So why would guys say things like this instead of telling the truth? I mean I basically put the words in his mouth.

I think the guy was actually telling the truth about being too busy. But i guess there is another possible reason:
Guys have two stages of evaluation when searching for mates. The first stage is the visual evaluation- basically he is "checking you out". If you match at least 80% of his personal preferences, he moves on to phase two- the personality evaluation. This is when he starts to flirt and hang out with you and possibly even go on dates to get to know you better. He is testing you to see if you are emotionally compatible with him. But if he finds some kind of character trait that he doesn't like, he will end up losing interest in you. He is still attracted to you nonetheless, but he no longer considres you compatible for a mate. In other words- you passed phase one, but failed phase two of evaluation. Although guys usually stick around and talk to you every once in a while, even if you don't pass phase two, so as not to seem rude. But if you failed phase two, it means he is not interested anymore.

Because they are stupid, because they don't have the face to tell you the truth... guys mature a lot later than girls... and in few cases there are serious reasons behind their awkward behaviours...
