Uhhh...how would you take this response?

So the guy I’m talking to right now lives in South America. We used to talk on video chat every day sometimes more than once. It’s died down a lot, I get it. He still talks to me but then some days I basically just fall off the edge of the earth to him. I finally had the courage to straight him ask him what his deal was because I was tired of being led on. He responded by saying that if it weren’t for the distance things would be different and that there’s no rush that he just “likes to let things flow.” I don’t really know how to take that? Like a trial period? Like, let me see if I like this kinda thing? Ladies help me decode it please because I might be stupidly blinded by what I feel for this guy and I’m probably wasting my time and I need a wake up call.
