I stay indoors due to anxiety around people and rarely venture outdoors or to family outings <my family>. Closest thing to that is messages or when they visit here...but to them I think I am more of a house pet then a human. As for partners parents in past rarely met some, and ones I did meet I was not impressed with verbally or mentally. Though keeping the peace and staying to myself makes life more calm.

I swear I can't stand when people get all agitated when youths show the proper respect. Ahhhhh it makes me RAGEEEE just thinking about that moment when it happened to me lol. Even reading your post with what that customer did to you makes me get mad. I mean it doesn't mean 'old' for goodness sakes! For me it basically says 'you are a tad older than me, I want to show you the proper respect' but the adult that I had a run in with I guess translated it to: "Hey, you old fart." Seriously kudos to you for handling it so well in front of that customer, my process of faces would be this if this happened to me again: haha I dunno why this issue bugs me so much. I guess because it makes my run ins with adults more awkward now since I don't know what 'respect' lvl they want me to show now. When I especially start dating again I will be just as confused. Your bf's dad handled it the nice and really cool way though. Why can't all adults handle it that way???


I get "agitated" when youths don't show the proper respect (try to use my first name in the physical world). I'm like WTF, b*tch, we're NOT equals. I think lack of respect/manners like that says a lot about a person (none of it positive). I'd NEVER do that to an elder unless they told me to, which is why I briefly called my in-laws Mr. & Mrs. (insert name here), until they told me to call them by their first names. Even though I have permission to do it (actually they demanded it) I still feel creeped out about it and it comes out forced. As a result I try to avoid having to use their names.

The first time we were to meet, I'd definitely use Mr. and Mrs. The vast majority of people though would rather you call them by their first names. So usually it moves to first names pretty quick.

FINALLY! Another person understands me as well lol I swear I was so shocked when that dad said "You don't have to sir me..." like I had just insulted his mother. It made me so mad lol. First names for people older than me just doesn't feel right and so disrespectful.

Since I'm a Filipino, whenever I visit a filipino friend's house, I just call them Tita (female) and Tito (male). It's a form of respect, it's like saying Mrs. and Mr. in my language, but has a more closer, casual meaning to it.

If I come over to a non-filipino friend's house, I just call them Mrs./Mr. [insert last name here].

But since my last girlfriend was Korean, I did this/completely avoided them since her parents didn't know about us.

Is it just me, or did you just get more attractive.

Well, for any familiar adult that I meet in a casual setting, I call them by their first name, unless they're Japanese. Then the whole -san honorifics start to play in.
