I have a crush on a 45-year-old man. I am 28. We have spent time together in group settings a few times, are friends on social media and in real life and we always have fun and lighthearted conversation, make each other laugh and seemingly just plain enjoy each other’s company. Can’t tell if there’s any flirting going on as I’ve been pretty laid-back and slow to make any flirtatious advances myself. (I read your blog and do my best to take your advice about observing the situation before making any rash conclusions.)
I guess what I’m looking for is some advice about how to take the next step, or even if I should. I’m not particularly concerned about the age difference, though it could very well be an issue for him. It’s too soon to tell what he thinks though and I am happy taking things one day at a time. First thing’s finding out if he’s interested in hanging out on a level that’s not just as friends.
Thanks in advance for your help!
