Apparently I've creeped out a teenage guy.

Me and my friend were at the gym last week. I bumped into a former neighbor and his son. They moved to another part of town a couple of years ago and this is the first I've seen them since the move. Evidently, they just joined this gym. I went up to the dad and son to say hello. I almost didn't recognize the son, who was a skinny little boy when they moved. Now, at 17, he's a quite good looking young man with a jacked body. Hey, I'm not blind! When I said hello, I said something like "...and this must be Derek. Wow, you certainly are a handsome young man." According to my friend, I said "handsome" twice (which I don't recall) and said it each time as if I was flirting, which is the last thing I intended. My friend's been kidding me about it ever since, and I kept telling him that he's wrong. But now I'm not so sure. I've seen the dad and son twice at the gym since then, and both times they just ignore me. In fact, last night, I was getting dressed after showering and the son comes to the locker room to get his weight belt. His locker was near mine. I said hello. He gave me an awkward look back and ran out of the locker room so fast, you'd think someone was after him with a gun. Do you think I should apologize to them, or leave well enough alone? Like I said, the last thing in the world I intended was to flirt with a 17-year-old. Maybe subsconsciously I was, but not consciously. Hell, I'm 43, so I would not go there. This is really killing me, and I'm not sure how to make this right.
