8 Things You Must Know Before Dating a Sarcastic Woman


_________________________

The sarcastic woman: “I think I like you. Guess I’ll have to notify the other men I’m dating.” Translation: “I do like you. I am dating other people, but you are the front runner. This is a compliment.” By now, most have heard of the “Five Love Languages” — an incredible book and communication tool by Gary Chapman — and it’s likely you know your primary and secondly love languages (Words of Affirmation and Acts of Service). But, time and time again, I speak a language many might find foreign, some deem offensive and others see as magic. I’m talking about sarcasm. On résumés and under proficiencies, you will find a slew of technical skills. If you read closely, you will always find a line item that reads, “Fluent in sarcasm.” That, in and of itself, is sarcasm. It is not only a matter of tone and delivery. I’m convinced sarcasm is the sixth love language. It is frequently misinterpreted, but when properly received, it builds bonds.
