Default Have I been friend zoned?

I (9th grade/high school) have been friends with this guy (8th grade/middle school) for a couple months now. Though we’re in different grades, it is only a two month age difference. We met while doing a school play (I was one of the actresses and he was on stage crew). We immediately got along, but we could never see each other outside of the play. A couple weeks after the production was over, I was assigned to try to sell items for a fundraiser. This meant that I had to show up to middle school lunch. I was not expecting him to come and say hi, but he did. We ended up talking through all of lunch. From that point on, I felt that we had formed a bond. I saw him in the hallways for the first time, and the following week, I had to help clean up the cafeteria. A couple minutes in, he shows up with an item that we have an inside joke about. He said he was out of class to use the bathroom (not sure how accurate this is, however, since he showed up with the item). We talked for a couple minutes and he had to go back to class. I stay after school everyday, but since our school is fairly large, I never noticed that he did as well. We found each other one day and kept talking until he got a phone call from his parents asking what was holding him up. We now keep meeting up after school. One day, when I was waiting for him to get his stuff, he invited me to his house for a party. I would be the only girl there. He offered me a ride, and I told him I would ask my parents. I’d forgotten to get his address, but the next day we had a field trip together so I would ask him there. I asked for his address, but he insisted on exchanging numbers first. He kept following me and showing off, but I pretended not to notice. Then my other guy friend came to give me a hug. This other guy always tells me how much he loves me (as a joke) and gives me hugs. The original guy (8th grader) sees this, and tells my friend to stop. I was curious as to why he was so sensitive to this. After the field trip, his mom picked me up for the party. When I first saw his mom, she automatically knew my name and welcomed me. I was a bit awkward since there were only guys there, but we all got along. There were a couple instances though, where he seemed disappointed with my reaction to things he did. With all this, however, I am wondering if he just likes me as a friend. He also has a lot of friends that are girls, and he once told me how excited he was that he could talk to all of them without them wanting him to go away. We texted for the first time since we got each other’s numbers on Christmas, but I initiated the conversation and it was only about gifts. Any advice would be appreciated, and sorry this is so long!

It isn't the length of the text, it is the lack of paragraphs and blank lines, that makes reading it so arduous reading your post.

But to get back to your prob ... I have no idea what's going on with that guy.

But I think you should give that thingy between the both of you two a chance. And if he sees in you only a friend, then decide whether you can live with it or not.
