Someone told me he was thankful for being invited to my party. I guess saying "I was thankful" is used because the party is now over, so the feeling of being thankful faded away.
Would I answer "You are welcome"?
Or would I have to answer "You were welcome"?
Im a little bit unsure, since "You were welcome" could imply in my understanding that I'm not welcoming it anymore.
Is that right?
