Dating a Friend

Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Female
I have this friend... we've been in the same school since we were kids, but this year we really got to know each other.
We became really good friends, and I started to like him... He once told me about this girl he had a crush with for 3 years... About a week ago he told me he liked me also. But then a few days later, he was all down because he started thinking about that girl and then he told me he thought about that and he said that I was his friend and he wasn't capable of being more than friends, so he asked me to be just friends.
I dont know what to do, or to think... I'm really confused, is he starting to like this girl again? or does he just think about us as just friends? or should i wait a while more? Advice
It's a very hard transition for some people to make, to go from great friend to boyfriend-girlfriend. What's sad is that this is the VERY best kind of relationship - the one founded on real friendship. I have a ton of advice on this here -
