If you’ve never asked these kinds of questions before, be gentle with the guy and give him some space. This may be new territory for him, but that doesn’t mean he’s not capable. If he struggles, do a little show and tell and share your answers to the same questions.
Rule #3. Observe his behavior and be honest about his reaction. If he makes an attempt but isn’t quite perfect, that’s a good sign. Relationships are about helping each other build intimacy and over time these kinds of conversations will just become part of your relationship. If he flat out refuses to answer the questions, then you have to ask yourself, “Do I want to be with a guy who refuses to be emotionally intimate with me?” If you love yourself, the answer will be “No.”
