It was March. My break was like the 13th till 20th. It was still snowing then and I had off since I lost my mom over spring break

Ah. Well then, it's totally understandable how you're concerned about whether a boy working at a deli is flirting with you, what with your mother newly dead and all.

It's nice to see how you kept your priorities staight.

Thank you. I'm sure 19 and never had much like having a boyfriend when I was growing up since I took care of her. So I can't tell the difference if he's trying to hint he likes me/me reading too much into it (I probably am)/ a guy not liking me at all. Just seemed different everytime I go there. He seems to treat me different compared to others

I guess it's up to you then.

If you think you might be interested in him, ask him if he'd like to go for coffee after work (or something similar)


keep in mind that a lot of people say hon/honey/hun without it meaning anything. it is very commonly said by service/retail staff in a lot of regions

I know some people say it without it meaning anything. But when he called me hun he seemed like he didn't want me to go. Idk. Like he gave me a bag with my food in it and instead of handing it over like a normal person would he held it out with both of u his hands and kept looking at me when I finally grabbed it he said take care hun which caught me off guard since he never called me hun before and I never heard him call abother customer that. His coworker was helping out a girl and he just stood around instead of waiting on her/ringing her up like he would for me. I feel like I'm over reading this a lot

A lot of us were very new to meeting people at nineteen and how to take what people said - I think most people are, no matter how smart they act. That's the thing - others are figuring out all this at the same time you are. He may be too (or not).

Do you know his name? I'm thinking I'd say hi, Mike (or whatever, and smile) when I saw him again. Maybe ask how he is, because you may be wondering about that.

That's the thing I learned once I got an afterschool job, to get off of my interest in me (I had sort of a closed life as you describe yours but not with your difficulty) and listen to other people.

If you're interested in him, talk to him.

Don't ask us about him - ask him.

Think it's a regional colloquilism, though I've only ever heard it from women. Like how some older people may say 'pop' instead of 'soda.' Got that one during basic training way back and it really stood out as odd. Smile

'Hun' struck me at first as kinda patronizing until I realized it was just a regional thing.
