hello everyone I need some advice i would usually ask someone close to me for advice but i cant really trust them with this. Sorry its so long i want to give the full picture so everyone can give the best advice they can. I recentlty started haning out at the bar i work at where my aunt is a bartender the 1st time i was there I spent the night talking to a close friend of my aunt and uncles and he was really cool he told me he would "protect" me from all the losers in the bar which was great he bought me drinks and kept me company. The next time at the bar i purposley went on a night he was working again he gave me lots of attention told me i made his night better and i stayed with him till closing time and helped him clean up he called me a cab bought me ciggarettes and offered to pay for my cab. Hes always telling me I can do anything I want there and just nice things so anyway same thing the week after i went on a night he worked same night each week and we hung out he spends alot of time talking to me and i stayed this time much past closing time and we cleaned up and sat and had a few drinks together we got in a little trouble for being there so late but he said he didnt care we called a cab and went outside to wait because i had so much to drink i was kinda leaning on him outside and he had his arm around me and then the cab came and i went home i seen him a few days later and apologized for being drunk he said he didnt think i was drunk told me when he was working and said feel free to come get drunk lol i went when he told me and not many people were there so said i might leave he asked if i had something else to do because i could do what i wanted but he likes it when im there however a little while later in the night an old "friend" came in and he didnt have as much attention to give me but he did make some effort. Last weekend i went in and we hung out he told me i looked nice and same thing we talked all night he bought me drinks out of his tip money told me if i needed anything to ask and he would give me the money and i told him i was glad he worked and that i had asked and basically he knows i only go in when hes there and i like his company. so again i was there till closing and we hung out and he kept saying ok we can go in 20 minutes and every 20 minutes he would say 20 more lol Ive noticed a few times that we was looking at me from the other side of the room and he just really makes me feel special whether hes telling me i can do whateva i want or buying me drinks hes just a great guy. However because hes a friend of the family im afraid he gives me this attention because he sees it as taking care of me or something like that. Hes a pretty outgoing person anyway but he really seems to give me a lot of attention and hes always asking for hugs i recently seen him at a wake for a family member and he came right over and asked if he could do anything for me and then he asked for a hug but its weird because he kisses me on the head which is fine and i can understand but again I would like to know what you all think about this. Hes made a few comments to me that could be taken as he knows i like him and last week he was telling me he introuduced me to a few nice guys and i laughed and he said well IM a nice guy. I gave him my # because he was wondering how one of my sick relatives was and didnt want to keep bothering my aunt he didnt ask for the # i just gave it to him but he mentioned being at the bar the next night maybe and i told him to call me if he was gonna be there but he was there and he didnt call he said he left really early at 8 or 9
he always seems really interested in me and remembers things like what i was wearing last time i seen him if hes talking to someone else and its about old times he will say hey i dont like to leave her out of the convo and he makes me happy but i wanna know if sounds like he likes me or if hes just being nice to me
Im just afraid im taking it all wrong and i dont want to do anything to make me look stupid please help does this guy like me or what????
