I have a friend who I have known for a month or two now, but we can't seem to stop bantering and flirting and insulting each other and play fighting. He made a huge effort to befriend all my friends and take time to talk to me and everyone said we were heading for a relationship. We ending up acting on the chemistry, and since then the play violence and flirting has only got worse. He calls me woman and pokes me and mocks me all the time, but is really nice when I am down or when we are having a serious talk. Sometimes he comments on how hot unattainable people, like celebrities are, but never other girls in front of me. When people say "Oh he likes you" in front of him, while we are mucking about, he just laughs, like a chuckle, but never confirms or denies it. I have asked him out once or twice as friend, but he has never answered. I told him I was into him, but he didn't run away or ask me out, and its so confusing. Oh, I'm 21 and he is 19 and we are at uni together.
Update: Quick update that I forgot to mention, quite a few times when I am with other guys, single or taken, he will text me or find a way to contact me to make a jibe about me and the other guy getting together or doing stuff, even when he knows we aren't.
Ignore him or act bored of his behaviour, he tries to get my attention again and stares at me when I'm around other people, especially other guys.
I am starting to get a little bored, truth be told.

I think the key to finding out if he really likes you is to keep seeing other guys apart from him. Then see how he reacts. If it is with a degree of jealousy, ie. he texts / contacts you about you seeing other guys. I'd take it as a YES, he likes you and I think you're in a flitationship right enough! He now knows for sure you like him! Hope that helps.0
