Find a Conversation

I have been talking with this guy for about 2.5 months, and we are friends (nothing sexual, I promise you). We talk on a regular basis (at least 3x per week) and I enjoy hearing from him and spending time with him. I almost feel this level of awkwardness between us. I have been aware for at least a 1.5 months that I have these caring and affectionate feeling for him. I try to react to him very neutrally because I'm not sure what he's thinking.
For a while he has been throwing in something flirty into the conversation, or something "jokingly" sexually related. He will even drop these little questions like "what did you think of me when...?". I guess I'm not sure if the guy is fishing for flattery or genuinely wants to know if I'm attracted to him. I told him a long time ago that I thought he was very attractive and I enjoyed his company. But, I'm not the type of woman to answer something that I perceive as indirect or eluding to something. If he asked me directly, I would be honest with him that I am attracted to him. But, I would be hesitate to say more than that (that I am attracted to you on a deeper level) if all he really wants is a compliment! Does this make sense?
One more thing. For the record, I'm not so vain to automatically think that this person is interested in me as a potential romantic partner. However, it significantly bothers me that the question may come up. It bothers me because I can never recall being in a position where I have all these feelings of attraction and affection for a person, yet I feel like pursuing a romantic relationship would be destined for a dramatic failure. It just feels creepily strange...and I have no clue.
