    Smile Where have you been all my life

    Episode:

    A message therapist, Gregory, was giving his service to his client, who was very satisfied.

    Client said, "Oh, Gregory... where have you been all my life"?

    Question:

    If I were Gregory, how should I answer it?

    "Where have you been all my life? " is just a compliment here, isn't it?

    ****

    Thanks in advance!

    There is no specific answer - as you suggest, it is a compliment.

    Gregory could say "Just waiting for you" or "Oh, around and about".

    Hi Anglika,

    Thank you for your answer.

    Someone told me this before, but I didn't realized it was no more than a compliment at that time. I just answered him literally, I have been in...

    Re: Where have you been all my life

    You mean: A massage therapist . . .

    The comment meant: "This feels so good, how did I live my whole life without ever getting this service from you?"

    A reply might be: "I'm glad that you are feeling better."
