    Unhappy The use of amiability

    Jane's amiability certainly made one wanting to approach her.
    or
    Jane's amiability certainly made one wanting to get close to her.

    Are these correct? I'm not sure whether I write these sentence correctly or not. Please advise. Thanks.

    They both sound fine to me even though the first one sounds a bit long winded. To get around that one, you may simply use the word "approachable" instead:


    Jane's amiability/good nature/ certainly made her very approachable.
    ( or made people feel comfortable around her..?)

    how is that?

    On top of what Natalie said, the second verb is conjugated incorrectly. It should be in the subjunctive.

    Jane's amiability certainly made one want to approach her.
    or
    Jane's amiability certainly made one want to get close to her

    -Nah-
