Approaching someone in Hebrew correctly depends on two factors - gender and number (plural or singular). This is why we actually have 4 ways to ask "how are you" in Hebrew:
asking a female - "ma shlomekh?"
asking a male - "ma shlomkha?"
asking a group of females - "ma shlomkhen?"
asking a group of males - "ma shlomkhem?"
I hope that helps :)
Hi Andrea Eisenberg and Danielle,
Thanks for commenting!
Note that the gender of the speaker and the gender of the receiver are two different topics. Here, there's no problem in the phrase "ma shlomkha?" said by a woman. This is simply how one (woman or man) would ask a man "how are you?"
The gender of the speaker is important when talking about oneself - as in "I'm walking" - here, a man would say "אני הולך" (ani holekh) while a woman would say "אני הולכת" (ani holekhet)
Is this clearer now? Please let me know if a further explanation is needed 👍

Good revision. I knew all except the last two. Thank you for these messages.
you are so right Andrea!!!
They really need to have the proper gender The woman is saying ohev, when she would say ohevet. And two women saying Mah shlomcha when they would say Mah shlomech?
