You can't MAKE someone open up. Y're right that, from he sound of it, he would benefi from therap, but he wuld resist the idea. Men generally are muc less comfortable talking abou their emotions, and he, apparently for good rason, could be more so than most. He may not in fact be able to mainain a relatioship with you, but only time and patience will tell. He may well believe that people leave you if you trust or love them. Gentle and tactful atmpts to alk about his issue may gradually get somewhere.
