I don't like him that way, but i still want him to be a good friend

Visitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Female
There's this guy I know and he's very social and a little bit full of himself. he jokes around with me, but he jokes around with everyone. I feel that he wants to have a good conversation with me but doesn't really know what to say and doesn't want to ask certain personal stuff directly b/c he's something like tutor and it would look to obvious. A couple of time he lightly tapped me while in conversation and i don't think he would do that to other ppl. Another time he put his arm on my shoulder to get my attention. Whenever i get a problem correct he gives me a thumbs up but seems to want to show more appreciation. So I don't know if he likes me or wants to be a good friend or likes that i'm doing good in the class. He always waves hi (usually b/c he has headphones on and it would be useless to talk). One time i didn't see him and he could have walked on by but said hi and another time i heard him walk faster till he got beside me (although that's about where he had to stop anyways) and only waved hi. then he seemed to wait for me just to ask how i did on a quiz.
I don't like him that way, but i still want him to be a good friend.
does he like me? and how should i have him be close friends and not push him out of the way if he does?
there's also this other guy (who i think is hot and want to meet even if he wasn't) who doens't know that i exist but that's anther story
sorry for the length,
Lost and confused

RomanceClass.com Advice
Treat this guy like a friend and that's the level it will stay at unless he tries to move to the next level.

At that point, you explain to him how you feel.

He seems to be a flirtaceous soul and perhaps only sees you as a friend too.

Good luck!
