What do you think of a guy who says: 'I want to keep me options open for as long as possible' ' I want to meet new people' I think it is a guy who is being open, honest and upfront about not wanting any kind of exclusive, serious relationship with you at this time and that he wants you to be aware of where he stands on the issue and where you stand with him.
