    The first faux pas I remember making was when I was about seven years old. I don’t know why I asked my grandmother’s friend how old she was, but in the kindest way possible she told me that one ought never to ask a grown lady her age (and that children were the exception in being asked). I took that to heart and I was mindful about not asking the age question from that day to this. She and I were alone for my piano lesson, or my grandmother would have been there and quickly agreed with her friend.

    I very stupidly asked one very very pregnant looking acquaintance what’s her due date and my other friends quickly diverted topic. I knew I did big mistake and asked in private later on what’s the matter and my friend explained the other young lady is on dialysis and waiting for a kidney donor. Learnt my lesson. We all are still good friends and lady is doing fine now And all this was 10 years before. Never ask if someone is pregnant. Never. Ever.

    This is so right. A lot of people asked anything they had in their mind, without considering what people might think for a long day, and they blamed them because they are weak and sensitive. I remember can't sleep because someone said i ate too much... I'm not even that fat..

    I used to ask people how old they were when their life stories didn’t match how young they looked. I wasn’t careful with this because in my mind I was complimenting them on looking so young. Now that I am in that position (looking a lot younger than I am) I find it very irritating because as popular as it is to look younger these days, I would prefer to look my age.

    It’s actually funny in the cultural difference between the western world and my Korean roots because in Korea, they ask about age all the time because they need to know if someone is older or younger to see if they need to use honorifics and formal speech or not. And Korean people also always point out if you gained or lost weight ALL THE TIME.

It makes me uncomfortable every time, I sometimes lie and say yes it’s my natural color just to see people’s reaction and I get a lots of “really?” to top it off. I notice that specially women get a sense of relief to know that ones hair has in some way been altered rather than been like that naturally. It’s kinda of an evil question in a sense

    The age question is cultural. In South Korea people have to know the age of people so they know how to address the person. I think is a beautiful way of interacting with others since you behave more respectfully towards older people. Unfortunately most people feel ashamed of their age in most of other countries :(

My sister (16 years old) won’t know that for a looong time though, she’s very chatty about everything. So no, in Germany you don’t talk about your salary.

    I had a friend who was pregnant and the baby died while in the womb. She and her spouse decided not to have a D&C for medical reasons and allow her body to just reabsorb the fetus. So she LOOKED pregnant, but wasn't going to give birth. It was an unusual situation, but definitely awkward if she was asked that question. Anna is SO RIGHT on that question. MYOB!

    I get asked the "why are you single?* Question all the time by my family it's so rude. I can not control the fact that I haven't found anyone who peaks my interest and frankly it's a little hurtful when they ask. I also hate it when men try to get someone (mostly women) to talk about politics. It almost feels like they want to test your intelligence and prove that they are superior. My political opinions are for me to know and for you to never find out.

    Personally, I’m sincerely very interested if the person I like or I’m going to be friends with, has a wish to be a parent to make sure we share the same priorities and values for life. It’s hard for me not to ask. But I never want to make them uncomfortable at any occasion. I’ve met some people who depreciated mothers and motherhood so I try to avoid them at all. I find peace in looking at real and well-known power mothers, both loving and caring and successful in what they are doing for life. So I ask myself - why need validation from others if there is already a source of motivation and inspiration?

    If someone asks me if I have finished my bac., I immediately answer; of course, I have a recycling bac; I have a little rebel side and I am not very elegant in my answers. Sometimes, I regret my impulsive side, but the answers come automatically. Sometimes I can say; it was a joke.
