I believe you mean the things you said, I think you were being very sincere. What's more, I agree with most of the things you said.

But rather than simply presenting your points, you take the role of the enlightened messiah, sent from the wilderness to teach her the error of her ways. It's pretentious, sanctimonious. It's as though you're talking to her from a higher plane. And it *really* bugs me because I often do the same thing.

If you disagree with her, say that you do, and give your reasons. Don't try to save her soul. Unless, of course, you're interested in starting your own religion.
