    Default scare and scary

    Dear teachers,

    Is there any difference in meaning between these two sentences:

    1. You make me scary.
    2. You make me scare.

    Please help.

    Do you want to say that somebody frightens you? If so, "You make me scared" and "You scare me" are correct.
