    it makes me think that he doesn't envision me being his girlfriend
    'I don't want to lose you to another girl' is very ambiguous and suggests your acknowledgement of the idea of him with other girls, and moreover your acceptance of it. You can't expect a clear answer when you've said something as ambiguous as that - of course he wasn't going to say 'I want that girl to be you', unless he has got serious balls. This will sound very cheesy, but next time you have one of those moments where you could kiss, look him in the eye, then lower your gaze to his mouth, then look into his eyes again. Or stroke his hair, or put your arm round his waist. Or just kiss him.

    I don't know if the feeling is reciprocated, obviously my thoughts are going to be biased - wishful thinking. I don't know what behaviour crosses the line from best friends to more. Some times we cuddle for hours and it gets touchy feely, we end up holding hands and he rests his hands wherever, like on my thighs. We play fight/tackle but I would think that this is pretty standard? Some times it gets to the point where we are about to kiss one another but neither of us leans forward first.. if you get what i mean.

    I want to come out and admit that i like him but how do I do it tactfully? I keep hinting, I say lame things like "I never want to lose you [to another girl]" and he'll say "you won't. when i get a gf, you'll still be in my life" and this makes me re think whether he likes me?

    but he's the kind of guy who doesn't believe that a girl can truly like him. He's that shy guy. you know what i mean..
    I can relate a fair bit to this, i pretty much loved one of my bestfriends, the other one of my bestfriends happens to be her ex boyfreind who is also a bit on the mental side. A massively long story short things went BADLY.

    But your situation is a bit different, and i understand the feeling you get with someone that close to you. So my advice is to go for it, but approach with caution make sure you think he is mature enough to deal with it if how you feeling isn't reciprocated. And also think about the people around the two of you, they can have a massive effect sometimes...
