We aren't extremely close friends, but he always makes a big effort to catch up when we are in the same place.
He texted me the other night saying that he will be travelling to a city that is a few hours away from where I live because he's got a sports competition on there. He said that on the way back he might take a detour out to where I live. It is over a three hour drive out to where I live. The town I live in is a small country town and it's not exactly exciting out here, so I was very surprised that he would want to travel out.
Is this normal behaviour or could it mean he may be interested?
