How would you feel if you were me?

Okay so this guy that I’ve know for about 3 years, I have the biggest crush on, his name is Aaron. He’s a couple of years older than me. I’d say we’re pretty close we talk/text almost everyday, we just had a gift exchange as friends and he gave me what I wanted and vise versa. His coworkers are always telling me he likes me, but is too shy to admit it. So I never bring it up. He always says, the best relationships always start as friends, so I’m like okay cool. We have so much in common. The only thing is sometimes he says I deserve better because in less than a year I will be a registered nurse, and he’ll still be a security guard. I think he still has a problem with that even though I’ve told him it doesn’t matter. We’ve joked about baby names, and everything. At this point I don’t know what to do. Ask him out, or just continue to be friends and move on and actually just date someone, and not be stuck on him
