Not childish, but impulsive? Yes. Especially since you do not know how he feels about you. Rather than undertake something as drastic as abandoning a position that affords you the security of food and a place to sleep, you can approach this another way. If the job allows a vacation or personal leave, take it and spend it with him. Or, if he is aware you’d like to see him it would be perfectly fine to ask *him* to come visit you. Show him around a different place lighten his mind.. If the feeling is mutual and the option exists I’m sure he’d love to. Being face to face before you decide to quit would help tremendously.

If you’re able meet up or not, you still may not want to decide based on how you think he might feel. Either way you should ask him what are his feelings for you, where does he see this going? And the jump you should probably take before ditching your job is to tell him you feel you would like to be close to him and tell him you feel this so strongly you want to leave your job to be able to do so.
Bottom line is just to do things in order, you need to know for yourself how he feels for you and about that decision. If the feeling is mutual you’ll feel better about your decision if you quit, and if it’s not you won’t have compromised how you can support yourself.
Don’t hesitate to feel this whole thing out and get feedback to avoid a letdown, because you really don’t want to be let down, heartbroken and without a way to take care of yourself.
