Thought on if my chiropractor is flirting with me or just being friendly

Ok so I was referred to go to a chiropractor cause I was having a stabbing burning feeling in my lower back from a car accident I was in and at first nothing happened but I said that I felt old and he asked how old I was  and I told him then I turned it around and asked how old he was and he told me he also told me what month his birthday is in and then I noticed the next appointment he helped me sit up and I can sit up on my own it just takes a second to do so and he has been helping me up every appointment I’ve had and after he’s done cracking my neck and he’s rubbing Biofreeze on it when we are kinda talking he massaging it to talk to me and then continues and I have two tattoos and one of them is a little below my collar bone and he must have been looking hard at it to ask me what it says and we have talked bout getting more tattoos his dog and how old it is and he even told me that he is the oldest of 6 siblings and idk if that’s normal for a doctor to kinda tell me slightly personal information and show me a tattoo on his shoulder blade and tell me what his meaning behind his sleeve tattoo is? Then we were talking bout how he hasn’t gone on vacation since his honeymoon which was 3 years ago and I said I didn’t know that you were married and he said that he’s divorced and so I said your a single Pringle and he said yea lol and then I was joking bout him taking me on his three day vacation and he said that it wouldn’t look good if he took a patient on vacation then I said something bout how i need one and then somehow this was talked bout I said the next time u go u should take me (kinda joking but mainly joking) then he said that he would and I said that I will hold u to that and he said ok chuckling a bit and idk if he was joking as well or being serous about it.... then I told him how I fell off of a skateboard and then he asked how old I was and I told him and somehow I brought up that he’s only 9 years older than me and then he actually did the math and said no we are 10 1/2 years apart then the next day I said hey your wearing a different color and he recalled I’ll of the colors he has worn around me and I was joking when I said that we need to stop matching we basically have had the same color on 95% of the time we see each other and then they Uber patients out to his office and back and I asked the receptionist if she could do that for me for the next day and she asked how many miles do I live from there and I told her and apparently I was 3 miles out of his Uber thing and she said just for me they would do that and so the next day when I called she told me that she turned down two people waiting for me to call to see if I needed one and after I got done getting adjusted I was thanking the doctor and saying how he didn’t have to do that for me knowing I was out of the limit and then I said I kinda want to hug you but idk if it went against the doctor patient boundaries and he said I’ll give you a hug....

Hi, it sounds like you would rather be the chiropractor's flirtation than his client, and that is the choice you need to make. Don't stay on as his client if your intention is to flirt with him, because you will get him into professional trouble.

Here is what I said when you wrote about this last July:
He has a professional code of ethics to live up to and could get into trouble for inappropriate behavior with a patient.  If you like him personally and don't mind finding out his intentions, you could talk to him at your next visit and ask for a referral to another chiro, and just tell him it's because you find him personally attractive and would prefer to only have a professional relationship with any treating doctor. Then the ball is in his court. But don't be his patient and start seeing him romantically.

I would always choose to believe he is just being friendly because if you suspect anything otherwise, he is being unethical and you should never go back.  good luck
