Most men don't like 'deep and meaningful' conversations.. they think actions speak louder than words!
not because of you but his own fears and insecurities...fear spelled out is a False Evaluation Appearing Real..some people are not real to their own self so how can they be real to others...question is do you know his dreams as well as his fear...men sometimes are not great communicators like you women...just hang in there and he will tell you when his time is right
He does not trust you yet you have to train him if ot has been more than a year or if you have been #%%$ing him sleeplng in the same bed more than a few months take him in your mouth gently. Bite then you ask him if he trusts you
He might get the message
