I (25F) just joined a new workplace. My boss (65M) really admires my work, and he took a really great liking of me. He often invites me over to his office and just talks about family, professional stuff, and everyday life. Nothing creepy, very much like how a grandfather would talk.
Today, when I came to his office, he shook my hand and kissed it. I did not expect this as this is the first time he greeted me this way, and this isn’t very common in both of our cultures, especially in a work environment. It is, however, a gesture that their culture often does with family, albeit rarely with the opposite gender. However, I assumed this is because he sees me as a grandchild, and just brushed it off.
I told my bf (28M) about it, and he said that this is inappropriate. He then started saying that he will not be kissing my hand anymore and has treated me coldly since. Any advices?
