Guys, Let's be friends: real or rubbish?

Anonymous
I had a short relationship early last year. It was mainly sex but when it fizzled out he was insistent we stay mates. We carried on texting every day pretty much, even when we were both in other relationships. We met a few times (some platonically, some not...) but it's got to the point where I think I'm investing a bit more than he is and I'm trying not to get hurt. Whenever I've suggested going our separate ways he says he doesn't want that. But equally he won't tell me how he feels and I'm too scared to hear it. I find it hard as I'll admit I probably feel a lot for him. Every so often he asks me if I'm single etc but he gets cross if I ask the same lately (he does answer tho and atm he is still single). Whenever I've split from an ex before we've always gone our separate ways. My question is: does he mean it when he says he wants to be friends? Or am I being a mug?
