    Re: boastful person?

    .
    1. A man who is too proud of himself/herself-can I say he/she is boastful? -- Yes, if he talks about it. How about conceited or arrogant?

    2. A women who is too good or who is easily deceived by other people- she is innocent? -- I would use naive.

    3. A man/or a woman who understnads me so well and has common interests like soul mate. can i say he and i are compatible( can i say compatible betweenthe same sex??) -- I think compatible would work, but congenial or simpatico would be better for same-sex nonsexual relationships.
