I met an awesome guy through a group of friends. We always hang out together, and he jokes with me a lot. We share a lot in common and have been getting to know each other lately. Last week he couldn't make it because he was sick. I chatted with him via text, and he said that he was really upset he couldn't make it last week because, "he was looking forward to spending time with me again." I know it's kind of obvious he means what he says here, but does this mean he likes me only in a "friend" way, or is there potential for something more behind his meaning? Thanks Guys for all your answers in advance!
