    I have a feeling about us. it's much older than you and me

    I have a feeling about us. it's much older than you and me. (without any context)

    What do these sentences mean? Does the second sentence mean "The feeling has been in my mind for a very long time"? / "I've felt this way for a very long time"?

    Without context, it's meaningless. We don't know what 'it' is. It's also unclear why he has a feeling about 'us', when he then references some random 'it'.

    There has to be a context.

    Why did you post those sentences? Where did you see them?

    Re: I have a feeling about us. it's much older than you and me

    Dear moderator, a friend asked me what this sentence means (without any context). One of his friends asked him, and he didn't know and asked me for help. But I didn't know either. So I came here and got to know the sentence has to have a context to mean something. Thank you so much for your help.

    Thank you. It would have been helpful if you had told us that in post #1.

    That information is the context in which you are asking the question.

    Thank you for your kind advice, Rover. I had thought it was a fixed idiom or something which I didn't know. Next time I will do as you told me. And to dear moderator emsr2d2: the Thank and Like buttons on my pages won't work, as often happens, perhaps because of the slow loading of pages on my end.
