I have a young male friend at work and we get on like a house on fire. We chat all day tease each other, play tricks etc. we share a lot of things, touch but not in a sexy way and have a lot of things in common. I am almost 30 years older than him but we just click. We are always together at work have in jokes and text a little out of work hours. What I find confusing is that we talk all day about everything, nothing is off limits but once 5pm rolls on we say good night and that’s it. No contact on weekends or holidays but I would like more contact but don’t want to seem like a clingy person but would to move things up a bit and see if he has feelings for me but always stop and think don’t be silly you are too old etc etc. and don’t want to upset the worm relationship as I love learning new things from him and about him. Is this normal to have a 5 day a week 8-5pm relationship with a young man ?
I think you already know this one – its obvious you like him more than you want to but at the same time are aware of a reality staring at you – he just might not be that into you. Its a work friendship – dont read too deeply into it. When a man is interested in you, he will pick up the balls to ask you. In this case, i really cant read any special indications from him beyond the fact that he finds you a good companion at work.
