How can I get my boyfriend to be more emotionally intimate with me without prying or being annoying?

He goes out of his way physically and financially just to make me happy. He puts up with me when I am super stressed. I like to think that I do the same for him. But when it comes down to our personal lives, he can be distant and a bit socially awkward about some personal topics. It is not like he even had a bad childhood, or has any reason to hate the world. He is a happy, intelligent person with a lot of opinions on objective stuff. We have been dating for months and I thought we were at the point where we could be more emotionally intimate. It matters to me because it is reassuring, and because it is one way of knowing if this person is really worth spending a good amount of my life with. I love spending time with him, but this issue has been a burden on me and I feel like I can not do much about it.
