How do you draw a line with a friend who has helped you gain a lot, but wants something more?
This guy that works with me at the shop has allowed me to ride my horse on his pasture, drink his beer, he's introduced me to some of his good friends and helped me find places to buy horse equipment, but he makes it blatantly obvious that he wants a fling. I don't want a fling with him--1) he's 20 years too old, 2) I only see him as a friend, 3) he could spill the beans at work one day. He has gradually worked his way up to sidling up to me and feeling down my back or over my hip and whatnot, and I KNOW he looks down my uniform shirt at work. He even asked me the other day, "Do you ever let those come out and play? When are you going to let me play with them??" I think I TRIED to tell him different, but I don't think he gets it. Is there a way I can politely shove him off? I don't want to hurt his feelings or be rude because he HAS done quite a bit for me.
