Does he like me back or not? wtf?

so, about a month ago i told this boy i like him. he has a girlfriend so i made it very clear that i only liked him and wasn't trying to get in the middle of his relationship. so, about two weeks into summer he texts me asking why i like him. i told him why i do and asked him why he needs to know. he kept messing around for a bit but i made him get it out. he had said "i just wanted to know and also guess why". i said, "uh cause you're tryna mess around w/ my heart?" and he said "no, i'd never do that to you. but guess again."

so i guessed again. i said "uh well cause you like me or something?" and he started messing around again until i settled him down. then, he told me he'd tell me how he felt before but not now. so i agreed to it. he told me "i like you. don't tell anyone". i said, "you have a girl tho" and he said "i didn't tell you about now"

please notice he said LIKE not LIKED or USED TO LIKE YOU.

what does this all mean?
