Hi ViVi. It sounds like you're having a normal empathic reaction to B, and vice versa. Learn to clear and shield your energy on a regular basis. Over time, you'll learn to "hear" which are your thoughts and emotions, and which aren't, and not react to them so easily. As long as you're human, you're going to be affected by peoples' emotions, and people will be affected by your emotions. We "feel" each other; it's how humans are hardwired. Those who are totally incapable of feeling others are usually labeled sociopathic, and eventually commit some kind of crime that lands them in prison. They sincerely won't "feel" they've done anything wrong, because they really don't
feel. So feelings, in a sense, help us maintain some semblance of social order and safety.
A lot of times we mistake common energy reactions like this for some kind of "mystic connection" between us and other people. You've probably experienced this many times before with other people and just never noticed it consciously, until now.

An added note here, it sounds like you don't know this person real well. I'm assuming B is an OK person, and not some weirdo. But I do have to say, though, please be on guard when dealing with all
online people. A person can say he or she is anybody
, living anywhere. They can concoct a whole a identity that's totally false
. There are predators who are very, very good at charading and acting like they really "get" you, "like nobody else does," in order to win over your trust. They'll have you believing you have some kind of mystical connection with them. Next thing you know, they want to meet you somewhere, and so on. Be careful. Don't divulge too much about yourself. Don't tell strangers your private business, vulnerabilities and other personal information; save that for the circle of real
people in your life who really
know you and care about you.In this video, psychiatrist Dr. Judith Orloff discusses signs of people variously called "empaths," or
"Highly Sensitive People (HSPs)." You might find that some of these symptoms sound very familiar.
