at least No. 2 on this list. From your partner’s perspective, your unhappiness with them is picked up as bashing them for being who they are.

If you’re both unhappy in the relationship, it’s better if it ends as quickly and painlessly as possible.

7. You chase past feelings.

It’s okay to reminisce about the past, but if all you do is wish things were like they used to be, it’s a sign you’re not on the right path.

You’re unhappy and, at the very least, you need to have an open dialogue about it. This isn’t necessarily a sign that the relationship should end, but it definitely needs a spark.

When you talk to your partner candidly about what it is you’re looking for, you never know how they’ll react. The risk alone is worth it, good or bad.

Final thoughts

If you’re feeling stuck in your current relationship, it’s time to reflect about it with your partner. Don’t ignore these signs of an unhappy relationship as they will slowly go worse and harm both you and your partner in long-term.
