    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Good afternoon, Mehrgan.

    (1) Here in the States, people often say:

    I am very sorry to hear that... .

    (2) One of our presidents was famous for always saying:

    I FEEL YOUR PAIN.


    Have a nice day!

    So many thanks for the reply, and good afternoon to you...(though it's 1:45 a.m. here! )

    And, one thing...Can "I feel for you!" be used at all while addressing the person we're feeling for? Thanks again...

    Yes, I believe you are 100% correct: Oh, I'm so sorry. I really feel for you.

    Have a nice day.
