Most Helpful Guy
Yes, I think he got hurt because you sort of like rejected him, or he felt like that. Yes it's possible maybe he started liking you, I mean the beginning phase. However I am unable to understand, do you want to friends with him atleast? I am not for hanging out or something like that, just friends? or do you not want him in your life at all?
It's also possible he just wanted friendship from you but when you said no, he would have got hurt but you can never know the truth, unless you speak to him about it.
