I met a gentleman at locale store where he works about 12 years ago. Since then we have been saying hi asking about work health...etc. He was attached until four years ago. I was attracted to him since day one for 12 years ago. Two months ago I had a minor surgery, few weeks after I told him with what happened to me and he offered to let him know any thing that I need help for, and he gave me his phone numebr. Two weeks later I called him I asked for a help he came to help me and he gave me a squeeze big hug and kisses on my cheeks. He still waiting to ask him for more help.
My question is how can I tell weather this is pure friendship or more, on his side? Should I ask him what kind of friendship he would like to have with me, I do know what I want? (I would like to get to know him as a friend first and see what happens). How can I invite him to go for coffee or movies etc without showing him what I feel?
