We have this discussion in a board. A man was talking and he said this
The theory states that women have higher attractiveness level in their most fertile years 18-25 while men 26-35. In short we are "Late Bloomers". But still you need to improve yourself mentally, financially & emotionally
The guy, with "you" was refering to men. I'm from another country and I understood it right. Then a girl thought he was refering to her and took it in the wrong way like "you" refered to her, and that the guy was telling her to improve. Then the guy clarified, but the girl is still convinced this is gramatically wrong and than you can't use "you" to mean "men" (in this case) because that is gramatically wrong. is it? Can you give an explanation if it is gramatically valid to use "you" to refer to yourself when talking and not to another person?
