I've been hanging out with this guy for a little over a month now. We've been intimate but not had sex. He's a bit older than me and never had a long-term relationship. Lately he's been a little aloof and I'm not sure if it's because he's gun-shy/not sure of himself (his past two 'relationships' were open ones he didn't realize were open.) and what he wants or if it's me. We haven't spoken for a day or so and I want to clear the air and be open and honest with him about "what's going on" and if we like each other or if he's just not that into me, but I don't know the best way to go about it.

If he didn't realize the relationships where open he's probably not the best communicator, just a guess. I'd actually recommend not prefacing it with any sort of statement, just wait till you're in a good-natured or happy conversation and just ask it in a kind of off-hand or casual way. Just ask straight out or use a "I almost introduced you as a my boyfriend when we met my friend" type statement. He may get quiet or something, but if he gets that way you'll know he's not ready and willing. Just my 2 cents!0
