how do you tell the difference in someone who is "pedifile-ish" or just friendly with an attraction to you?
ive known this guy about 3 months. he tells me he thinks im hott and stuff, but also that im like one of his best friends [especially at work]. and hes given me one hug but otherwise never laid a finger on me. we get along really well. basically acting like bro and sis, i mean were tight. hes never done or said anything suggestive. but i have a hard time with trust ya know, so i just want opinions..
Additional info, added Thursday May 24 2007, 7:57 pm: and yeah btw im 16 and hes just turned 33.
ive been told on several occasions that im a natural flirt and i really dont even notice when im doing it [same with him actually]. he doesnt seem to me to be the pedifile type, i dont really get that feeling, but i was just brought up to think the worst, ya know?.

So, using the term pedifile means he is an adult (older man) and you are a teenager?
Pedifiles can be your best friend in order to gain your trust and friendship, then sexually attack you when the opportunity presents itself.
Do not allow him to hug you or touch you.
And personally, if you are asking yourself (and us here) the question-- then it's your own gut instinct that is warning you...

It sounds as though you're just really good friends though and friends hug sometimes right?
I think you should just watch out incase he starts touching you differently to normal or anything like that. He's probably just being friendly 'cos he thinks you're attractive. [ x_s_a_r_a_h_x's advice column | Ask x_s_a_r_a_h_x A Question ]
