Is it weird to be friends with your supervisor?

My supervisor and I talk a bit here and there everyday. We usually talk about cars and such. But sometimes I feel like when he is giving assignments to people he separates me from everyone else so we can talk alone or something. Yesterday when I was trying to move an equipment, i asked him something that i cant recall but while i was asking him and looking at him he was looking down at me. The other day while i was walking to my work area, I heard someone behind me so i turned around to see who it is and its my supervisor. He gave the "one raised brow" whatever that means. Today we were talking on a personal level about life i guess. Then a couple hours later when i was near his desk to sort some paper out he called my name and said "im bored! Come hang out with me." while sitting at his desk facing towards me. I was gonna say aw your cute because i say that alot to basically anyone but i didnt. instead i said dont u have crap to do. etc I do think he is cute but hes in his mid 30s and im in my early 20s. The things he does as a hobby and his interests are stuff that i like too. Is there a chance that we can be friends or its just a no no ?

I refuse to have anything other than a working relationship with my boss. Work and personal lives should be kept completely separate, in my opinion. It sounds like he's coming onto you though, I don't think he's interested in friendship.

You can be friends, but try not to be much more. By the way your post sounds, he might be coming onto you more than a supervisor should be.

Supervisors should NOT have subordinates as friends in the workplace..
It creates too much backlash
