Well, depending on the reason why he doesn't want everyone to know. If it's something because of parental reasons, then that's okay but if it's that he wants to keep a single and available image, then that's not good and you might want to talk to him about that.
So when you say breaking the touch barrier...do you mean that even when it's just you two he doesn't seem to get very close? Well, if that's so, just sit a little closer to him when you're watching a movie or whatever, and whisper sweet things into his ear so that he has to lean in to hear. Assuming you guys hold hands, try being the one initiating it and try different hand holding styles. Just before you leave, smile and give him a quick hug or something. Start small and see how he reacts and then go from there.1
