Does it mean anything if you and a friend of the opposite sex are walking side-by-side together and you find that you're both constantly bumping into one another during the walking? Like me and my guy friend are walking outside together going to a place, and as we're walking and talking, we end up walking so close that our arms or side of the body keeps hitting one another? Now I don't know if it's just me that's walking so close or if it's him, or if it's us both. Personally, I've harbored a crush on this guy for months but have not confessed, don't think I will because I don't want to jeopardize our friendship. Also, we got food together and I paid for him because he didn't have money. Later on he texted me thanking me for the food, I replied with a "you're welcome <3" and he texted back "thanks again <3". So does that mean anything that he gave me a heart back? He also calls me homie, broski, home slice, home skillet, dude, and fam often.

My opinion it sounds like you both like each other but you both don't want to mess up your guy's relationship12
The walking really close is usually when people are attracted, but the nick names throw me for a loop. Those are names I toss around with guys who are strictly friends, not guys with romantic interest.12

You keep bumping into each other because we humans have issues walking perfectly straight. If you're walking closely enough to each other, one of you two will accidentally go off course and bump into each other. He's responding with hearts only because you're using hearts. Whether or not the feeling is mutual is unknown. He's not giving enough. Maybe he has an incredible poker face.
What can i do to find out if he secretly likes me, without me asking him directly?
I think there's more to it @Brewmaster531. My brother and I bump into each other constantly when walking together, but I never bump into acquaintances such as classmates when walking together. Maybe you unconsciously walk closer to people you have a closer emotional connection with.
There isn't a whole lot you can do. I do know this much: you wait too long, someone else will swoop in take the opportunity you were supposed to take. The only thing I can truly think of is if you asked him to be your date to an event you have approaching like a wedding or formal dinner. See if anything comes from that.
Or, here's a sneaky way to do it: you hint that you've been talking to someone. Just giggle at your phone and tell him some guy sent you something that made you laugh. Gauge his reaction to that.
@TheBestUsername I definitely do feel like I have some emotional connection with him just because we've been friends awhile and we do joke around, hang out, but we also do have our moments where we talk about things that are meaningful to us, etc. So I'm not sure if he feels anyway about me. At the very least, maybe like a sister?
@ncityygirlc definitely try the jealousy test on him. There's one that a girl used on me where she sent me a selfie of herself with another guy and asked me to guess who the guy was. You can probably gauge by his reaction what he's feeling. If he seems like he genuinely doesn't know or if he guesses brother, friend, or relative, then he's probably not that into you. If on the other hand he acts nervous, suspicious, or asks if its your boyfriend, lover, etc then he definitely has feelings for you and is threatened by the presence of another male.
