Ok, check this dictionary

[uncountable, plural] feeling (for somebody/something) sympathy or love for somebody/something

You have no feeling for the sufferings of others.

I still have feelings for her (= feel attracted to her in a romantic way).

Ok, it says "uncountable, plural" but the structure is in singular "feeling". Also, example is in singular "no feeling" not "no feelings"
