Well I kind of agree. Telling someone they "look like the kind of person who..." could easily be taken offensively.
One time a guy used the opener "you look Mexican (I'm half south american and a quarter Croatian) but don't worry, I think Mexican girls are sexy. You got dat ass" Ummm what? My point: it could have been worse. It seems like your intention wasn't malicious.
Why would you insult the poor girl and expect a positive response?!
An insult would be a phrase like, "You look ugly," not "You look like you listen to specific music." I agree that OP shouldn't have made that assumption, but seriously, people need to learn to take off their diapers and put on some big kid underwear. Just because you don't like something doesn't mean it's the worst thing ever on the planet to everyone. We all have different tastes. It's time we all learned that.
I could see how she may've taken your assumption offensively, but if you were obviously trying to be friendly, there was no need for her to respond that way and walk off. She could have pointed out that she didn't like country music. I don't really think that YDI, but perhaps you should try to apologize and start over.
When the subject of music comes up I usually hear "I listen to a little bit of everything... except country" about 95% of the time. Guess it depends a bit in where you live though.
I live in West Virginia. A lot of people believe that everyone here loves country music. I don't. The sound of that shit makes me want to hurt something. I'm a rock/metal fan myself. Point is, don't make stereotypes. They tend to be wrong a good deal of the time.
Why don't you just ask her if she's inbred next time? jeez. FHL
