Do guys get scared of dating?

There’s this guy who shows all of the signs of him being interested in me, and knows that I’m interested in him, but hasn’t said whether or not he was interested in me. Is that a bad thing? I know he’s inexperienced, but he knows I’m interested, and I don’t want to invest my time into someone who turns out to say “I don’t feel the same way”.
when I told him that I liked him, he said that he’d love to see me more and hangout more. We’re planing on meeting up (we live 8 hours away, but met at college) and he seems really excited about that.
