Maybe his consistently negative attitude towards life creates a self-fulfilling prophect, and helps to explain his lack of lasting relationships ? Apparently he, for whatever reason, came to think more of this relationship than you did, and is taking it even more seriously than you do.
There's probably no alternative to at least trying to talk this out with him - meeting publically, perhaps in a coffee shop to reduce the risk of confrontation - and to take the "blame" on yourself - you liked the chats you used to have, but were not and are not looking for anything more serious, deep or lasting, with him or anyone else.
