moving slow or blowing me off?

Long story short...met a guy on line, we had first date, went really, really well. He asked me out for the second date that night. Second date we went to a flea market, then he asked to take me for a ride for a while, then he asked me to go to brunch, then he asked me to look at a neighborhood he wanted to buy a house in. All the while, I kept expecting the date to stop at the end of each "activity", but he kept extending it. Finished with 20 minutes of smooching, then I went home. He followed it up the next day with two emails telling me about his day.
Then...nothing. I responded to his emails, then heard nothing. I sent a text saying "Lets get together", he responded apologizing for no response, saying he was busy that coming weekend but he was definitely up for getting together again.
Then nothing. So I sent another email the next Sunday, chatty and breezy, just suggesting we get together again. He sends back an email giving me a few days to work with, I send him a response...
Then...no response. So I text him a couple days later, saying "Well, you said maybe Tuesday, but here it is Tuesday, so I'm guessing that's out, how about Thursday?" He responds, we make a date. Get together, it's great, like hanging out with my oldest friends. He drives me to my car (only a block away), 20 more smooching minutes, a text saying that he enjoys my company.
Then I went out of town for the weekend. I sent an e-mail Sunday morning, again chatty and breezy, but suggesting we get together again. He replies Monday night, suggesting maybe Thursday, but that might not work because he might go see his daughter. I sent an email back on Tuesday morning, saying let me know about Thursday, but here it is Weds. afternoon and I haven't heard back.
OK, I guess that wasn't so short. Here's the question ladies and gents, fire away with your responses...
If he appears to be having a good time, if he responds to emails, but not in a particularly timely manner, doesn't outright reject getting together, but doesn't make much of an attempt to do so, tells me he likes my company and enjoys spending time with me, is happy to make out (no funny business yet, though)...what's the deal? He's got some major things going on in his life, his job is truly busy, tells me specifically why he is busy...is he just moving slow or am I that thick that I'm not seeing something?
