You do not want to think about it not unless he is the one who opens up about it to you. It is best that it came from him to set the record straight. Sometimes, it is not enough to show how you feel. You have to say it directly to the person so she will know your intentions. You have to make everything clear to her. Do not send mixed signals if you do not have plans to pursue her. You really need to have a conversation to be open about how you feel or to clear things out.
