Sending subtle signs, he likes you rather than overt signs, feels a lot safer when someone is afraid of rejection, after all.
Otherwise, why are you here? When a guy likes you, he will flirt with you, and you will see signs he secretly likes you more than a friend.
I told him I think we will, we communicate well in the text without fighting.
For example, if this guy is a shy person, but whenever he sees you, a smile lights upon his face or constantly maintains eye contact, this is to hint that he is into you and wants to be more than just a casual friend.
