He has a real problem.

You need to get the to bottom of it. Tell him that your relationship is VERY abnormal and you want it to change. Set a deadline for improvement. You are going to have to take the initiative.

Tell him you are taking the initiative and then you will have to start off holding hands with him. When you hold hands tell him you are going to do it and then do it. After a few minutes ask him if it is ok with him. Keep doing it until he feels comfortable with it. If he never gets comfortable you are going to have to dump him or go on living with no affection from him.

If holding hands goes well, then move on the kissing and lead him through the stages of love making. Who knows, once he gets the hang of it he may start initiating things himself.
