I have a male friend who I have been really good friends with for a very long time. he has a girlfriend who i also really like, but I think he might have a crush on me. lately i've noticed that he hugs me tighter and longer when he greets me and he kisses me on the cheek, but no one else. When he's talking to me he grabs my arm and does that gentle squeeze thing. I don't know. For a while I thought nothing of it, but other people have been noticing that he is always finding some reason to touch me and always puts on more charm with me. should I ask him about it or just leave things the way they are? normally I wouldnt care, but I just feel like I should make it clear that he and i are just friends.

Talk to him. If you get along with his girlfriend then you really don't want to create excess drama. You know how chicks get when someone steals their man... I have people clinging on to me all the time so I'm mostly oblivious to when people actually like me, but if he's been extra charming, maybe that means what you think it does.

The problem with males and females whether best friends or mere acquaintances is that there is always the distinguishing feature of being sexually opposite and opposites do attract. Cheers!!

Maybe he is trying to do that and i think you should ask him about that and know what he say to you about the hugs and kisses and maybe you can understand what he wants :) but are you in love with him? or you just like him to be friends? Well hop you will have a nice day and a good week ;)

Follow your instincts and let him know what you have noticed and that, as much as you like him as a friend, that is as far as it goes, and you wanted to make this clear to him.
