    Ive known this guy at work for around 3 months now and have gotten really close to him over the last month. We hug and he occasionally gives me a kiss on the cheek, although sometimes I feel a but uncomfortable about a kiss but other times I don't mind.

    He has said he likes me but I do not like him in that way, whereas he does. Today before he left we were talking and he was telling me how bad his homelife was and some of his problems he has to deal with and it made me feel very sorry for him.

    He said before I went that he'll miss me, because I'm not in until monday, and asked if I'll miss him and I said I don't know, to which he replied send me a blank text if you do miss me.

    But I don't know if I should text him even though I am going to miss him a bit, like I always look forward to seeing him on the monday. But what I don't want for him to think I miss him and encourage him and then I end up getting a bit more uncomfortable around him, even though I kind of enjoy it if that makes sense? And I also don't want to text him just because I know he has a rubbish home life and I thought at least he'll have something that makes him a bit happy, which something I thought I'd do.

    So what should I do? Should I text him when I miss him and when I'm thinking about him or just leave it and pretend I didn't miss him, even though it might make him feel even worse about everything?

    If you don't like him in that way, don't lead him on. By all means send a friendly text, but I don't think you should do the blank text thing

    If you text him he will definitely think you like him. Just send him a text asking how he is doing or something, but don't bait him as that will only result in more disappointment (for him)
