Hi! I have a few questions about addressing again. Could someone please help me out?
1. If a person, with whom I have business relationship but we are not familar with each other, only sign given name in his letter each time, should I address him his given name or his surname with 'Mr'?
2. If a colleague whom I just got to know addressed my given name, can I address him his given name too? Or should I call him Mr. Peterson if without his permission to call him his given name?
3. If a forum member, whose screen name is abcde, responded to my post and signed his real name in his post, such as Mike Peterson, what did he mean usually?
Did he prompt me to address him Mr Peterson or Mike? Which one is appropriate addressing for him?
Searching for language:
Thank you very much for your answers and corrections of the grammar mistakes in my words.
Have a good one there.
