    indirectly caring

    Dear teachers,
    Is the following sentence grammatically correct?

    I am indirectly caring.
    ["Caring" was used as an ajective.]

    Re: indirectly caring

    It doesn't make much sense without some context.

    indirectly caring

    If I am caring ["Caring" was used as an ajective.] and I just don't show it,

    can I say the following?
    I am indirectly caring.
    I am caring (indirectly).

    Re: indirectly caring

    The main problem here, for me, is that I have absolutely no idea what you mean by "indirectly caring". What are you trying to say?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
