I'm 23 dating a 28 yo and we both are shy and quiet when it comes to our relationship. We have liked each other for two years and have been dating for two months. We only kiss each other hello and goodbye and that's it. We haven't held hands or done any of the flirting stuff and I know he's taking it slow until I get comfortable because I'ma virgin and he isn't. But I want to break the awkwardness and become more like a normal couple but don't know how. I'm also leaving for two months and don't know if he's waiting untili come back to be more serious. Any thoughts?

If you want to hold his hand and you feel like he's holding back so that you're comfortable, I'd say just reach out and hold his hand. You might have to be the one to break the touch barrier.
But overall, my advice is to communicate with him. You two have liked each other and played the guessing game enough. Now that you are in a relationship, it's seriously time to move past that. Don't try to figure out if he is going to wait for you, ask him. Ask him what he wants to do while you're gone and have an actual discussion about it.
Is it easy to do? No. But it's a lot better than trying to guess what the other person is thinking.
