You probably can't really. If you ask him directly or try to force it out of him he'll feel trapped or forced and become stubborn. And trying something manipulative to force it is even worse of an idea.

Just become more aware of things he's doing for you or the fact that he's around you and content to be with you rather than elsewhere as signs of how he feels even if he can't/won't verbalize them.
My guy is great at one word answers that I can take one way or the other. Also he is good at misdirection, telling me only part of what he thinks or feels so that I am still left wondering. True, you have to read between the lines sometimes and see what he doesn't say because it is what he works so hard not to show that answers what you want to know.
My guy goes on offensive when he is hurt and feeling defensive. He shows he loves me by doing practical things like the other night he brought me 3 bags of rock salt for my driveway, lol. It's not flowers and it works for me cos flowers are not practical.

My Taurus has said that he always says what is on his mind. But he is always trying to find a way not to say what you want to hear if he feels like he is not ready or doesn't want to talk about it. Hit a nerve and he will insult you and be cold because he doesn't want you to dig deeper. That doesn't mean back down. It means hold him accountable for what he says and does and he will show you respect and in time when he is feeling more secure, he will show his feelings freely. He needs time to make up his mind that he is doing a smart thing by loving you. That you fit into his life. That you appreciate him and that you are good together. He is very passionate so don't underestimate that in any capacity but also realize there might be extremes because of that. Where you might show your feelings more easily he has learned to cover them up with clever conversation and misdirection and he will either talk circles around you or shut down. He likes someone to debate with and he learns how to be more confident when he has a partner who can work with him to resolve their issues. He can be slow to make decisions involving emotions and he can get lost in emotion. He is not as secure in himself as he seems to be although he is clearly an alpha male. You can sway him with emotion but he doesn't want you to know that. Find a fault with his reasoning and throw in some emotion and he will bend. Be someone he can depend on and trust and who gives without asking for anything in return. He won't respect a pushover so be fair to you and to him and the truth will come.

I had a taurus FWB once. He never once spoke about his feelings. He gave nothing away by what he said, but it was kind of obvious in his actions. We were both in love with eachother, I quite openly expressed it, only once to him though, which his reply was to go deep red and say "thankyou" haha. Eventually I gave up and moved on. Every now and then he gets back in contact but one of us is always in a relationship. I still have a lot of love for the guy but am no longer in love with him. I just never understood why he never said how he felt, yet he did confide in his bestfriend who told me. The greatest romance that never happened! lol.

But back to the original point, I have no idea how you get them to tell you, but I am keen to know, for old times sake (or for when he makes his annual appearance )

When (and if) he's ready, just like any sign, he'll tell you how he feels.

I've been seeing a Taurus male for the last couple of weeks and he's very forthcoming with his feelings. in fact, he asks me what mine are - he's very emotional and holds nothing back as far as i can tell.

I didn't ask him, i let him reveal, which is exactly what he did one day.He's VERY open about feelings, both in words and in action.

Just let him do it when he's ready. May tale a while but he'll appreciate you not asking him if he's not ready to talk.
