I've noticed this happening for a while now, but it never really hit me (or kinda weirded me out) until Today. There's this guy, Sergey in my Economics group. He's Russian, 28, married, and has a daughter that's 11. Things started off kind of nice. He'd offer to pay for my lunch some days when I didn't have any small cash with me or if my student card was out of money. No biggie, I always offered to pay him back but he always insisted that it wasn't a big deal. So I just kind of let it go. Then it started to get into things like me saying "I miss this and this from America"...and then he comes in a few days later with that specific thing for me. Nice surprise of course, and I naturally thanked him and offered to pay...but no. Today just kind of topped it off a little bit. He tried to hold my hand while we were walking out of the Commons area after eating lunch. We eat with eachother (a whole group of us eats together)...I didn't really know what to do, so I just squeezed his hand in a friendly way and then let go. Now...I'm just kind of weirded out by it, since I know that he's married and I know that he has a little girl. I didn't want to make a big deal out of it in front of everybody, but I have no clue how to approach him about this! Sure, it's flattering and everything - but still! I know that he's not happy in his marriage. He always complains about his wife and how he's looking forward to when he can leave Coburg so he can also leave her. I guess the story kind of goes like this: He was 17 and his wife was 15 when she got pregnant with their daughter. Their parents forced them to marry, and they have basically been staying together for their daughter. Any advice on how to confront somebody about this? PS: I haven't told Bart about the holding hand thing (I let him know about the lunch thing and he didn't really think it was a big deal) but I plan to when he comes home! He won't be mad, since I wasn't the one that initiated the flirting...Hopefully he'll have some wise words for me!
