I am good friends with this guy who recently broke up with his girlfriend. They are done for good (he found out she cheated and won't take her back) he has on numerous occasions told me that I'm "smart, pretty, sweet, and level-headed" and that he likes me and is just afraid to get hurt. He also told me he is attracted to me and that we have a lot in common and that I am the most "drama-free" girl he's ever met and he's worried that my level-headed calmness will change if we date (like I'm just acting that way to get him to fall for me) he calls me and texts me every day--we talk for at least an hour even if I've seen him that day--we go to dinner and he introduced me to his friends and even was calling me "his old lady" and "his girl" and kissing me in front of them. I was there for him during the whole thing with his ex and he has told me that I'm a wonderful person and wouldn't jeopardize our friendship and possibly more for her. Even more he always acts concerned over whether or not I'm happy and comfortable. He told me there is a chance for an "us" but he needs time and that he doesn't want to rush into anything until he's sure because he doesn't want to do it halfway and that if we date he wants to do it whole-heartedly. We've had sex before and dated briefly --he won't even have sex with me because he doesn't want me to think our relationship is just sex. Or to lead me on because he said he doesn't want to hurt me especially over sex. What do I do? Does it sound like he likes me? I want to think he does but I don't know---is that how a guy acts when he cares about someone why aren't we dating yet? I know he's not seeing other girls because he's with me everyday. He treats me like a girlfriend in every sense except the title. And he got really hurt when I told him to either date me or that I had to move on (that's when he told me to do what I had to to make myself happy and we could just be friends but that he wanted to date me once he got his head straight again). Any thoughts?
2) he has told me his secrets...and let me borrow his car...(so I'm not thinking trust is that big an issue)
