"my dear", you have personalised the person with the word "my". It irritates many people, most especially, people who are older in age or higher in status.
"dear madam/sir" the word "sir/madam" is the key word that would disarm the person you're addressing.

Pls always limit your comments to what you know , in the UK you can address anybody as 'Oh dear'

The fact that we all know that people misinterpret is reason enough for us to mind what we utter.

Bros some pple wahala dey tire me o!
Many times my younger ones replied my greetings with "how are you" but I see it normal by answering them with "I am fine".
Just because the guy used " my" with the use of dear to greet her then suddenly there was an outburst. I think the "my" is the problem.
God bless pple like us who know how to relate with pple.

I know that the word is used even in official letters, but what I don't understand is how nobody is talking about the guy being incarcerated for using the word 'dear' while addressing another man's wife. The guy was just treated in an unjust manner because he found himself in a strange environment.

I think " dear " is just enough " my dear " sound personalized I mean dictionary stating!!!!!!! If someone or something is dear to you, it means you hold them or it very close to your heart. So i take the woman got the wrong impression and reacted stupidly.

Kylce042:Well, it's just better to address it to someone close to avoid hullabaloo.
