#4. No Offense
The rule of dating a sarcastic person is that you should take no offense. Your partner makes mean or sneering comments about you, but you should not take offense. You should know that a sarcastic person will make such comments and they do not mean them so you should not get offended. It is their habit, and they really can’t stop themselves. They make such remarks thinking that you will not take any offense because you know how they are. They do not mean any harm to you.
If you get offended by something or if you think that they are exceeding their limits, then you should ignore them. Give them a silent treatment, and they will automatically realize that they have said something wrong. You do not always have to be a part of their joke if you do not feel like it. The relationship is about both the partners, and you do not have to do something that is not your cup of tea. Ignoring a remark can be the best thing you do at that point otherwise it could lead to a fight.
#6. Tell Them To Stop
In case you feel that your date or your partner has crossed their limit, then you should stop them then and there. Your partner will not know that their comments affect you until you tell them that they do. So, stop your partner the moment you feel that the situation is slipping out of your hands. Tell them whatever offended you and they will not repeat it next time. We have known it that sarcastic people do not mean what they say and so they do not want to hurt people. Let them know where they should stop and till where it is fine for you.
If you get into an argument with your date and they make comments that are wrong and do not support the situation and the topic of debate, then you should correct them. They will not mind if you correct them. You can tell them that their comment was silly and inappropriate. You should not allow your date to dominate because of their sarcastic skills. Your date can use their skill to win an argument because they know that you will not be able to come up with a better remark and probably you will leave the conversation. But you should not give them an opportunity to win by taking over the situation in your hands and using your own debating skills.
You can make your date feel better by appreciating their sarcastic skills. You can compliment them in the form of an insult. This way you will be complimenting your partner sarcastically. Sarcasm is not easy. It needs knowledge and wit, so a person who is sarcastic wants to be praised for it. You should praise them by telling them that they are really good at it.
#9. Support Them
A sarcastic person uses sarcasm to make the other person feel low, and by making the other person feel inferior, they make themselves feel intelligent and superior. Sarcasm works as a coping mechanism, and such people tend to have low self-esteem. This is why you should support them. Make them realize that they can be better by improving themselves and not by making the other person look bad. It is necessary that they start learning to appreciate themselves more than comparing with others as a comparison will bring a feeling of inferiority. Sarcastic people can be very mean at times but they are good at heart, and they always make you laugh your heart out. They deserve to be supported and loved by you.
