I know he cared professionally about me extremely a lot. I never ever doubted even for a moment that he did very much for me..And I am not concerned about the discontinuing part.. it was best for both of us and I agreed with him on that one.
Well, as you said maybe he did like me. He did write to me for 2 and a half years. But what I am scared of is, he is a very duty bound person.. so even if he never liked me, he would have still done the same. He is not the type to let his personal liking/disliking to interfere with helping when needed. See what I am getting at? He could have just said at the end I did like you as a person or something like that. That would have helped me a lot. Do you think I am asking too much? I did ask him explicitly if he atleast liked me a little bit, but he refused to comment either way. That is why it is so scary. I am just so scared that all these help he did was because he was just duty bound towards me and never liked me personally.
> That doesn't sound at all as if he didn't care about you. It sounds as if he was constrained by outside circumstances to discontinue your correspondence.
