It sounds like he might be a bit confused on what he feels au wants. My first thought was maybe he was shy. But, shy people don't normally come out and express the feeling verbally. Maybe he was trying to get a response from you, to see how wewe feel? I think the only way to find out for certain would be to ask him. I would make sure what feelings wewe have for him, so wewe could talk it out. Good luck and God bless.
