He also said to me 'I hope we can still be friends and hang out'
why is he friend-zoning me?
He found someone better? That's sometimes the reason. Or he simply doesn't want a relationship, most guys don't if they can avoid it. He probably realized all the crap that happens after the kiss (ie getting in your pants, and then probably you getting mad and/or other drama after that when he tells you he doesn't want a relationship) once he thought it through and changed his mind.
I would friend-zone a girl who asks the same question again and again for weeks, too
Perhaps he thinks he's in your friendzone? Wha did he say after the 'but'? Why didn't he kiss you?
