What does it mean when a guy jokes around about going on a date with you?

We are in the same group of friends.
Whenever he's going to go out he'd tell me and invite me to go with him. Then he'd joke about seeing me there. Today he joked about going on a date with me.

Guyfriend: He said he'd take you to that restaurant you wanted to go to for a long time now!
Him: Yeah you want tacos? I'll take you!
Me: No, I was just joking
Him: 6? 5?
Me: No dude I'm just joking gez!
Him: Ok meet you there at 6. You better show up! I'm gonna be waiting!
Me: *Laughing*
Him: you better be there at 6! Don't leave me hanging!
Mutual guy friend: yeah Lori don't make a guy wait for you!
Me: *Flicks them off* y'all play too much!

Why do guys joke like this?

  • He probably really likes you but is too scared to come out and say it. You should just ask him if he wants to date you when you two are alone.

  • He definitely likes you. He is just too scared to tell you because he is afraid of what you might think and what your group of friends think. If a guy hints at hanging out he definitely likes you and wants to go on a date
