Back to the original topic...
It may just be a question of degree or how much information you share. Is it really a question of hiding deep feelings, or just not sharing everything. By all means, don't hide things, but if you know he is going to be bothered, keep it simple and direct. If he asks for further details, then share, but if you know he will have issues with more information, limit what you volunteer.

There is no need for a play by play if he isn't ready.
