His best friend told me he likes me. Others have told me he likes me. I want to believe that he does (especially because of how he has acted towards me) but he rarely gets back to me when I text and this past weekend when we hung out - he seemed a little stand offish and made comments to me about how I have my life together and that is something that is way beyond him (even though he does too).
I don't know why he all of a sudden is ghosting me via text - especially since we have an established friendship. The only thing I can think is that he thinks I am out of his league becuase of those comments but even that I don't see as true. I don't know - what do you think? Is he being genuine? And why would he stop communicating?
I think myself, him and a few other people may get together tonight but I dont want to push him to talk tonight if it isn't the right time, you know? Thoughts?

I can understand how he feels - he's out of his depth and afraid of losing you, both as a girlfriend and as a friend. Try to reassure him about your feelings. Beware of compliments that might be taken as sarcasm.
Try to imagine your best friend introduces you to her cousin who's visiting - and it's George Clooney, or whoever. How do you think you'd feel - tongue-tied? Terrified of saying the wrong thing and looking like an idiot to him, and to your friend as well, wrecking that friendship?
Is the text thing sudden? Some people just don't feel comfortable talking like that in text messages, particularly under pressure like that - have you tried phoning instead, and seeing how he is on the phone? (If he was better when you were just friends, that would be why: not being "just friends" changes it all there.)
