If someone feels that a subject is highly emotive to them, do you think that some part of them expects that it should be to you too?

Yup, I'm pretty sure that everyone expects at least a little bit of emotional empathy when talking about topics that are dear to themselves.
Sometimes that gets pretty tough though, and I'd assume that more often than not, people pretend to care a lot more than they actually do just to not dissatisfy the other person. At least I often catch myself doing that, or that's what I feel when observing others.
So I'll go with yes. To a certain degree. Because we always expect the other person to care as well, since we don't actually want to talk about any of the topics we like if we feel like nobody cared.
Hope that made sense1
