On “Psychology Behind the Headlines” host Patricia Wu and guest therapist Ryan Heapy discuss how sarcasm can lead to misunderstandings and hurt feelings, even when well-intentioned.

Sarcasm Can Misfire

Sarcasm relies on tone and understanding, which can be easily misconstrued – especially in romantic relationships.

Communication Styles Differ

Your upbringing and cultural background affect how you use and interpret sarcasm. What’s playful to you may feel hurtful to your partner.

Clarity is Kind

When in doubt, opt for direct communication to show respect and avoid misunderstandings in your relationship.
