For the record, I second this "gut feeling". My first thought was - "He's got a possible new girl (maybe mono? vanilla? - so he he trying on not-poly, not-kinky to see if it could fit
) but isn't sure if things are going to progress."
I'd take a step back. Let go of expectations. And see what comes out in the wash. Whether you decide to "stay friends" or re-engage would depend on how he handles whatever it is.
