boy drama at school

their is this I like. and I think he likes me. we have been flirting and its been confusing, because he says we are dating one minute but the next we arent. so i got one of my friends to ask if we were dating and he literally said i forced him to. because the night before i asked on text ( i know stupid) and he said we are. He told me he wanted to keep our relationship secret but told the most biggest, loudest asdwhole i have met about us. I finally gave up and said i dont want to date, he turned around and said but i want us to date. this guy is really shy and stuff but is so confusing should I give him a chance or drop it all now.
