Basically a few months back a new manager started at my work place, he frequently compliments me, says he likes me bla bla bla but he is my boss! We are both single, he is recently divorced. I'm just finding it hard why he's clung on to me, I'm nothing special, but he never asks me out or anything but he's getting into my head... wwud?
Give him a wide berth. No matter how much you think he is different, he isn't. He's just a sleazy man who knows that what he is doing is inappropriate and an abuse of his position of authority over you.
Do not engage.
FWIW, if he were really interested, he would have spoken to you about this properly and not relied on anbiguous banter.
This is what I've been thinking, I've even told him some of his comments are inappropriate but he just laughs it off. I'll not engage, to be honest he comes across as a player. When I asked him if he was married as I assumed he was he replied no divorced twice...
