Is this guy interested in me?

I'm talking to a guy and he has given me some signs that he may be interested, for example he makes eye contact, smiles and starts many conversations/asks questions. A few days ago we were having a meeting, with two other people and he suggests that the two of us would meet up and plan things. It seemed to me that he really wanted to meet me, because he planned so that we would have time alone. I wrote to him and said that it feels shitty to leave my friend alone and that maybe she could come along. He then tells me that he wanted to mix the group since me and my friend often hangs out alone, while the others are in a large group. Is he honest or did he actually want to spend time with me alone?
