Been seeing a guy officially for 4 months now and he courted me about 4 months prior. athough he never officially asked me to be his girlfriend (which i think is tacky anyway), he has made it clear we are not seeing anyone else, and if i were to, it would be cheating on him and we would break up.
His bestfriend came to visit him from out of town for a couple of days and he set up a date for us to meet each other. He also asked me to meet one of his other close friend before that. He texts me all through out the day and night before he sleeps. He has somewhat introduced my presence in his life to his mom over the phone and of course our picture on his facebook which his mother and family comment on. He's very caring, very chivalrous, and everytime i brought up something I did not like, he makes sure it is resolved and I am happy with the resolution. He jokes about our future children, but for the life of me, I can't figure out how he really feels. this guy is very quiet about his feelings. Even when he says he misses me, he would say it sarcastically and it sounds like he doesn't want to put himself in a vulnerable position. I feel I am falling in love with him but I myself have severe trust issues and this is my second relationship (first one lasted over a decade of marriage) and I definitely don't have enough experience to tell whether a man is serious or not. Can a man actually do all this and still could be insincere about the whole relationship? We are in our early 30s.

This sounds like a sincere guy who is just very, very afraid of expressing his feelings verbally. His actions show his feelings but everyone needs to hear - in words - how their partner feels about them and the relationship. Next birthday, Valentine's Day, whatever, when he asks what you would like, tell him the greatest gift in the world would be for him to let his guard down, trust you, and tell you how he feels.0
