Moving on from a long-time crush?

I've been friends with this guy for 2 years now and 6 months ago I told him I liked him and he didn't know how to respond so we continued like normal friends. Everyone around me tells me he likes me but I don't know if he does as he hasn't said anything. He says he isn't interested in relationships because they're too much work but he sometimes acts different around me compared to other girls. I've noticed that he's started acting the way he does around me with my best friend and I can't help but feel sad whenever they're together because she makes him laugh and smile more than I do. I don't know whether to try and move on or keep hoping that one day he might end up liking me? I've also tried staying away from him but then he asks me why I'm keeping my distance and says it's unusual. Please help me!
