I have a guy friend and I can't seem to figure out if he likes me. Lot's of flirting, intrusive questions etc. He teases me a lot about relationships and wants to know about who I am dating and I am fed up because he doesn't ask me out. Instead he tells me that I need to be more aggressive. I get frustrated and sometimes I catch myself being a bit harsh with him, to the point where I think it affects his ego. The last time we met I said a few things that upset him and I realize now I totally gave him the friend vibe. Despite the harsh comments he still wants to hang out and meet with me every week. I found out that he is dating another girl, which he did not want to disclose to me so I don't get why he bothers with me. I'm really not sure what to do with him and I can't seem to just let things be. Help?!

He's shy or afraid to ask you () and he would find it reassuring if you asked.
>[Despite the harsh comments he still wants to hang out and meet with me every week. ]
He wouldn't do that if he disliked you.
>[dating another girl, which he did not want to disclose to me]
Might it be fake, to tickle a bit of jealousy?
>[I can't seem to just let things be. Help?!]
Well, talk to him. Push him against a wall, a spot in his eyes:
[menacing cops voice, Dirty Harry style]
"Now, boy, you're gonna tell me the truth, all the truth and nothing but the truth! Or else..."
Then, talk with him:
talking helps a lot more than guessing or interpreting body language.
