Why did he call me darling now???

Hey there, hope you help me out here guys!

I've posted before bout this crush of mine who comes into the restaurant I work in. He is a really nice guy, very genuine, handsome, I really really like him. We always have chats when he comes in, I only see him once a week. It started getting flirtatious, got very flirtatious! Then got awkward for a few weeks. Thought maybe he had lost interest. He came in today and when he ordered his food at the counter he called me "darling" in such a soft sweet way, never has done this before, has always called me by my name. He was back to his lovely smiley self, which was nice cos whatever what could happen I just really like talking to him. Anyway what does this darling mean, does it mean he just thinks of me as a friend? I've known him for over a year now and I'm just too shy to ask him out on a date. Any advice will be appreciated, thanks!
