Expectations and favours?

Me: Tell me more about what you wanted in ABC project, I would work on that. It would help me take my mind off other things that I have going on.
X: I don’t no whether you do all this and expect more out of me.. because we have been just the same
Me: Nope, I do not
X: I don’t want to give any work. I generally don’t like to tell others
Me: Not just to me? I only thought you wanted to work on it that’s why
X: I want to do it.. But why should I get it done by you. It is a lot of work sometimes and I don’t like to keep favours.
Me: Because you think I would expect something more from you? Did I ever call in a favour?
X: It seems so by these conversations. You don’t but you expect, that’s only natural.

How can I ever be the same after this conversation? Neither that I expect the other person to behave the same way as earlier after this. But what are the chances that two people have felt this way – especially after I thought we knew each other well enough. Maybe that is the problem – I thought.
