as a fairly textbook 5 who is currently working on getting to know a 5, i can tell you that i personally cannot refuse a question, as long as sufficient care is taken to not silently judge me during said question. the girl i've been hanging out with some recently and i have been very honest with one another via email, perhaps because there is little inflection to feel doubtful about, but in person, we are very quiet. i find myself extremely suspicious of people's motives, and sometimes that effects my reponses somewhat (making them more centrist than candid). in the end, if you MUST know what he thinks, it might not hurt to ask, but if you don't like the answer, and you jump all over him about it, you'd be better off walking away before doing so. be honest with him, but don't expect him to relate to you on your terms. instead, try to realize that peresuming he is indeed into you (and if he is taking time out of his day to send you considerate gestures of various kinds, i'd say he certainly is) he is showing it as best he can without feeling too vulnerable.
