Does this married man like me. We ride in the car together.?

I’m 19 years old and I have a license but don’t own a car. My New Years resolution this year was to join a music group, so I started at a music school for adults. At first, I’d borrow my sisters car to drive there but then my sister moved away.

My New Years resolution this year was to join a music group, so I started at a music school for adults. At first, I’d borrow my sisters car to drive there but then my sister moved away. So about four months ago, I asked another student, a man, if he could give me lifts. My house is in between his work and the school. He is 35 and is married.

At first it was fine. We would talk a little. But as I got more comfortable he started joking more. He made sexual jokes. I just took it as typical male banter. Then one night, I asked him about something to get a male’s perspective. I was being picked on by some guys at work and I asked him, “If someone is picking on you, does it mean that they’re insecure? Cause there’s a group of guys who are picking on me.” And he laughed and said that it’s because I’m attractive and that’s the reason he picks on me sometimes too. I thought, *Ok, he’s just being nice, trying to make me feel better.*

But ever since he said that, he’s been more jokey/flirty. The other night he mentioned it again. He was saying how his personality type is flirty, not sleazy but that he’s naturally flirty so he has to be careful what he says around me because I’m attractive. If he has admitted that I’m attractive and has to watch what he says, is it safe to assume that it means he is attracted to me? It irks me that he would even bother to mention those things. Should I find someone else to give me lifts?
