Was he just lonely ... or hoping for more?

The other day at lunch (not a "gay" place at all), the guy seated next to me at the bar struck up a conversation, that quickly escalated to what would have been a very successful first date. A couple of times he made kind of a point of mentioning his interest in women (mentioning ex-girlfriends, and how good looking one of them is), which I took as possibly a signal that he was lonely and liked chatting, but not to expect much more. The ending was quite awkward, as was almost unavoidable I suppose. I'll add that he and I are both fairly average looking, and he seemed to have a mild case of cerebral palsy, or some similar condition. I would very MUCH liked to have dated him, but am left confused as to what happened? The conversation became a bit ... personal (not sexual) rather quickly, which seemed fine by both of us though. Having never BEEN a straight guy, I don't know what "boundaries" are "normal" for them. Is there something I missed in thinking about the incident that would help confirm his level of ... interest? Thank in advance for reading!
