Maybe this just sounds weirder on the page than it did in reality, but I do see Dakota Rube's point. But whether his interest in you is inappropriate or innocent, at the very least, he seems willfully committed to indulge his own emotional needs, even though he's well aware that his persistence in these matters makes you somewhat uncomfortable. Sounds like he needs a frank, unvarnished talking-to once and for all.
