If you are meeting him on a one on one basis, then I don't think he sees you as just a friend. All my male "just" friends are in my college group . We hang out together, study together etc. but all the guys I have have met on a "we-are-just-friends-date" kept hitting on me and some even tried to ..umm get into my pants , when all they were just friends (to me) .
So if you want to keep a "just friends" relationship with him, i'd suggest you bring some mutual friends along.

I don't think I was much help, but be careful. Misunderstandings ruin good friendships and relationships.
