He prefers not to show others who he is under the surface.

12 Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Libras base their lives on four things: balance, justice, equanimity, and stability. They only want to be surrounded by harmony and beauty.

Thanks to their ruling planet Venus, Libras are understanding, caring, but also quiet and shy, unless someone close to them can persuade them to come out of their shell.

8 Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Sagittarius people are known as the philosopher of the astrological world. Like their cousin the Scorpio, a Sagittarius has the amazing ability to focus their attention on something without wavering. They tire easily, however, and have to learn how to channel their energies instead of allowing themselves to be pulled in all different directions.
According to whats-your-sign.com, Sagittarius people are not very patient people and require quick results. Unlike most who get angry when they fail, Sagittarius people are quick to make big comebacks and try again, even when there are incredible odds stacked against them.
They make loyal friends and lovers who will be there and do anything for the ones closest to them, but they refuse to be tied down and do not handle commitment very well at all.
7 Why A Sagittarius Might Not Love Her
A Sagittarius man views love as a constraint to his independence.
If a woman wants them to feel how she feels for him, she needs to prove to him that loving her doesn’t mean he will lose control or become stifled in the relationship.
She must let him know that if he wants to go out alone, he can, if he wants to go traveling, he can, just that he will have a traveling buddy to join him if he wants.
It is just convincing him to commit that is the hard part. Sagittarius doesn't like commitment.
6 Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

They are not receptive to criticism and tend to follow a day-by-day plan to make sure they accomplish all their goals and tasks. They rarely share their problems with anyone, which is why they are susceptible to feelings of gloom caused by a bottling of their emotions.
5 Why A Capricorn Might Not Love Her
If a Capricorn’s girlfriend is having doubts about their relationship, she is probably right.
Capricorns love to keep busy with different projects, but one reason he may be doing it more often than usual is that he is trying to avoid his feelings.
Capricorns do not like to admit to their feelings because they find them scary.
If he learns to stop running from his feelings and to own up to them, he may be able to pursue a relationship with her.
4 Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Those born under the Aquarius sign are known to live a simple, quiet and nonspontaneous lifestyle. They have an amazing ability to accomplish their goals in peace with non-conventional methods that are surprisingly effective.
According to whats-your-sign.com, Aquariuses are known to be loyal, honest, and highly intelligent people. They can make friends very easily, but if they do not keep themselves in check, they may fall into a period of laziness. They are aware of this flaw, which is why they try their best to keep themselves motivated and constantly busy.
3 Why An Aquarius Might Not Love Her
Aquariuses are known to be loners, and because they have been solitary for so long, they have convinced themselves that they will remain like this.
According to yourtango.com, if his girlfriend is having trouble getting him to open up to her, its because he is in an emotional rut and scared of getting hurt.
His emotions make him uncomfortable and can sometimes scare him. He doesn’t know how to manage them or how to express them to other people.
Showing him how to love will eventually make him come around to the idea of not being alone.
2 Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Pisces are very intelligent people, but those around them would never know it because they tend to keep a low profile.
According to whats-your-sign.com, those born under the Pisces sign are honest, trustworthy, and unselfish people who would rather live a life of quiet dispositions than be out and about in large social settings. They tend to be overcautious in their home and work life and can be gullible.
Because of all these qualities, they tend to get taken advantage of, which is sad because they really are such a gentle and generous bunch.
1 Why A Pisces Might Not Love Her
Pisces are grounded in family. They truly love and care for their close family and friends, which is why he may not show the affection his partner wants as much as he should.
Pisces love their family and friends so much that it makes them afraid to bring anyone else into the mix.
