"MB" still comes into the office to visit with me, still texts & calls me even after I told him the flirting needed to stop. He has abided by that but I can tell he still thinks of me more then just as a friend. During one of his phone calls to me a few weeks ago he said some things that really threw me. We were talking about all the stuff I still need to get done on my house. He told me not to stress over it because soon I would be moving into his place (I didn't reply at all). He also said that in a text once but put an lol after it. This time he said it very seriously without a chuckle of any kind. Same call: He was talking about his old style tv and I told him "that's why your working all the overtime, so you can buy a nice flat screen". Again, very seriously he said "no, I'm working overtime so I can buy you a ring and then I'll buy us a nice tv because you deserve one". Still thinking he couldn't possibly be serious I said jokingly..."you better work a LOT of OT because I want a massive one". But he knows me so well that he said that didn't even sound like me, because I'm not materialistic at all. I agreed and changed the subject. This past weekend he went to an oldies concert with some friends. While at the concert he texted me and made a joke about how ugly the crowd was. I replied "literally ugly or do you mean old like me, lol". Here was his reply to that: "your not that old...and your beautiful...and your cool as hell!!...you got nothing to worry about!...wish you were here with me...we'd have a good time". One of my friends was with me at the time and we both almost started crying. I was only kidding and wasn't worried about a thing! He is so sweet so that's what I texted him back. I honestly have never met a man that's made me this confused and dumbfounded. I'd ALMOST think he was falling in love with me except for the fact that we've never even had a date! I'm still keeping my cool and refuse to initiate the subject of going out since he is so worried about our age difference. This is a conflict with himself that he needs to figure out on his own. I'm also still trying to keep my self available for dating other men but I have to admit it's very hard when all I think about is how sweet he is and how much we have in common. It will be hard for any man to match his qualities let alone top them.
