I'm wondering if he secretly wants to be more? He's asked me out to dinner a couple times and has talked about other plans. He loves to cuddle and sleep over. He often says I'm "amazing" or similar and texts and calls throughout the day. Sleeping with him is incredible and feels very intimate. He gazes into my eyes a lot and acts super affectionate. I've met a few of his friends and he invited me to a party recently with all of his family and friends from home (unfortunately I couldn't make it).
BUT he has not asked to be exclusive, and hasn't even asked if I'm dating or sleeping with anyone else. Sometimes a few days will go by where we won't talk or communicate.
I do plan to ask him about all of this directly - just curious what other people think. Is this normal friends with benefits behavior?
