    Need an outsider's view. Never been good with signals (sending or receiving).

    Took a tin of cookies to my crush & his staff. When greeting, I got a side hug. Gave his treats & card. 1st thing noticed was that I had more variety to this year’s tin. After chatting some, he showed my bro & me upstairs. He has a workshop in half & the other half is empty. He’s thinking about making it an entertainment room.
    When leaving, he was crouched down by the front door (by a newborn). He said bye to my bro & shook his hand. Was getting ready to get a hand shake. He surprised me with patting my arm & said good bye. I ended up looking into his eyes. Not sure in whether my pupils dialated or not. Kind of shocked that I did look into his eyes. I don’t do that often when we are talking.
    Hate reading into things. When I have gotten pats, it has been 2 pats.
    Today’s text “Merry Christmas my friend! Hope that u have a great one w/ ur family & friends.” “Thank you! – thank you for the treats, & encouragement the past year – I hope u & ur crew are having a great Christmas too!”

    What are your thoughts on this? More like friends, or could there be something more?

    You called him a friend in your text to him. That was a big mistake if you ever wanted more. Now he thinks you only think of him as a friend.

    Would there be a way of fixing that? Though, if it turns out that way, I guess I would not mind so much. I would like to try and share my feelings with him. Can anyone give me some help or pointers on how to read signals??

    I feel like you’re reading into a lot of small things here that may or may not be nothing. How old are you both? Are you close otherwise? I feel like texting him for a catch up might be a good start

    I do tend to do that, reading into things. I am late 20s and he is early 30s.

    Haha, sweet you’re my age then. Yup, thinking way too much here haha 🙂 Text him for a catch up, give him a short but cleralyt positive indicator and go from there
