I'm in love with someone in not even dating!

Okay so me and this guy have been hanging out for 3 weeks now. He's literally the guy of my dreams. I've never been so happy with someone in my life, definitely feels like love. Problem is I think he is scared to ask me out because he knows it's real but doesn't wanna be broken hearted. I believe if a guy really likes you then he will date you. I'm patiently waiting but what if I'm waiting for nothing? My heart hurts every time I'm alone because I wanna be with him. HELP! How do I get this feeling to go away or what should I do?
