When he insisted that we:

a) hang out …
b) have dinner; he then volunteered to pick up take-out on the way home so neither would have to cook …
c) open the second bottle of wine …
d) go for a walk in the beautiful summer weather …
e) stop at the neighborhood ice cream parlor for late-night cones … which he paid for …

Or when he said:

“So … I just need to start being a giant tool and treat you badly, and you’ll fall madly in love with me.”

Or maybe the line was never crossed and he is still just my friend, same as always.
