Question à propos de Français (France)

When should you use tu and when should you use vous?

I am aware that vous should be used with strangers and tu with people you already know

But recently I have seen that some french people (maybe 2-3 years older to my age) start joking or laughing all of a sudden when I use vouvoyer, and some people (the same age group) take vouvoyer very seriously and disregard the use of tutoyer
Whereas some people are nice enough to say “tu peux me tutoyer” but I’m just really confused at this point 😓 is it really okay to use vous with someone you really don’t know? But has a small age gap?
