I Had To Block My Ex Boss. ಠ_ಠ

I had a lovely boss; he was a well respected man who was always happy, friendly and motivated us all. He was a joy to work with and for and was honestly the best boss I'd ever had. There was no inkling of him being a bit weird in any way! He also had a long term girlfriend and daughter which made him seem like a friendly family man. 
Then he randomly chose to leave for personal reasons and it upset me a bit but I just got on with life and braced myself for the next boss to come along.
Not long later, I got a friend request from him on Facebook. I thought that it wouldn't be a problem as he no longer works there so I accepted it. A while later, I got a message saying "hi" so I responded out of common courtesy. He then asked me if I'd work for him again if he got another job but I politely refused, believing that he wanted me to work for him because he thought I was a good worker. We continued talking and he then offered to meet up and exercise together! I again, politely refused but at this point, I had noticed that the conversation was getting a bit too informal and a bit too friendly. This guy is heavily overweight; it's clear he doesn't look at a gym, let alone use one. So it was odd that he was asking to meet up and exercise together.
He started questioning my statuses and what they meant but he eventually pushed it too far. He asked when my parents were out and I told him, but asked him why he wanted to know. Then he said, "so I can come round of course!". I was quite taken aback by his laid back attitude but again, I refused and said that wouldn't be appropriate, but he continued to ask! This guy was in his 40's or so, with a long term girlfriend and daughter and there he was, asking to come over an 18 year old girls house. I was so tempted to inform his girlfriend but I knew all I could do was block him. However, it was harder than I thought.
For a long time, I was in disbelief that this once, amazing, highly respected man was saying these things to me. I started doubting myself, thinking maybe I was just overreacting and he wasn't being inappropriate at all and that it was just all in my head. 
I also didn't want to block him because I didn't want to hurt his feelings or make him feel rejected at all (yeah, I care way too much about everyone's feelings). This guy got me my current job and I respected him so much up until this point, that I felt bad for blocking him.
However, I eventually got the courage to block him and he has been ever since, but I'm still in disbelief that this seemingly nice guy, could change so suddenly and become some sick pervert.

Mid-life crisis. He realized he was becoming old, so he started wanting to get his mojo back and, you guessed it, asked you out. It's not his fault, honestly, he's a good guy, it's just that he's pushing his luck a bit too much.
