    In this case he has to provide CONTEXT. Am right or am I right?

    Yeah! I don't exactly know when to switch to informal. A Russian guy showed up in my Hapkido class the other day so I decided to use him for practice and I got a weird vibe when I switched to ты on him.

    Этот русский, наверное, недавно приехал. Когда мой сын невинно обращается на "ты" к малознакомому человеку, я невольно внутренне сжимаюсь: пугаюсь, что человек воспримет это как знак неуважения.

    I would say stick to вы and use only ты when you do know the person you're talking to. Same way with all the languages that have this formal/informal thing.
    You could easily get an answer which would be like "excuse me but I don't recall breeding pigs with you".

    Well. We know she's a forigner student not an old lady and he asks her to see movie with him that looks like an informal offer (it's more informal if he asks her out like Milanya thinks) so I decided it's an informal conversation and "ты" would fit better here.

    No way. Your guess isn't any better then mine without the context.

    Being an Aussie, this formal/informal stuff does not fly. In australia everyone is equal as in "we are all mates". For example; when you get into a taxi in Australia, you should get into the front seat with the driver and talk to him. If you get into the back he will think that you are an "uppity snob". Of course if you are with a woman on a date it is quite alright to sit in the back with her and leave the driver up front by himself.

    I guess you don't have creepy taxi drivers there.
    I come to represent and carve my name within your chest.

    We don't have bullet proof glass in taxis either.

    There is a ritual about switching over to ты called пить брудершафт. If you don't do it, you could find the other party objecting, like this:

    АНДРЕЙ. Вы можете не хамить?

    АСЯ. Кому?

    АНДРЕЙ. Мне! Я ведь еще не заключенный.

    АСЯ. Во дает! Я хамлю! Ну ты и борзой, первый раз такого вижу. Я хамлю! Это ж надо такое придумать - вот девочки посмеются! Слушай, милок, ты хоть понимаешь, куда попал?

    АНДРЕЙ. Я прошу вас не тыкать, я с вами на брудершафт не пил!

    АСЯ. А тебе никто и не предлагал. И долго не предложат! Я хамлю!

    АНДРЕЙ. Послушайте, вы! Оставьте меня в покое! Уходите, прошу вас! Я устал, я спать хочу.

    =;^)

    It works only for a man with a woman. Two men don't drink на брундершафт, they just drink vodka the usual way :)

    Here's the same but you don't have to talk to a driver.

    I say ты, never Вы. I would only use Вы in very formal contexts, like talking to a customs officer.
