Older married man hints?
I would like some advice.
I am friendly and kind to most everyone, that being, affectionate too. I don't think over the top affectionate, but am a huggy type of woman.
Many of my friends are married, and I am friendly with both parties of the couples.
One of my married friends, C, when he greets me, asks me every time if I have a boyfriend yet. His hands linger longer than need be if we hug. And I often find him staring at me, then when I see him, he winks. He does have a history of infidelity.
My question is this: What does it mean when a married man asks if I'm seeing someone everytime we meet? Why is he asking me and what are his intentions? He is a good friend of mine, but I would never want to give him the wrong impression of my interests. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you.
Be wary of this man. If he was genuine, he wouldn't be giving you the eye and the come on. If you can state that he has a history of infidelity, then stay right away from him...it's that simple....and no..he isn't a good friend of yours.
You need to set some boundaries here, next time he does something that makes you uncomfortable or feels like hes flirting or may be coming on to you you need to shut it down. If he is your friend he should respect that. Just a simple "please don't do that, it makes me uncomfortable" should do it and if he defends it just reinforce it again "okay, but please don't do it again".
Of course you know what he's doing. He's "grooming" you. Dropping hints and being a real flirt.
He's pitiful, isn't he?
Laugh it off. Cut him off, including the hugs.
