what does this old guy mean by "take advantage of" a young woman?

An old guy (friend/acquaintance) kindly invited me to sleep at his house when I needed a place to sleep one night. I'm a female in my 20's and he was probably in his 60's.
He told me he had a couch and a bed (his bed).
He said I can sleep on the bed.
So I said "oh, you can sleep on the bed." of course implying that I would sleep on his couch.
He misunderstood and apparently thought I meant we would sleep together on the bed. So he says,
"Oh no, I don't want to take advantage of you, so you sleep on the bed and I take the couch."
I was a little weirded out by him saying this. Is this normal?
What do you think he meant by "take advantage of" me?
...umm have sex? No, right? I just have a hard time believing that he would even think of something like that to do with someone that is so much younger than him.
Is this creepy or not really?
I ended up not going, btw.
