my guess is she sees you as a friend, she is using you, sees you as a father figure, and doesn't see you as a love interest.

Yes, you're being used. The question I ask is what's in it for you? If you can get laid off of a few DVDs I would say you're ahead. If you're not getting anything, then I say you need to save your money and pay for a professional instead.

Yeah, you're being used.

What is your goal here? You want to break up a family? Or get hugs?

Agreed. But, if you're looking at her - a married woman, regardless of how you view their marriage - as a potential love interest, then you're not too high on the list of honorable people either.

I've seen you complain/gripe about money a few times. Why are you spending money on DVDs for a woman who's not even related to you? Keep it to coffee and conversation if you need social interaction.

That would depend on the kinds of daddy issues she has.

I completely predicted the course of this thread before I even opened it.

Carry on. But d-4-l, you gotta start protesting and denying and rationalizing, or else this thread fails. It's on your shoulders now.

Is your friend delusional, in his mid-20's, and a professed Joss Whedon fan?

Ask yourself, would you be doing all this for her if she was 54, married, and not at all hot?
