Waiting is a risk/benefit ratio type of question. Here's what I mean:
You of course are worried about scaring him off. That's the risk of being open and "natural". Right?
But remember, this natural is natural to you. And you are comfortable with this natural. His natural may be this halting, rarely open type of behavior. Not a lot of reinforcement. You having a lot of faith in his positive feelings toward you because he doesn't let them out a lot. Etc.
That's not necessarily a lot of benefit for someone who's emotionally open as you are. So you have to decide if you want to have this type of relationship, wherein you are every so often not sure about how he feels and he closes up. He may not close up to the point of dropping out of your life for a couple of months, but he might become an emotional clam, so to speak.
Is this worth it to you? Now, it might be. You and only you know if this is a man who you want to give this type of latitude and attention to. If so, then you could wait two, four, six months and still be in the same boat (I guess 6 months you'd probably say is too long, the ratio isn't worth it, you'd take the risk of being open and having "the conversation"). But certainly 2 months is a possible time frame for him, right?
So, it's in your hands, remember that. You are the one who has to decide what you want. You don't have to decide all or nothing today. But give yourself an idea. If 3 months, 12 weeks, is as long as you want to wait, fine. You set the parameters of your risk/benefit ratio here, okay?
And if you decide you need to move on at some point because this is just too closed up for you and you need a different type of relationship, that's certainly okay as well and I would support that also.
I wish you the very best!
