I'd been best friends with this guy for a couple months, let's call him Eliza. We're really close and tell each other everything. I thought Eliza had permenantly friend-zoned me, then after I got rejected by my crush, everything changed.
One day, I casually hugged Eliza goodbye. I didn't think it was a serious hug. A couple days later, Eliza told me I gave him the best feeling ever when I hugged him. Then he started talking about how he'd love to hug me, kiss me anywhere and cuddle me. I told him the same things. He also said he was turned on..
Why does he suddenly like me? I'm 16, he's 17.

He probably hadn't thought of you as a potential girlfriend when you were after someone else, at least not seriously so being your friend was ok. Now that you have been rejected by this other guy, Eliza senses his chance to make a move for you.
In the past I have had a situation where I was friends with a girl and never really thought of her at all as anything else and then months later began to see her differently so it can happen. If you have been able to speak honestly about things with Eliza then that shows maturity on both your parts.1

Sometimes Life Fools us with Besties at their All time Best and Suddenly... The Chemistry hits us like a lead balloon.
Now that you both have Begun your Beguine of Nursing and Nurturing Something Special with 'Best friends,' you can go on with More in Store and See if it Continues to be as Magically High as being friends here, dear.
However, might I suggest to Go Slow with Joe so you both can take this in Baby Steps... Things seem to be happening very Fast and you want to make sure it can Last.
Good luck. xx0
