Should I use "você" with young people or "o senhor" "a senhora"? Thanks everyone. That clears it up. Since I'm nearly 50, I guess I'll be using você more often =) muito obrigada

"Você" always!!! a little rule to use "Senhor (a)" can be, when you talk with people much older than you, or your boss, or in a ceremony with autoritys.

"Você" is much better. Even some older people don't like to be called "senhor" or "senhora". But it's a sign of respect, no problem. Anyway, for young people "você" is definately better.

O senhor / A senhora is a formal way of address people. You use it when speaking to people you don't know or in formal situations (business, purchasing, dealing with authorities, etc...)
