Patiently accept ANY reaction he gives you. Make things about your need to “bleed out your feelings” and don't attack him for shutting down or push him to open up. If you give him room to react however he feels, he will come to you eventually and share his feelings with you. He will do what he can to be there for you once he “emotionally recuperates”.
When he does start to talk to you about your feelings (whether it’s right away or after a bit of time) be prepared to be surprised. Allow yourself to TRUST in what he has to say. Trust in his feelings for you and in his deep desire to please you.
Help guide him toward a solution to your hurt feelings.
Don’t forget to also ask him what YOU CAN DO to help the relationship grow, too! He may know what he needs from you but has been too timid to ask.
You may be quite happy with the way things turn out and the deep bond of emotional closeness that may begin to form between you both.
