Most Helpful Guy
Not knowing the guy, it at least means he really cares about you, most likely in a romantic way. If I said that, which I have, then it would mean I like the girl but either I'm scared she doesn't feel the same way so I'm saying it more subtly or I like her and I want to tell her but for some reason it's not the right time.
For instance I've said that to a friend who had a boyfriend and I didn't think it was appropriate to say it just yet because they were breaking up. She figured it out later because I couldn't help but show her through my actions that I liked her and we eventually dated.
So ultimately, I think he likes you. :)0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
