Fake sympathy is not acceptable..

I'd rather not recieve or give out fake sympathy...

Only when it comes from the heart it is right,otherwise you are just being two faced

But inquiring about someone whom u dont really know well (for example: someone in your building whom you meet in the elevator occassionally )when he is sick doesnt count as fake sympathy.. that is just being civil and nice to that person.

In my point of view, Fake sympathy is something completely different from this.When you ar showing sympathy towards your enemy, or someone you really hate..then that is fake sympathy and the person on the recieving end is most likely to know that it is you are not doing the person any favors or anything like that!!

It's sickening. Sure your sympathy might be fake but at least it shows
some civility.
Personally, I think it's all about manners. It's normal manners to show
sympathy to a sick person. Like in the old times (in Britain etc.),
everyone was ladylike and gentlemanly and I LOVED IT. TongueI just love the politeness and civility people had in the old times that is sorely missing now.
Just my POV.


Exactly !

fake sympathy.... is not sympathy!!!even if u say something good to someone without meanin it may not make diffrence to u but the other may feel good abt it... but u should not use it for ur purpose...... better if u dont show it at all....

I agree with Sharila.

I dont think you need to be outright rude to anyone you dislike. If its a matter of being civil, just stay silent. You dont need to lash out at anyone. Even your so-called "enemy" may feel grateful that you didn't say anything (especially when you dont really feel sorry).

Personally i dont like fake sympathy. I get more aggrivated when a person who doesnt like me normally is acting nice cuz of the bad circumstances. As Sharila said.. instead of putting on an act, just keep ur mouth shut b4 giving out fake sympathy.
