He might have just been trying to make it non-threatening for you. Or trying to imply that he didn't have any expectations for results. Sounds like something my therapist might say, though he'd also explain why, I think. It might be worth asking, since last time you asked you got a good response.

But the paper-tearing thing I don't get. What was his point?

Sometimes it's just not a good fit.

In that case, it's time to apply "sunk cost theory". You can't think of what you have invested in something. That money's gone. You have to balance future investments of time and money against potential return. If it looks like a good investment, go for it. If it doesn't, cut your losses and look for a better one.
