    Does my sentence work?

    suppose there is a community that has two members - A and B.

    A has absolutely no affection for me, and B has lots of affection for me.

    I am trying to emphasize that the level of affection that I received from A is simply different than the level of affection that I received from B, rather than specifically mentioning that B has more affection for me than A.

    Would the sentence "The level of affection that I received from each member of the community was different" work in this case? Does the sentence make sense?

    Why not just say B likes me more than A does?
