Hey. My opinion is that he is either ambivalent for whatever reason we may not know without his help, or that is isn't fully available so he can't commit to a full pursuit in good conscience.
I don't get why there's always some reference to men having big egos as if women's are any different though. However, egos are important protective mechanisms for human beings, and even if someone has a big ego, the most important thing to consider about it is what is the basis of whatever attempts a person may make to protect themselves.
I liked that you asked directly what he wanted, though if it's too early it might easily be taken as you want a level of certainty, decisiveness or commitment that may just be premature. I've found that it's quite helpful to talk about the pace at which both parties usually like to proceed in romantic relations and relationships.
Hope this was of some help.

You didn't do anything wrong. If you want something specific, why waste your time? His interest seems to be low and looks like he wants to keep you as back up. Bye! lol
