Dear Teachers,

1. Although I'm dead because of hungry outside the streets, I also don't need you to care for me.

2. You and I now are two different worlds and have different positons in society. You just forget me and find another good man for ya.

- Are these natural?

Thanks very much to Teachers,

Hi Steven

1. Although I'm dead because of hungry outside the streets, I also don't need you to care for me. I'm sorry, but I don't know what you are trying to say. You're dead? What are hungry streets?

2. You and I now are in two different worlds and have different positons in society. You just forget about (optional) me and find another good man for yourself.

I wouldn't say #2 is entirely natural - it sounds more like a situation in a Jane Austen book, but it's okay.
Not too good. Many errors. Perhaps:

1. Although I'm dying of hunger out in the streets, I don't need you to care for me.

2. You and I now are of different worlds and have different positions in society. Just forget me and find another good man for you.

Can it be,
"Even though I was dead of my hunger out in the streets, I wouldn't need you to care of me" ?
Hi,

Can it be,
"Even though I was dead of my hunger out in the streets, I wouldn't need you to care of me" ?


Much better. I suggest "Even if I were dying of hunger out in the streets, I wouldn't need you to care of me."

Don't say 'If I was dead', because obviously you wouldn't need anybodythen. Emotion: smile

Hi Clive

Much better. I suggest "Even if I were dying of hunger out in the streets, I wouldn't need you to care of me."

Should 'to care of me' be 'to take care of me' or 'to care for me' instead.? Or is 'to care of me' old English? Or is the phrase correct even in modern English?

Thanks in advance

Best wishes

Thanks again Clive,
Well, I was thinking in my language at that moment rather than English. Emotion: smile
Hope you're having a great day,
Hi,

"Even if I were dying of hunger out in the streets, I wouldn't need you to care of me."

Should 'to care of me' be 'to take care of me' or 'to care for me' instead.? Yes, either, but most commonly the former. I overlooked that part of the sentence. Thanks.

Best wishes, Clive
Another suggestion: ( The first sentence is about an imagination I think, but I couldn't make the proper tense to express the imagination. )
Even if I would die of hunger out in the streets, I wouldn't need you to care of me.

And another question:
I typed "my hunger" to stress the hunger that I am having. Well, of course I can't die of your hunger but, is it possible to say "my" just to stress it ?
