He has talked to me a lot, spent time with me, and done nice things for me. He seemed like a cool guy. He becomes super weird if I'm nice to him in return. If I compliment him on something, he ignores it. If I try to be nice, he pushes me away. At this point I wouldn't say we have progressed to being friends and he's never stated that he's interested in me romantically. His behavior confuses me and seems so contradictory. I'm not sure why he wants to talk to me in the first place if he rejects any notion of friendship and won't say anything about being interested.
