    Smile feel warm/warmth

    In this fast-paced society, everyone feels pressure, while sometimes we feel warm/warmth when some people show concern and love for us.


    Since feel could be followed by a noun as in feels pressure, I couldn't figure out why I couldn't say feel warmth. Does feel warmth sound right to you? Thanks.

    Re: feel warm/warmth

    Warmth here is the feeling of "being comforted/encouraged" by something, nothing to do with feeling cold or not.

    ē noun 1 the quality, state, or sensation of being warm. 2 enthusiasm, affection, or kindness. 3 intensity of emotion.

    Re: feel warm/warmth

    It doesn't sound wrong to me, though I would use the adjective.
