Humor Is Never Translated

I've never had much of a witty or sarcastic sense of humor but as I've gotten older my point of view on life has changed a lot and my sense of humor has too, I don't know if its for the better or worst. I guess better for me because I use my sense of humor to project myself from rejection or judgement, letting negative things people say about me not affect me emotionally. But I've also become much more blunt and harsh, which I guess is also a defense. Either way, I do have a kind light hearted sense of humor but its harder for me to show that side of me to people I don't know. So instead I just come off as being weird and awkward, and no one seems to understand what I'm talking about or whether I'm serious or not.

Yeah, life experiences will definitely change your sense of humor. Personally, I think the more real-world or tough experiences a person has, the more sarcastic and witty their humors become. When you meet like minded people, they will appreciate it! Many people I know just give me a blank stare when I make a joke. But most of those people live in la-la land and have simple lives, without a care in the world...so they don't genuinely understand sarcasm. My real friends crack up when I make a joke because they have the experience & brains to get it!
