I ended up offering to pay for both us for lunch... Im so used to treating my friends, that I didn't even think twice about it, and now all I can keep thinking of is that he's going to see me as just a friend, or the fact that he didn't even offer to pay means he's not interested. Any insight would help!

Just answered something somewhat similar to a guy, so I'll copy/paste my answer because it is relevant:
Here is a piece of advice that took me a broken heart and a few wasted years of my life to figure out:
There is no such thing as the friend zone. The "friend zone" is something you do to yourself because you never make it clear that you are attracted to her. If you flirt with her you are going to be out of the friend zone immediately, because "does she like me?" exists for the girl too, it's called "does he like me?".
If you think you're in the friend zone, odds are you haven't made it clear (or most likely, did anything to show) that you like her.0
