What does it mean if your crush's friends ask you to date him?

I have a crush on my classmate... it jas been about three months since he started behaving this way... he's always making fun of me in a mean way and punching me playfully... ... anyway , it has been a while since i kept getting mixed signals from this guy.. he 's sometimes cold and simetimes warm and cheerful... the priblem is that he cinfessioned and asked me out jokingly... i mean even me still thinks it's prank or something like that... anyway my male classmates asked me to date him... i was so fucking surprised and flustered... i mean what is this? c
everybody was looking at me and as i tried to change the topic , but they kept asking me with persistencr while my crush who kept quiet gazed at me... in the end i told them jokingly that he is not my style and that i already have anither crush... They continued telling me that he is soo lonely and he needs a warm girl !! ... it's been two weeks since all of this happened and he kept eating my snacks and joking with me... he even asked me yesterday :"what do you think of my hairstyle?"...
