you.

-kun is normally used for boys your age or younger, however my friend's wife (who is younger

than him) always refers to him as Joe-kun.

-san should be used if you are referring to an older

person...or someone you want to show respect to and/or you don't know their age. (Just to be safe...if you

don't know...I would use "san"). <!--QuoteEnd--></td></tr></table><div

Hm. Thanks for the help, guys.

But what is "same

age"?? Because I have some friends that are 20, 21, 26. I call my twenty-year-old friend

"...-kun" and he doesn't seem to be weirded out, so I guess that's alright?

Haha I

guess they don't expect much since I don't look particularly Japanese [Image: tongue.gif] <!--QuoteEnd--></td></tr></table><div

If your friend(s) are okay with it...then don't worry about it

Sachi-chan. I call my friend Jon "mother f*cker all the time...he doesn't seem to mind (ha,ha,ha!)
