He asked for a break but is acting normail

HI, So last week I asked my boyfriend if we could have a talk about "things." I went to his house after work and we did our normal hang out routine.. then the drinks started flowing and I joked with how I knew he would avoid the talk. He responded with "Okay, lets go talk"

Before I told him how I felt, I asked him if he had anything he wanted to share or if anything was bothering him. He blurted out, "I think we need to take a break" Wait... what?? That was my response. I was going to tell him how much I loved him and I wanted to make sure he was ready to have a serious relationship.

Here's the twist.. I have a 5 year old.

We have been dating for 6 months. I just started bring my son around him about a month ago. Nothing too intimate.. taking him lunch at work.. little things.

He mentioned when we were having our "talk," (at this point I'm confused and crying) that he wasn't sure if he was ready to take on the "step dad" role. I didn't like the term he used. I corrected him and told him I understood but my son already has a dad.

Well I stayed the night because he wanted me to.. he was very affectionate and understanding and two days later I went to pick up my stuff from his house.

This is where I'm confused..

He indirectly asked me to spend the day with him.. What I mean by that is he asked me if I wanted to order food and watch a movie with him.. then He asked if I wanted to go get ice cream and coffee. By the time I needed to go home, because I had work the next day. He did his usual bedtime routine, "go to bed baby, I'll be there in a minute."

I was soooo confused.

The next morning he was holding me and hugging me and asking me not to leave.. when I walked out the door he would yell for me to come back for another kiss. (He has never done that before...being overly affectionate)

Its been about 5 days since the "talk" And he's been fine.. Acting completely normal.

I'm confused, frustrated, and I feel like I'm walking on egg shells.
