Is it weird for best friends of the opposite gender to be touchy?

I have a best friend who is the same age as me and male. We're very close friends and have known each other since we were kids, best friends since around 9th grade. My friend and I are very touchy though and sometimes he'll hug me from behind (for a long period of time tbh) or hug me when I say hi. He has put his arms around my shoulders before or tucked my hair behind my ear. Our friends say we should date but I don't really have those feelings for him and I don't know if he does. I'm fine with all these interactions and kind of like it but everyone says its like we're a couple although we're only friends. We have never kissed or anything.
