Why can somebody be blunt?

So people I often think I am I am being sarcastic while I am not. Here’s an example: I’ll say oh that’s nice or that’s good. And friends will say ohh I can see the first bit was sarcasm. I’ll say no it wasn’t. I’m just very straight forward and too direct and too organised especially in the way I talk also.
I am very to the point but I’m also very jokey some times. I feel I am not the most expressive person. That’s due to my past.
But what causes people to be like that?
Reserved in their words? If so how can I change that. Sometimes I like it as it puts a wall up

Maybe it's the way you deliver it, as in your tone and facial expressions. "That's nice" and "that's good" are hard words to say without being sarcastic tbf, so it's not a massive issue but maybe be a little more enthusiastic when reacting to things or sense the mood in the room.

There should be some videos on speech and language for conversations on YouTube. Another thing that helped me (as someone with aspergers) was watching a fair bit of stand up comedy or examples of humour so to understand punchlines, delivery and how a slight change can turn a sentence into something completely different, especially things like double entendres.

You're just sensible. There is no reason to ramble on about something when its not needed, it's not necessarily a bad quality to have.

Think is I don’t have autism or aspergers. Sometimes I think I do as I can’t take a joke. I take things seriously.
I’ll have a look. Thanks

It's tone.

I am super blunt and super direct, and I can say 'oh that's cool' without people thinking I'm being snide.

That’s good. It’s harder on messages though x

Yeah, text really doesn't convey intention and I is so easy to misread!
