How do you know if a guy is leading you on your using you to keep his options open?

This guy I’ve been dating for a while broke things off with me due to his mental health issues but says he still wants to be friends and have me in his life. He said that he’s open to dating again once he’s in a better place, but I’m unsure if he’s using that as an excuse to keep me around and keep his options open or if he’s being genuine. We went one day without speaking and then we went back to falling asleep on the phone together and talking all day. I expressed to him how I felt and he got upset with me. I want to believe him but I don’t want to put myself in a position to be hurt. What should I do?
