Danger! Poison Ivy Ahead!
"You can look but you better not touch!"
Measles make you bumpy
And mumps'll make you lumpy
And chicken pox'll make you jump and twitch
A common cold'll fool ya
And whooping cough can cool ya
But poison ivy, Lord'll make you itch!!
Poison ivy-y-y-y-y ... Poison ivy-y-y-y-y

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

Make the guac, give him credit and then turn your back on this situation. Do not follow up.
I was always a big flirt at work. The good thing is that every lady I flirted with saw me flirting with the rest of them and knew it was never serious. Then I flirted with the wrong one and got a reprimand from HR.
Just don't.It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

Bah, he is talking to me in Spanish now and asking if I want to go see Andrea Bocelli in concert. I said, Nah, tickets are too expensive and *I* don't want to pay that kind of money. He looked confused, but got it. Yesterday I was playing Bocelli songs on my iPod at work and he listened to a bit with me. (We have the same taste in music)
C'est la vie.

Any way that you can arrange a transfer for him? That might solve the problem. Or if he does a really super job, maybe you can unobtrusively help get a promotion for him. Then you'll be equals and that nasty little part about you being his work superior is eliminated.
Also don't forget that a true friendship can be more lasting than a romance. I still have buddies that send me emails from St Louis, both clients and fellow employees. They were buddies, nothing more, but true friends.
It sounds like you have a nice relationship with him. Keep it cool and just enjoy it, but be careful to not give the office gossips any ammo.
