It's obvious that he views your relationship with him different to what your expectations are. If he really doesn't want to get involved with you, whatever excuses he uses, then you can't make him.
Find someone who wants and needs to be you and someone who doesn't use excuses to string you along.
Maybe you should date others, too.
Why are you against casual dating/
First, I'd like to commend you for wanting to wait to be in a monogamous relationship first before you have sex. Don't lower your standards my dear.
Second, it sounds like he is keeping his options open. Since, it's only been 2.5 months, I'd recommend to continue to date him as well as dating other men. Within 3-6 month time frame you should know where you stand with any man.
Have fun! You are young with a bright future ahead of you! Don't settle for someone that is keeping you as an option. Keep your options open and you will eventually meet someone that is interested in a monogamous relationship. You will find men that won't expect sex. They are out there.
Good Luck! Email me if you have any questions.

I appreciate your standards that you don't sleep with guys casually and that you need more of a commitment before you will enter into a sexual relationship.
But there are many more steps for what you had with this fellow before being considered exclusive. He just didn't seem like he wanted to develop the relationship any further.
