I am quite inexperienced in anything dealing with romance. I want to know if he likes me as much as I like him.

He knows more than my parents know about me.
He likes to poke or touch my arm and step on my shoe.
He likes to talk to me on MSN.
I go to youth meetings at his church sometimes.
He likes to look into my eyes.
He tells me secrets.
I walk him to track practice every day.
He likes to hug me a lot.
He asked me to a dance as friends, but cancelled because of plans his parents made before it.
He made a big deal about breaking up with his girlfriend yesterday and demanded to know what I had to say about it.

Does he like me? Or is this normal for a friend who's a boy to do this stuff?

The only way to really tell if he likes you is to ask him. Seriously. But ask yourself--what do you want from that sort of relationship, if it exists? Would you rather have him as a friend, which is perfectly okay? Or as a boyfriend or parter, which is okay, too?

I agree with DarkChild717. It's quite possible he does like you. In fact, it sounds like he does. But, you need to ask him if he does. That's the only way. If you're nervous, just try to put it in humor. Start a conversation about dating couples and playfully ask him if he would ever date you. Then, take it from there. Hope this helps!

Thank you both very much. This helps. It's gonna take a bit of courage but I'll be sure to ask him.
