What does it mean when my best guy friend says "if we don't find anyone better by the time we're 30, let's get married"? My friend knows I like him but says he doesn't like me back but still says things like this. Thanks in advance for any advice.

He wants to keep his options open and encouraging you to do so. He also mean that if things are meant to be, you guys will be together. If not, so be it and there's nothing bad about it. I doubt he wants to commit with you now because getting together too young often ends up with break-up. Instead of risking that and your friendship, he's giving both of you the chance to grow and develop individually and see how things go when you both reach late 20s or early 30s. Cherish this friendship. He knows how to have both his and your interest in check without crossing the romantic boundaries and he's pragmatic.2
