Subject: RE: BS: Culture clash, German-US/Brit
My friend Ronda when aged about sixty began a relationship with a German quite a bit younger than herself. She found him almost brutally honest, he gave her the truth right between the eyes. So when she asked him one day if he thought she looked her age (hoping for a compliment) he merely said "Yes, you look OLD. You have many lines on your face." She was gutted, but managed to laugh about it much later, after he dumped her!
