wpbnole saidI think so. In college I had a roommate who was plagued with insecurities and to everyone besides me (his only friend at the time) he was very sarcastic and condescending. When I pointed it out he admitted it was a defense mechanism. No excuse to be a dick but people like that end up alone.
Im sarcastic and condescending...but Im great...please explain!
I suppose it depends on a person's patience. I have a friend that is very sarcastic and condescending, but there are times when I'm not feeling it and I find it very, very annoying. It's not enough to make me drop the friendship. Then again I've always seen friendship as a connection beyond what is convenient. That means you are willing to tolerate some of their crappy qualities. If they do it alllllll the frickin time I tell them they are annoying and I usually leave.
But like I said it's not enough to end the friendship with them. I don't know a true friend I have in my life that I like 100% of the time. That's just reality.
