Signs point that he likes you. Boys are really complicated. The best thing to do is to ask him about it, that’s the only way you’ll really ever know. If you’re that close as you say, it shouldn’t ruin anything.
So that sounds like a great idea but three years ago after some drama happened he found out how much I liked him and he walked on egg shells around me, and I don’t want that again.
