Is his behavior a good sign?

My new boyfriend (we had been super close friends for like an year) asked me if I wanted to make out with him in bed with just our underwear on.
I'm not ready for that yet, so I told him no, but I felt sorry to tell him so. However he apologized to me multiple times for asking me that and he said he will wait if I'm not ready.
Is this a good sign? I mean, could this possibly mean he really likes me? Or maybe it is not, because he wanted to see me immediately naked and it means he just wants sex?
