When a guy said "I hope we can speak soon when I finish this project" what does that really mean?

I told him as much I would love to keep dating him exclusively I need to move on from him because we haven't seen each other for a month and we only text like once a week. I also don't feel like he still wants me.

He responded telling how stress he is and he is just in self preservation mode during intense time. He said he really does like me a lot but he understand that I have to take care of myself rather than dealing with his chaotic life. He said I hope we can speak soon as soon as I get out of this project.
