What does this mean..?

So my friend was talking to my crush and said that me & him should date. He was like "no, she doesn't like me..." and my friend promised him that I did. She then asked if he liked me and he said "yes, but I don't see her as a gf since we're so close friends." What does this mean? Do I still have a chance?? If so, how do I get him to fall for me?☹️
