The other day at my newish job was a nightmare, this experience was shared with a male co-worker. One who I do admit is very handsome. We both had a very stressful day; he was waiting for me beyond his working time to wait for me and check that I was alright. He gave me a hug and squeeze when he could see I was a little stressed. I am fine with hugs/touch at the workplace (when the time/situation is right) but just wondering if that is the norm for most. Afterwards we walked out of the office and stood chatting for a good 10 mins or more even though he had lots going on that eve. We were mostly chatting about ourselves/lives outside of work. He seemed to enjoy chatting to me even though he had places/things to get to. Also once he gave me some praise and told me that he told the manager about my progress. Also he has helped me out a bit last week. Maybe I am reading a little bit much into it but does it sound like he may be interested?

It is not a big deal either way, I am just curious as to other people’s interpretations really.

He sounds a supportive colleague but I wouldn't necessarily say he was interested in you.
Is there anything else that makes you think he's interested in you?

At this point I think you might be reading too much into it. Are you both single? I think you should just continue on in a professional manner and see how things develop.

I think he sounds like a supportive colleague based on what you've said. If you want more, I think you'll have to ask him

You are reading too much into it. Colleagues often support each other after nightmarish days. It doesn't mean anything but solidarity.
