Most Helpful Girl
It means he doesn't just want to be ''fuck buddies'' anymore but is having a hard time grasping the situation, he's not ready for what he wants so that's why he had an alibi for not wanting to hook up. Take things slow, don't get so sexual so fast, invest some more emotions first... It seems like he's considering the fucking as something much more intimate than how it used to be the last time between you two.
'its the little things in life' by this he means spending time with you, enjoying the walk instead of running to the destination; he probably wants to savour the relationship and take as much time possible with it. He must really like you, but he might not be all that aware of it, good luck.
