He doesn't want a relationship right now (probably he means not with ME) but says he likes me back and CAN imagine something with me?

So this guy and i (both university students) have been cuddling (spooning, kiss on the head, holding hands when sleeping, wresting) and spending time with each other for almost a year. I've kissed him once, he didn't reject it but didn't reciprocate it but everything went on the same after that. We seem to totally click. I finally told him a feel like i am developing feelings for him. He responded positively and i think he also said he also has feelings for me, but definitely he loves spending time with me, its all so carefree, we totally get each other, and he can imagine something with me. I also asked him what the thought of friends w benefits where he didn't refuse but i immediately cut in before he could respond saying that i wouldn't do that. He then agreed it would be to a shame and that he had once had a friends with benefits reationship and it ended badly. He sees me between a friend and a relationship. He kept on telling me he wasn't "sure" about a realtionship and stuff, but i found out through his friend that he doesn't want a relationship now, because of just getting out of the old one which wasn't to good according to the friend- which had lasted 2 years. The guy i like also said he wants to catch up on what he missed in the two years and wants to take a break. Does he want something from me? would he want an open realtionship with me? Am i missing something here? Does he just want to be friends and not lose me?
