How does a girl find out if a guy likes her as more than a friend or if he is just being nice because he feels like he has to?

I take it you are fairly young and of course it's appears you are unsure of your relationship with this young man. Usually young men will not hang around (unless there is sex involved) if they didn't like the girl. If you are not sexually active together then he could be simply a good friend or too shy to ask you out. Communication is everything so why not go for a coffee and sit and talk about it and hear what he has to say about it. Good luck
