Dear Sambag,

I am hoping you can give me any kind of advice on how to handle the situation I am in.

I am a 30 yo man, and there’s this 18 yo guy who started in my department for the summer. Now before I begin, I will say that I know there are some serious issues with someone who is 30 yo dating an 18 yo, but I’m not really asking if I should pursue him or not, I really don’t want to.

What I am asking, is how do I handle someone that age who looks at me with eyes of desire, and talks to me in a way like he is kind of flirting? I really think he is just drawn to my positive attitude/energy, and is just confused by it or something…that being said I can’t help but feel my heart flutter when he looks at me like that, and when we talk.

I thought maybe I should just stop talking to him, or looking him in the eyes, but that feels rude to me and isn’t really my personality. Plus, he seems like he may be mildly depressed or something, and I wouldn’t want my sudden lack of attention to make him think there’s something wrong with him as a person.

James

Dear James,

I would just remain friendly when he approaches you, but never go out of your way to say hi or interact with him. Always stay professional and keep composure no matter what, and keep the amount of social time limited and with groups.

But I’ll stop there and let our readers weigh in. Please share your advice in the Comments below.
