Compliment or insult? Free chocolate!


Today a guy came up to me at the university and gave me a magazine titled "Helpful for people living alone". I am not sure if he intended it as a compliment, as in "You look 20 years younger than you are, like a student who just moved to his first apartment"; or if it was insulting "You must surely live a sad lonely life, no one could possibly want to live with you".


But it came with chocolate, so even though he was insultingly correct about my lonely life, at least I got some free chocolate! The chocolate was "passing the exam"-chocolate (which was very similar to normal chocolate), which might indicate that he thought I looked half my age.
