Good Guy, Bad Kisser

[KissingFilter]: I met a guy who is interesting, funny, warm, etc. I like him. Problem? He really just does not know how to kiss. What do I do?

Super great guy, I love hanging out with him. Unfortunately, when he kisses me, he leaves his mouth fairly wide open and COMPLETELY unmoving, except for his tongue, which moves just a TINY bit side-to-side. I've tried to demonstrate how things could be, but I just don't think he's getting it. And, while I really do not have any preconceived notions about the "right" kind of kiss (I've had the pleasure of many different flavors and, yum!) -- this is just not cutting it.
[What's also interesting/puzzling to me is that he's the one, so far, who's initiated the kissing ("I've been wanting to kiss you all night!") -- but I'm having a hard time understanding how this sub-par kissing is enjoyable for him whatsoever...]
I know "talk to him" is the ultimate solution but we're still getting to know one another and I don't want to hurt his feelings or cause him to back off.
