Is this bad? Or acceptable?

Anyways, he called and asked me out 4 times, and each time he either didn't give me enough notice, or I had planned something so far in advance that I wasn't ever able to go. Finally, after New Years he stopped calling. I partially don't blame him b/c he'd been rejected so many times.
Well, he called last Wednesday!! He wanted to know if I would like to come to the beach while he was down there... (he was already there on his last spring break ever- finishing law school). He offered a place to stay and plenty of good times... I just had to hop in the car and drive 4 hours. We flirted a bit over the phone, but he even told me that he wouldn't hit on me: he would just really enjoy my company (along w/ several of his friends that were there as well). I apologized once again, but I had a bridesmaids party on Saturday. I told him that I would like to get together still though, and we made tentative plans for me to come to his house and cook dinner together.
My question is: was his invite inappropriate? I really would like to date him, but the whole thing feels strange. What's the male perspective on what this guy is thinking? Am I some sort of "second or third runner up", "till something better comes along", or does it seem that he's protecting himself from getting rejected again. I also might add that one of the previous dates he had asked me on was an art showing being held in his honor. I was going out of town, but I did stop by there on the day of the show "just to check" if he would be there. He showed me all of his work and we chatted a bit... so he knows that I'm interested.
