Why are boys so difficult & so frustrating & so hard to understand??

So I've been talking to this one guy for a while...about 3 1/2 months or so and I was instantly attracted to him when i met him during that first month and we've been talking once or twice a week (mostly because he's really busy with work and other things)...yes this is an online "thing" if you guys were wondering. The funny thing is that I don't believe in "online" dating or whatever you call it, but with this guy I actually want to do that. He's really different from other guys I've met and I really like talking to him. He makes me laugh, smile, feel happy, and whenever I talk to him time flies by so quick. However, I don't think he feels the same way about he. I think he only think of me as an "online" friend or someone who he likes talking to. And no, I haven't hinted or said anything about me having a crush on him. Mostly because I'm scared that he won't talk to me anymore or it'd be really awkward between us. I kinda like what we have, except I also kinda wish we could have something more. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that he's about 2 yrs older than me (more likely 1 1/2 yrs) and he lives in Illinois and I'm in California. I don't think I'll be moving there and neither will he be moving here. I don't know what to do...I really want to have some kind of "relationship" with him but I'm really scared what would happen and plus I strongly don't think he likes me the same way I like him....not in the potential online gf/bf way. Plus, he's a really private person I mean some personal questions I ask him he won't respond to them...and it kinda sucks because I'm a pretty open person. Also, I don't think I'm his type...even though he says he doesn't really have a type.Â
