I have recently become really good friends with a guy that I work with. he is Mexican from mexico and I am white. he doesn't speak very good English and I don't speak very good Spanish but we can understand each other. the problem is that last week he made a move and gave me a necklace and asked for my number. I gave it to him and since then he has called me every night and I see him everyday at work. my family doesn't approve of my dating anyone out of my race. they also feel like I need someone that can support me better than he can. I don't want to lead him on into thinking we can be anything else than friends until I am sure what I really feel for him. I am so torn because he makes me so happy I always have a smile on my face around him but then my family is very important to me. what do I do about him in the mean time? have I already let him think more since I answer when he calls and accepted the necklace?

You are right in wanting to wait before you know how you feel about him. Unless you are sure you have feelings for him, I wouldn't suggest putting too much pressure on your family about this.
It is sweet, though, that he bought you the necklace and that you two are still finding a way to communicate with each other. Just let him know that you need to take things slowly to figure out how you feel. I'd hope that eventually, if you do like him, that your family will accept that.1
