Does my guy friend love me?

I've known this guy for about 2 yrs. we used to hang out twice a week. we both had feeling for each other. He left about 4 months ago but now called back saying he misses me a lot and hopes to see me again. He has been very respectful and nice to me all this time. We never really fought about anything. Do you think he likes me? He doesn't have a job at this time and he's looking. Please help
