Help needed for bad english

Postby Fakeblue » Thu Mar 06, 2008 7:36 am

Can someone help me translate that sentence ?
English is not my native tongue.

Does a guy telling you 'You come accross as a serious person'

has already made a judgment on you being a serious person, I mean is he positive about your seriousness or is he just wondering 'that guy looks serious' ?

Thanks a lot

Im not sure but i think that Neal Schon and John Waite were in that band and maybe a couple other dudes from Journey. They had that cheesy ballad " When i see you smile " :D . Glad i could help.

IMO the thought is already imbedded in the person replying in that manner - it's not just a look.

He is interpreting your interactions and using that to surmise your personality. Perhaps he is not all that familiar with the barrier that language interpretation can create...

It is difficult to surmise his intent due to the relative obscurity of the statement. There would need to be much more elaboration to give you any idea about the inference...
