Its so hard to figure out the feelings and intent behind words. For instance I was raised in a very dry humor/sarcastic kind of home. .....I've found that apparently I come across as a b!#@$. A little bit in person...a lot online.
So how to avoid this? Im a pretty nice person irl. I get worked up about things here and there but I try to be pretty empathetic. Is there some kind of smiley/font/whatever im missing out on ?? Lol

Huh.  I've never found you bitchy. 

But then I'm a generally a dry person too so maybe I'm not the best one to ask, lol.

 

I also think a good percentage of the women here are batshit crazy (it doesn't bother me, but if someone flies off the handle at you, sometimes it really is them, not you!), and you should never take an anon seriously, so.

Using lol and smiley faces helps the tone not sound serious but I get what you mean. So many things I type would be taken so much differently if I could say them

Demand a sarcasm font for cm!! Lol, I'm the same way and it just kills the sarcasm if you have to put (sarcasm) behind whatever it is you said

I'm an elementary school teacher. I took smilies 101, 102, and spent an entire semester overseas with a concentration in smiles.
