Bad at the signals!
Find a Conversation

I met my friend about 4 years ago. He plays bass in my fave local band so naturally he has a ton of friends, both male and female. For the first 2 years we knew each other it was me the fan and he the musician. It wasn't until we started talking after shows and then seeing each other in social situations (we have mutual friends) that we noticed we had a lot in common, cooking, antiques, family values and of course music. We became better friends through PMing on FB too! Then things started to shift a bit when I would go to his shows. He started to be a bit more free with his “affections.” He would come off stage during a break and smack my rear or insert himself next to me, arm around my waist, while I would be talking to a group a people or find me after a show for a little one on one conversation. Then it happened! After a show in March of 2012, we greeted each other with what I was assuming would be the usual hug. Instead, I was greeted with a big kiss on the lips! It put me back on my heels to say the least! To this day, the kisses are still on the lips, are followed by very tight embraces, lots of eye contact and there has been a definite increase in touching (knees, hands, shoulders, etc) when we are sitting/standing next to one another. I can tell you this, there are times when the tension gets pretty tight when we get close to each other.
Now I have been out of the dating/flirting arena for some time and I have always been a bit bad at reading signals, so I have to know if this is just him being friendly or is he flirting with me?
