I talked with him more today and told him I would reconsider getting physical if he felt the same way. Since you all said a relationship isn’t real without it. He’s open to it, but we just met. He seems shy, he won’t show his whole face and won’t give his number. Do you think he’ll open up more with time?
Sure, he might open up with time. But it's difficult to gauge what amount of time he will need. That would partially depend on how comfortable he is right now with recognizing his own sexuality.If both of you are very new to this, it night be as close to 'perfect' a scenario as you will find. You don't want to be the squeaky clean nube in a relationship with a very experienced guy. (Well, maybe you do.) But gays tend to like that scenario - being the first, being able to 'turn' someone. Anyway, I am not the moral police (and I support progressive views which don't hurt anyone and will give people a better chance at feeling like their authentic, honest self.) So if you decide to proceed with this, it might work out well. Just be cautious, prudent, be kind and sensitive to each other, and just acknowledge that you are in exploration mode here. You don't know exactly how it will go, but you'll do your best to be fair and sensitive to his needs, as much as your own. Men tend to be a bit more direct in their communication style. That doesn't always mean that they have clarity in how they feel (quite often they understand the emotional world less than females do), but you can promise to keep each other relatively (as necessary) informed about where both your heads are at.
We’ve been exchanging pics. Just met him though
I assume the reason you just shared this information with me is to let me know it's scenario nr. 2.
Not sure what you mean by another scenario.
Did you even read my post? I clearly stated two scenarios: 1) It's a friendship, 2) there's sexual desire between you two that you will supress - which would be psychological self-torture.You're apparently in scenario nr. 2.
Best answer so far

Actually I enacted the non-physical relationship part? I’m simply settling for half.
I don't think you can have a relationship without getting sexual at one point, unless you BOTH are beiologically asexual so it's impossible for sexual feelings to happen between you bothI suggest you stay as close friends
That might be for the best. I’m waiting to see what he says.
