I feel like a boy crazy middle schooler all over again

I recently reconnected with a guy that I hadn't seen in ten years. (We were fourteen then, and we're twenty-four now). After getting some friendly drinks, I'm interested in pursuing things further.

I recently met up with someone from an after school activity back in middle school that I hadn't seen since, uh, middle school. I went to this meeting up for drinks with a feeling of dread, maybe expecting to make a new friend but mostly dreading the potential awkwardness, and I was pleasantly surprised. And now I can't stop thinking about him. Ugh!
In other words: I had a crush on him when I was thirteen. It's rearing it's ugly (?) head again.
I was getting definite signals that he was at least flirting with me, and he mentioned that he was going to be really busy for the next few weeks, but that we should get together after his life calms down. (Legitimate work/apartment issues - I just want to leave out some detail). I'm wondering how I can help move that process forward, and not cockblock myself into another friend-zone situation.
A little background: I'm very attractive, but I'm a little rough around the edges and I've always been "one of the guys."
