What are some ways to open up to a man?

I've been emotionally unavailable my whole life, meaning I don't like to open up or share intimate details about myself. Its been a pattern with me throughout my dating life and its most likely the reason why my relationships don't last very long.

I met a sweet guy who I've been on 5 dates with. On our 5th date he practically opened up about everything, told me about his past relationships and completely let his guard down. He told me that he enjoys my company and hasn't felt this way in years, but he wants to get to know me better and feels like I'm emotionally unavailable.

It terrifies me to open up but at the same time, I don't want him to lose interest because of that. What are some ways to open up to a man? When he says he wants to know me better, what exactly does he mean? What are some baby steps?

Thoughts are appreciated.
