i recently asked my friends with benefits would he date me seriously, and he said he doesn't think it would work out if we dated. i tell him im scared that i'm really starting to like him and he's happy about it. we recently started holding hands as well. he's really touchy now. he gave me an unexpected expensive gift. it's just going to make it harder for me to not like him. but he's already decided we are not compatible, and he'd be willing to let me go if someone better came along.

I think he is all Talk and even with his Action, he is showing me that 'He's already decided you Are... Compatible.
The writing on the wall and all is that he has these inner feelings for you or he would not be doing the 'Unexpected' and expressing even happiness in 'I'm really starting to like him.'
However, he is Not Ready nor Raring at present to be this Hooked at the hip Nor Two birds of a feather, although he wants you to Stick together because of the Other so-called "benefits."
He most likely is telling you about the Dating deal for his own reason for the season, but from where I am sitting he is making it a sweet Deal now, he is merely nursing and nurturing this, doesn't want to feel pressured at all, and is keeping you at arm's length for the time being so he has his space. It's sort of like Having his cake and eating it too.
Go slow with this flow with Joe. I see some amazing chemistry that just could end up to be sizzling one day and go with a bang in being A... Potential partnership, you never know.
Good luck. xx0
