The Death Tarot card reveals that he is still too stuck in the past and is not able to break away from it.
He is afraid of losing something important if he commits himself again now. Try to replace his past experiences in love with positive moments.
This way, love can possibly blossom again. However, you should not hold on to him too much and be open to other chances of love.
