“My work friend hugs me every time he sees me”

So there’s a guy I like at work. The other day he says to me, “Don’t misconstrue, but you are beautiful. You are very attractive. You got something”. What the heck does “you got something” mean? And how am I supposed to take his words?

He has been a friend to me up to this point, helping me through my divorce, giving me advice, but tainted heavily with him coaching me to get a divorce (my husband cheated), hugs me every time he sees me. Last time he hugged me, as he was letting me go, he ran his hand down the back of my arm and squeezed my hand. So I don’t know how to approach him now. Any help would be appreciated.

    If you are uncomfortable with the touching ask him to stop. It’s unprofessional and could potentially get you both fired in a corporate environment. If you are not just ask him. I would say he could be hitting on you or he could just be trying to support you through a hard time and the touchy kind of person.

    Sounds inappropriate and is clearly making you uncomfortable. He should pay attention to your none verbal cues if you pull away. If he ignores your responses try to avoid him. If that continues you may need to talk to him or someone higher if it escalates. I’m sorry he’s putting you in this situation when he knows your vulnerable right now
