Thatís it.

They make us feel....something. Most people donít, frankly. It kind of sounds like this person made you feel bad, but important enough to him, otherwise, why would he bother? I have no way of knowing, of course, and I am by no means a social scientist, just another 61 year old fart who has had a few friends come and go over the years

I had an old friend of 30+ years exit my life because of Trumpy. Same sort of thing. He made me feel like he liked me and appreciated me, and perhaps he did. What I didnít know was that he was a racist and a xenophobe and willing to vote for an obvious fraud and charlatan because THAT guy made HIM feel......something.

Youíre better off. Plenty of people on this planet that want to know you and be good to you.
