Guys I need your help: how should I act around a guy who I've rejected, but who still wants to be friends?

I'll try to make it short.
About a year ago I met him through a mutual friend. We became friends pretty fast. And soon after he said he liked me a lot. I rejected him nicely. But he kept telling me and eventually I was a bitch about it and we quit talking (around June maybe?)

Well... I felt bad. He's truly a great friend and a good person and he needs more friends in his life. So I texted him and apologized and he said he's glad bc he wants friendship with me too.
Come to find out he's friends with my older brother. My brother knows the situation and says the guy still likes me a lot but knows it will never happen.

So I'm really afraid to hurt his feelings!
He's had a rough life. I don't want him to think a hug means something. But I still want to be comfortable around him.

Any tips / advice?
