I feel I need to ask this question. Anybody can answer and I hope that you do.
How is treating someone with care and compassion, “too sweet”? Specifically the phrase was, “you are too sweet to me”.
I don’t get it. I wasn’t doing anything I would not do for any friend. Maybe I was being a bit romantic about it but not overly so.
Maybe some context?
She had a migraine. She is/was dealing with stress from another serious issue.
She has said she feels safe in my arms.
So, unable to really do anything other than be there for her, I said, “all I can think to do is hold you and let you know that you are safe in my arms.” This isn’t anything extraordinary. That’s just me being, well, me.
So why is that “too sweet to me”?
