So is he just full of mind games/letting me down gently/not really sure?
Should I give up?

Sounds like you are in a bit of a pickle, :/ which I admit is never fun. To me, It sounds like this guy truly does like you, a lot, but is terrified of the thought of losing you if a relationship between the two of you didn't work out. I personally, would NOT give up. Talk with him, and ask if that's what it is, and maybe say you two will give it a shot for a bit and if it doesn't work out then you will simply remain friends.
Hopefully that's helpful!
