How do you know you like someone for the right reasons?

Quick back story: I got out of long term relationship about 6 months ago. It was abusive and I stuck around because I thought I could help him but I ended up getting hurt and drained in the end. Well one of my very close friend has been helping me get through my break up. He was in a similar bad relationship as I was. He has been talking to me just about everyday. He has never tried anything on me or made a move. He hints compliments here and there and I've slowly have been falling for him. I just don't know if I'm falling for him for the right or wrong reasons. I do adore him and respect him. We both want the same things in life, but how do I know if I'm liking him for the reasons?

    You could feel close because he’s giving you the attention/affection you never had. If it’s to get over your ex, then it’s for the wrong reason. Genuine care about this person and adoration, right reasons

    You say this person is a "very close friend". Why would you want to risk that?
