Does he want a relationship?Watch
ask yourself questions like:
do you know his sexuality, and does it allow him to be attracted to you?
how does he normally act around you, and how does this compare to how he acts around others?
how well do you know each other?
is he in a place where he's ready/desiring a relationship/commitment?
Could just be casual flirting or a habitual charmer who says the same thing to every girl, regardless of whether she is 4 years old or 94 years old.
He may be trying to boost your confidence and give you a compliment on a friends basis.
Or he could find you attractive and want to get to know you. But you can’t predict his intentions based upon one statement..
