My commitment phobe ex broke up with me last month, and we are now dating again. During the break we never stopped communicating and he volunteer to do me favors.
We we finally talked about it and we both want to be with each other. He even bought a self help book to help.
He only read one chapter and he said he is unsure still but now we decided we are dating again just not yet at bf/gf title. We are not having sex even I know he want it badly
is there a way I can help to motivate him to read the book quicker? Or help him to open up more?

Sounds like you are on the right track. You need to stay emotionally strong to not let his moods / uncertainty affect you. You need to be your own and his emotional anchor.1

I see a good Start in which you Both on the Road to recovery where nursing and Nurturing is Playing a Huge Part. Your Patience of Jobe is paying off to the point where he is Reading a 'Self help book' in which he even purchased himself, no twisting his arm.
Go slow with the flow with Joe here, dear. Rome was not built in a day and you seem to be on a Patient path where I believe that with time, he will come around again to be not just Dating but Mating and in a Real relationship once more. He is taking his time and feels no pressure and feels too he has the ball in his own hands.
For now, don't move too fast or he could grow these cold duck feet and maybe Next time No Dating Nor... Mating.
Good luck. xx2
