Why would a guy go silent after a serious talk & a week later say “he didn’t know what to say”?

Life corcstances mean dating would be difficult. He maintains contact and is very flirty. I asked him if he wanted to date for potential (nothing too serious straight off but to see where it goes). He said no so I wished him well genuinely hoping he finds someone who makes him happy. He went quiet and didn’t respond for a week, then casually pops up asking how I am. I said I didn’t think he wanted to talk again after the radio silence, he just apologised saying he didn’t know what to say, but that was it.

What was that about?

Any other thoughts guys? I’d be really grateful for some wise input. Thanks.
