Old people, you never can't please them. Shame he'll die alone because of his behaviour.
If he complains about no one caring about him, and someone actually is nice for once, and he responds like this? That's just absurd. I've seen it before,old people who turn bitter because they are lonely. When they finally find a conversationpartner they are rude and grumpy, and even surprised no one ever visits them anymore.
I can imagine you living up to your new creepy name by shouting, "BUT WHAT ABOUT EVERYTHING WE HAD?!" after him as he stomped off.
Why would you tell someone you just met you care about them just to make them feel better? He should've beat you down with the cane whilst screaming "Creepy stalker!", YDI.
Don't lie just "to be nice". Since you two are random strangers that just met, you don't really care about him. He knew that.
28, me too. I care about everyone. That's different from saying "I love you" to strangers. But why do people save random people every once in a while? Why do people volunteer at places or donate money or buy homeless people food or smile at strangers or get sad over the misfortune of those they have never met? Because they care.
47, "Because they care.". "Good" things can be done due to selfish or malicious reason. For example: "But why do people save random people every once in a while?" 1. "duty to rescue" 2. To massage their ego and feel "better" than everybody else. 3. To maintain impression of a "good" person 4. Because they're religious and are afraid of hell. 5. Because dealing with aftermatch if person won't be saved will be much more bothersome (police questioning, corpse removal, etc).
28- I think your boyfriend is right. In fact, I don't understand how you could possibly care about some random person you've just met. Perhaps that's just me. I always suspect that most people who say good things about random people, or act as if they even slightly matter to them, are lying, or at best doing it out of politeness. If they do, in fact, sincerely believe what they say, then they are incredibly naive.
