Can anyone tell me why were is used with you but not he/she?
It still refers to only one person?
First person - singular: I
First person - singular: We
Second person, singular OR plural: you
Third person - singular: He, she, it
Third person - plural: Then
In most cases, it is the third person, singular that has a different form of the verb.
I run, we run, you run, they run -- but he runs.
In the case of "to be" there are more variations.
I am, I was
We are, we were
You are, you were
He is, he was
They are, you were
