What does it mean when a guy friend says "I love you (name)"?
Okay. So I have asked a previous question that mentions whether a guy liked me or not.. well, he's been showing many signs, of the sort, and I'm sure he might like me.
But, just a day ago he came out of nowhere (like usual) and playfully scared me (I sensed his presence but it still scares me, I startle easily). After he did and we laughed, he said while I was still trying to stop laughing "I love you (name)".
I know this can be a friendly thing for friends to say sometimes, but after signs of flirting I'm not sure if I should think differently about this. He's never said this to me until now.
