Most Helpful Guy
Rebound alert. It could work, but your odds are not good, unfortunately. The way that things beguine is oddly important for people, and it sounds like he might well be rebounding off you.
This is a hard one. I would say find some way to talk with him about it, may not be possible. It may not even be worth talking about, really, as its nearly impossible to mention without risking insulting him.
I hate to say this (take it with as much salt as you wish), but maybe distance yourself from him just a little and see what happens.
