My Girlfriend is foreign exchange student from Germany. She doesn't understand my humor...
This girl, who comes from Frankfurt, and I have been dating a little over two months, since she came to the US to study this semester. I really like her. She's everything I want in a gf... sweet, determined, sincere, beautiful...not a fake like so many girls I know. The only problem is She's Like seriously gullible and doesn't understand American sarcasim. I am trying to help her but im getting tired of having to explain Myself all the time as if im talking to a 6 year old! Plus my friends have noticed and Im afraid shes going to get strung along and hurt. Parties are dangerous affairs for her and I hesitate to take her... How can I help her understand American culture better? Will she learn? Will she always be kind of "magoo?" (for lack of a better word)

they're not known for getting humour.

being constantly sarcastic is not a nice trait anyway. if she's a nice girl, just accept her for what she is, and try not to be an arse all the time when you're with her, or, ditch her and find a skank with a sense of humour

Im not sarcastic in a mean personal way, more like in a general way to point out things I think are ridiculous, unnecessary or stupid. Im self deprecating With it as well. People find it funny, its good in social situations, its part of my personality, always has been. But my GF just doesn't get it! She takes everything literally. Im constantly saying "no baby, thats not what I or they mean" even when im surrounded by others.

If it were just me that she didn't understand, you would probably be on to something. But its others as well. Now maybe I need all new friends, who take everything literally, all the time, so that she would feel more comfortable but thats not really realistic. She wants to be "in my life" but theres a language and cultural barrier.

Girls and sarcasm...you must be new. You wouldn't stuff mud in her ears either, would you? Either they don't get it, or they don't like it, there are just these two types.

Restrict yourself to sweet-talk and calling her a cunt, once in a while to spice it up, that will do.

Op I'm American and I can't stand sarcasm because if you actually think about it, it's really LYING. Even for laughs, lying is not funny. It's bad. I crack people up and people tell me I'm funny, but I don't lie to accomplish this. Stop lying and partying with lying scum

as i am having a master´s degree in cynism and, as well, in sarcasm and i am a german girl, maybe - without using these devices of eloquence - she is just not as good with the english language as she would need to be to understand your kind of humor.
maybe she is totally lacking understanding of sarcasm in german, too, but this would make look her just "dumb".

maybe it is the language barrier that makes different nations incompatible regarding humor.
if one know a foreign language as good as their mother tongue, jokes and humor come naturally and easy to understand.
i personally like how, in english, can be played with words and pronounciation, we don´t have this in german.

sarcasm and cynism, if used regularily, make the person using them look "negative", as these devices of language do not deal with the positive,beautiful things in life, but always with something "bad".
maybe she is a positive being and doesn´t understand constant negativity.

he's right, Germans have little to no humor. it's not a language barrier. they don't understand why Americans laugh and smile so much. not that they don't enjoy themselves, they just enjoy life in a different way than we do, which doesn't result in laughing and smiling.
