Most Helpful Guy
He's into you. If you were just friends with benefits he wouldn't bother checking up on you, or letting you know he is thinking of you. Just be cool with him, tell him how you feel, and that you think giving a relationship a shot isn't a bad idea. I guarantee he will be elated. He's texting you confusing things because he himself isn't sure what to say, he just wants contact. If you are sure on wanting a relationship then go for it.
