Is your lover hopeless when it comes to expressing his feelings? There are ways of persuading your man to open up ... though some signs are certainly trickier than others.
Easy signs first: The two best in touch with their feminine side are Cancer and Libra. Each is not only better adapted to understanding what you need in quiet moments, but will happily watch chick flicks with you! They really do empathize with your feelings and will say so. Sharing and caring is their thing.
Scorpio adores intense heart-to-hearts, so they may prod you to go deeper than you'd like at times. Still, in this way they're very much the exception among all Sun signs.
Being the sign of the burning heart, Leo men are good at expressing themselves -- at least early on in a relationship. That said, he'll talk about what he thinks and feels, rather than really grasping what the two of you need to share. Keep tapping into his warm center to ensure that he keeps his focus on your relationship.

Early on in courtship, Pisces tends to be very poetic about his feelings, and even softly seductive. But as time wears on, he'll disappear into evasiveness when it comes to being pinned down. Try learning a few of his favorite love songs so you can quote one to him if you feel it fits his present state of heart -- if you do, you might just get a glimmer from him.
Virgo, Taurus and Capricorn may not quite grasp the point of deeply felt moments, as they're either being practical or wishing to indulge. The way to these signs' hearts is through their body; even workaholic Virgo and Capricorn can be slowed down if sufficiently tempted. Whether you'll ever persuade them to come clean about their feelings -- especially a private Taurus -- is another matter entirely.
Gemini, Sagittarius and Aries can certainly talk about everything under the Sun -- except their innermost yearnings and vulnerabilities. They're interested in people and psychology, so if you can lure them into intimate conversation, you might just persuade them to reveal their true feelings.
And if you're dating an Aquarius, you didn't start doing so because he's an emotional creature! Quite the opposite, in fact: You adore his detachment, inquiring mind and ability to keep a clear head. Still, he's probably the most difficult sign to get to know when it comes to his emotions, so you'll have to kick off the conversation with the theory of love, then be cleverly persistent about moving the topic over to him.
