He says he wants to be friends

Me and this guy have been talking for a couple weeks. He calls me everyday. He has also confided in me about some things from his past and dreams for the future. We have a lot in common. He also has told me I am pretty, smart, and talented. Then after we've been talking awhile he says we are going to be good friend, say he wants us to be friends. If he just wants to be friends why does he call everyday and sometimes twice a day. What's the deal we talk for hours, do you think he really wants friendship?
