I poured my heart out to my crush and he said that solidifies our friendship. What does he mean by that does he not like me the way I like him?
The term seems to be more STRONGLY associated with an unrequited carnal desire than romantic. But the odds are in favour of this, especially if you've made no prior approach, haven't known each other long etc, as is characteristic with crushes.
Good job on having the courage to speak out, though. Can't succeed without trying.
