My best friend and I have know each other for four years, but we were inseparable. I told him everything, and trusted him and we had the best of times. He liked me at one point but I told him, I just wasn't that into him that way. We remained friends. He told me he was over me. A year or so later I moved across the country. Right after moving he told me I was the girl of his dreams and he was never going to find another girl like me. I told him I was flattered, but it didn't change the fact that I loved him like my brother.
Of course we started growing apart slightly, but nothing too serious. We even got into a friendship changing argument. We stopped talking for months. Then it started again.
This past summer, I had the chance to go back and see him while visiting family. (Along with my girl best friend). We spent a few days in Philadelphia together, the three of us.
The day after our trip ended, he texted me little flirty sentimental things like "Goodnight darling", "Hello beautiful". These things are very unlike him, especially in context to me. I feel like every time he sees me in person again, those past feelings come rushing back.
He constantly says he doesn't like me like that, and that we have a best friend/family connection. But the moment we see each other (like this past summer) something changes in him.
I just need a second opinion. I'm not going to let it ruin our friendship, but if I'm right about him liking me, will rejection finally get to him?

It sounds to me like he's the person to talk to about this.
It sounds like you already have tried, and he says he doesn't have romantic feelings for you anymore: is that right?
