No compliments from boyfriend

He seems to be hanging back in someway and I feel like I'm hanging back too. I haven't done that much dating recently so I don't what is normal anymore. He's my first boyfriend in 4 yrs and I have a 5-yr-old son. I'm 33 yrs old and divorced and he's almost 38 (never been married, no kids).
He seems to have dating down to a science, except for the no compliments thing. It makes me feel insecure because I don't know if this is the way he is with other women he has dated in the past or if he just isn't into me. He says things like we've got a good thing going and he's optimistic about the future, but I'm not buying it. I know I have hang-ups about commitment. I'd like to be in love, etc....but I'm such a skeptic.
I tried to find an article about men who aren't verbally affectionate, but I couldn't find any.
