Can you learn to care about somebody if they are your acquaintance? I guess they are your acquaintance. I never did learn the real meaning of friendships?

It's always good to care about a person as a PERSON.

^^^unfortunately, in this world most people seem to care only for what another person CAN DO for them [cold pricklies] and not care about them as a person [warm fuzzies].

I've noticed that same sad fact. It's pretty bad when it happens in the family unit. I care for people as people and not as performers.

Yes, we are answering your question.

The point is: It's always good to care about somebody, even if that somebody is a total stranger.

Of course, one can have an acquaintance who can later become a friend, or even a boyfriend/girlfriend.

You don't have to "learn" to care for an acquaintance because you already care about that person (hopefully)

You could, however, start caring MORE for the person should that person become a friend or boyfriend/girlfriend.

But you don't LEARN to care for that person. You care for that person because you care for that person. No learning required.

Yeah you can. I tend to care about people I meet even if I don't much about them. Sometime it's not the other way around though but I don't mind for the most part.

Maybe I said it the wrong way, I can have trouble writing the right way.

This woman I know who works at the coffee house, I really like talking to her, I hope we become friends. I don't talk to too many people in my town.

I hope you become friends, too.

Sometimes I/we click or connect with someone and think more would be nice.

Sometimes it is.

Enjoy each time and moment.
