Dear Billie, Words can be confusing. My dear could mean a variety of things depending on situation, event and intonation. But, my best quess, is that it is a statement of interest and attraction and that he is carefully watching your reactions. The beginning stages of love are a tender thing. Does he stand a little closer than most, touch you accidently, focus upon you and show other non-verbal indicators. All of this including clever verbal exchange with innuendos constitute flirting. Next time he calls you "my dear", ask him, "When you call someone "my dear" is it just a friendship thing or does it mean more?" That will shock him and tell the story in a direct way. Love and Peace, Dr. Bill
