5. some other responses in a similar situation which I think are very nice

I got these on another forum. They make me smile, and feel more comfortable about the whole thing.
I share them, perhaps they will be useful...
Also, I invited the same friend on a nature walk, (with/in a group) and he accepted happily; so I think this reassures him that I do like his company.
thank you for your feedback.

"I just love this kind of peace, this solitude. Perfect warm November day. An apple and a good book. I hope you're not looking for much conversation. I'm just kind of unwinding..."
Make it a 'zen moment' with a semi-stranger.
He neither takes nor gives. You speak your thoughts out loud. Then wish him a good evening and walk away.

Have you ever seen cats just sit with each other and not communicate ?
Sometimes people just want the presense of another person they trust nearby.
It's a Zen like experience.

Let me tell ya, one thing I'm sure of is that peace + sunshine + zen + happiness attracts people like moths to a flame! Just remember, when we are at peace, sometimes we are in a good position to share that. I'm sure your friend got more out of it than you know
