I don't know whether to comfort him or not?
I like this guy and we are close, but not dating. He's older than me by a fair bit, and our families have known each other for a very long time.
Anyhow, I really like him, but I don't know whether he feels the same way (we kissed once).
He's the kind of guy that although has a strong front, he isn't very confident in himself, and this one guy always makes nasty comments to him absent-mindedly.
I hate to see him (the guy I like) upset, and I want to comfort him, but I don't know how, or even if I should. Would he just find me irritating?
So the question is: Should I comfort him when he is upset like that? Or should I give him space. and If I should comfort him, how would I go about doing that in a way that is not girlfriendish, but a little more than friendish? if that makes any sense.
What's Your Opinion?
