My boyfriend’s family has a very sarcastic sense of humor. For example they will joke around when my boyfriend isn’t right on time to meet me somewhere, that he is with some other girl. I joke back and pretend that I am going to hurt them. Even his parents joke around this way with everyone else. I actually find it funny and I know how to take a joke. I also have a dry, sarcastic sense of humor.

However, one night at dinner, we were talking about how my boyfriend wanted to buy a EXTREMELY cheap house in the area of Long Beach. I was joking and said wow it must have mold growing in it and be in a bad neighborhood for the price to be that cheap. And I was jokingly saying, how my boyfriend would have to walk me to my car if we ever lived there, because it’s probably so dangerous. His older sister blurts out, “You’re ugly, get over yourself.” And my boyfriend starts laughing, not even jokingly defending me back saying “no she’s gorgeous.” After that comment his sister says, “the only thing you’re good at his spending his money,” then “you hardly even work, you spend more time shopping.” None of those statements are true, but it was just like wtf, do you really need to go that far?

My boyfriend was laughing the whole time at this. I may have found it more funny if he was defending me a little bit. I feel like I’m being picked on with comments like that. What do you think? Wouldn’t you be upset if someone was bashing on you and then your boyfriend didn’t say one thing to defend you and just laughed with his sister?

Thanks for reading.

    Wow shes a bitch! Lmao talk to your boyfriend about it, he’ll give you fact input rather then you going to his sister and asking.

    Obviously his sister has a problem with you. You just have to ask her what it is. There was no reason for her to be like that. And your boyfriend shouldn’t laugh if you weren’t laughing. That was totally inappropriate. I’d be so mad at him.

    I would have been upset too. Sometimes its hard to tell whether they are joking or not, and your boyfriend probably thought she was joking. Maybe just ask your boyfriend if he knows if she was joking or not, and if he says she wasn’t say “wow, thanks for defending me.” and he says she was joking, say “Oh. I thought she was being serious and I thought you should have defended me.” or something a long those lines….Even if it was true, dinner is no where to bring something like that up. She kinda seems like a jerk.

    Peace and Love

    At that moment I would have gotten up and left his house. It seems to me like his sister has something against you. Why did she even say that? Is your boyfriend talking about you behind your back? Why would his sister even bring out those things? Why did he laugh and not defend you? I doesn’t seem like you are very convinced about your boyfriends family. This isn’t about being able to take a joke or being sarcastic, it’s about respect. His sister crossed the line, or perhaps in the way that you said things she decided to stick up for her brother by attacking you. I still feel the need to question why she would make those assumptions, perhaps your boyfriends is talking about your relationship to her and complaining about you. I personally would not put myself in that situation. There are plenty of guys out there that will respect you. Perhaps I’ve sidetracked from your original question…but I have been in your situation before.
