Most Helpful Guy
Why don't you let him know how you feel about him? forget about what happened in the past, start afresh, let him know how you feel about him romantically, at the most what will happen, he may not accept it or will be taken aback, but then how do you know he is not feeling the same about you? maybe he is afraid to tell you just like you are afraid to tell him, and just as you distanced yourself from him because you love him, who know he may have friend-zoned you because he might have had some feelings for you?
Possible right? anyways I would suggest if you can gather strength to tell him how you feel in that way you'll know what happens.
