    Please check this letter.

    You’re unlike anyone else. You're the best person in Saudi society. And you’re incredible in every way, as a friend, classmate, and colleague. You always treat me with human dignity, better than anyone else. You (also) care about and listen to what I have to say. You never argue to win; rather, you want to learn and strength connections, and, therefore, it helps us get on really well together.

    My relationship with you is a game changer in my life, and this, for me, much more rewarding. For years, you have been helpful and really friendly; you are one of a million. You were, and still are, the sort of man that I really like most—a decent human being and really a great man. Thank you.


    Would you improve that letter?

    What do you mean by "best"? Nicest? Most helpful? Most polite? Most successful? Richest?
