Be fond of someone/something

Being fond of something is another way of saying you like the thing you are talking about. It's similar to being crazy about something, from yesterday's post, but with an added meaning of having a warm, cozy feeling toward it. You can also be fond of a person.

1. We're not very fond of our manager. He can be too strict sometimes.
2. He and his mother-in-law used to hate each other. Now they are very fond of each other.
3. She only takes taxis; she's not too fond of the subway.
4. There's a lot of leftover Halloween candy at their house. Their kids have never been fond of candy even when they were small.
5. He doesn't like reality shows in general, but he's very fond of Survivor and The Amazing Race.
