Don't play headgames. Do back away and let him pursue you. You want him to prove his love, not just offer you crumbs, especially if you're having to do a 180 on him and if you're prone to being vocal and generous with your expressions of love.
Thanks for the advice. Before my husband and I even were talking about reconsliing and even really on talking terms at all. I was sprucing myself up for him. I had pictures of myself on FB, not cheap or anything, but he admitted he looked at those. I know of one comment on my page that drove him crazy about a belly button ring I was thinking of getting and another guy that made obscene comments(that is not not on a friend list anymore) My H asked this weekend if I was still planning to get my navel pierced. Hes throwing hints out about it being healed by spring/summer for a cruise
I have been practicing the approach of less contact with him, making him contact me. So far its working. I did not tell him good morning this morning thgouh text until he sent me a text that said "Btw, Morning"
He was home all day yesterday and text me all day, his choice.
I must admit, that it is very hard for me to not tell him I miss and I love him, but I feel that I'm doing it.
He brought up on saturday that he would like to spend the night with me this coming weekend.
