When someone drives you batshit crazy, does it mean you're in love? Or should you run like hell?

Holy crap on a cracker.  He takes about 8 hours to answer a text.  Literally.  Sometimes I won't hear from him for like, 2 weeks, and then he seems confused that I am irked.  He has a smile that makes me forget my name.  He can talk about a subject for 45 minutes non-stop (just him talking) and then, without warning, change the subject to something completely irrelevant and random.  For example:  Last night we were driving and he was telling me about his take on the presidential candidates.  It was intense, then all of a sudden, we pass a street called "Kitts" and he says "How do streets get named, anyway?  Who came up with Kitts?  Is that someone's name? I want to name a street.  How do I do that?"  He looks over at me inquisitively, like I have the answer to this.  I just blink at him and say "What?"  He is completely serious and waits for me to answer him.  He does this all the time.

Then there is the whole I'm usually right yet he never listens thing.

Phone call:
John: I'm leaving now.
Me:  OK, meet you in about 45 minutes.
John:  No, it should only be about 30 minutes.
Me:  Oh?  Usually it takes you 45 minutes or so.
John: Not this time of night.
Me:  K. (rolling my eyes)

47 minutes later he arrives.

Driving and lost:
John: Uh, I think I did that wrong.
Me: Uh, yep.
John:  Isn't 2nd street up to the left?
Me: No, I think you make a right up here, then a left.
John:  No, I think it's left first.
Me:  I don't think so - the ocean is over there, so it has to be right to get back out on the main highway.
He makes a left.
John: Crap!
Me: (giggling)  I told you.
John: Yes, OK, you were right.  You are right about lots of things.
Me:  Yes, I know.  You hate that don't you?
John:  No.  Yes.

But then at the end of the night (well, usually around 4 am or so) we will be sitting in his car, and he will lay his head on my chest and hold on to me like a lost little boy while I run my fingernails through his hair, and everything that seemed wrong in the world will suddenly seem right and I will feel more peaceful then I've ever felt in my life.

What am I going to DO with him??

We are both emotionally unavailable, yet I think he needs me as much as I need him.  We are both committment-phobes at this point in our lives, yet we keep seeing other.  5 months now?  He will completely tick me off, but I will keep it to myself, then he will ironically and spontaneously say something so incredibly sweet it almost doesn't seem real and I have to stop being mad at him.  His kisses are so sweet and good it almost pisses me off.

What the hell??
