Thank you for sharing. I am happy to help you understand this dream. Remember, the key is in the details!! I agree with MrsSandman that perhaps the dream is not implying any desire from you or this man to be romantic; it could be that you admire him or some quality about him.
You describe him lifting you up - is he in a leadership position over you?
Your dream is indicative of the need for someone close to you to 'pick you up' and speak some positive and caring words to you (kissing is a symbol of speaking sweet words). If you have been feeling down in your life, this dream is a recurring thought that your subconscious keeps bringing to the surface. You are seeing this man at work because 1- on some level you already feel he has caring thoughts for you, and 2- you mention he is an easy going guy - not critical or overbearing.
Until you ackowledge and address this issue, the dreams may continue. However, once you receive positive validation (from spouse, kids, boss, coworkers) the dream theme will cease.
I hope this sheds some light for you. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Sweet Dreams!
