I decided to dont call you(misters), Mr .
for example i will call after this time:
Shahab instead of Mr Shahab
Wouter instead of Mr Wouter
Michael instead of Mr Michael
James instead of Mr James
and....
please dont think that i am an impolite girl.
I thought it is better to speak in this way .
maybe you laughed to me , no problem .
Regards

I dont think anybody will think it is impolite, Elnaz.
That is how we all talk, in the West.;)

Its not impolite , but would be a little rude for some people.
But , for me , its better , because I don't feel good when someone use Mr. at my first name , and not my last.
so Shahab is better .
Feel free to call me Shahab .

We only call old men, Mr here. But even old men often ask to be called by their first name.;)

It is not so important.
But, I am curious, about how people behave in Iran, so I ask. ;)
