Don’t stick around and try to prove him wrong, it’s a losing battle.
If you’re already dating him: Tell him something like “Look, I’m not into doing the casual, undefined thing.
It was great getting to know you though.” Sticking around and showing him how great you are will get you nowhere.
Actually, it’ll get you trapped in relationship no-mans land where you’re in a relationship, but not really.
Hold your own and don’t be afraid to walk away when you don’t get what you want, this is the only way to have a shot at getting what you want.

And don’t place extra demands on him and get on his case for not being as available to you.
Instead of thinking about how great everything will be when he gets himself sorted, take him as he is right here and now.
If he isn’t getting out of a relationship, then it’s very likely his strong affections are a sign of some kind of attachment issues or self-esteem problems. If you’re in the early stages of dating, try not to see him more than 2-3 times a week.
