Do they like to be masoquists or why the react like that? I don’t get it.

There is this guy who works for a printing company and from time to time does some office works for our company. This guy and I had became nice acquaitances, therefore we chat over the messenger often for work reasons but also as acquaintances. He is married

If he can get her feeling sorry for him, he could use that as an excuse if he makes a move on her later.
