How do I find out how someone feels when he is a very closed person?

I have a very close friend of the opposite gender. We have been friends for a while now but about 4 months ago I suddenly realized that have feelings for him as more than friends. I don't want to make the first move because I believe that it is his job as the man in the relationship so I have been waiting for him to do so. Unfortunately he left the country about 3 months ago and now lives on the other side of the world. We have continued our friendship long distance and it seemed to be going well. About a month ago he changed the way he acts towards me and I am unsure as to why. Whether it's because he had feelings for me before and now would just like to be friends or vice versa, I don't know. My brother has told me that I need to let go and move on, but I feel as though I can't let go of something that never happened. At this point I feel as though I need to know how he feels, even if he doesn't have romantic feelings for me, I think it would be better to know. The problem is that he is a very closed person and doesn't talk about emotions or feelings very openly, what should I do?
