Look, I know people tell you to pay attention to man's actions, and that's true, you should. But that's only if he never really shares how he feels one way or another.
If a man tells you that he doesn't feel anything for you, just believe him. It will save you heartache later. Plus, it hopefully allows you to control what happens - which you don't seem to be doing.
Here's your problem. You like him and his actions indicate that he likes you too. But he's saying something so completely opposite you're confused. Except you shouldn't be. Take that man at his word and stop letting him come over all the time and plan out some random future. Tell him he's sending mixed signals and that until he knows what he wants, be it you or not you, you need your space.
I'm not going to tell you that he does like you, because maybe he doesn't. Only he knows.
I don't know him. But instead of worrying about him, focus on you and what you're doing. You allow him to invade your space and confuse you so kick him out.
