In particular the official game, Neon Genesis Evangelion 2, has the official stats for Kaworu's and Shinji's affection as high starter in romantic and low in friendship.
In the 4koma gag comic strip not confused with the anime adaptationPuchi Eva or Petit Eva, Kaworu's blatantly in love with Shinji he desires to be his wife in his profile and calls Gendo his father in law. There are a number of teases in several strips, including one with Kaworu moving in with his family the angels to live with the Ikaris. Yui's supportive of their relationship and teases Shinji about it. For a online Valentine's Day Special campaign in a mobile phone, Shinji and Kaworu were drawn sharing the Red String of Fate tied to their pinky, both bashful with a multiple heart patterned background.
In one of the previews for 3. The implication was that the boy was Kaworu, though. Later on he blushes when Kaworu tells Shinji he can just call him by his first name. Rebuild's theme songs Beautiful World and Sakura Nagashi are both very much to do with Kaworu and Shinji's relationship.

Through suggestive dialogue and giggling it's hinted that Misato was feeling up her mutually naked charge in some rather provocative ways, under the blanket of being "innocent girlie fun. Amusing as the idea may be, it's not canon, though you can really imagine what you want with Eva And there's a scene in Rebuild 2.
