The “changing your guy” post got me wondering about how empathetic and/or sympathetic your guy is to you, or in general?
Four part question!!! I know… so complicated.
How does it vary? Is he more sympathetic/empathetic with you than with other people in general?
Just for clarification, I’ll post a great table that I just found on a site, as sometimes people confuse them. Plus, who wants to look it up themselves?? I certainly wouldn’t… I hate outside links. lol I’m so lazy.
ETA: Okay the stupid table apparently didn’t post, even though it pasted. So here’s the site (sorry!):
Here’s the quick and dirty:
Empathy: Understanding what someone else is feeling because you have experienced it yourself or can put yourself in their shoes.
Sympathy: Acknowledging a person’s emotional hardships and providing comfort and assurance.
