Talk to him sincerely

Focus on the present moment with him and show your interest. Try not to keep your mind on the “where are we going” thoughts; instead, keep thinking of new things you can do together to not only boost your relationship but to simply enjoy yourselves at the same time.
Be mindful of how much time you are spending together and don’t allow it to become excessive. This will likely help an Aries man open up to you more.
