My ex went through a period of ignoring my calls a while back ... turned out the reason was simple. He didn't want to talk to me in front of his girlfriend.
Affaircare, I just loved what you wrote. I never thought of things that way but I did things quite similarly. I mourned him like he had died and I let go. I'm pleasant enough, just like I would be to a store clerk! I cannot control what my ex does and does not do. He is not the best Dad. There are times he simply does not show up when he is supposed to. Like you, i put no faith in what he says and, until he's at the door, our son doesn't even know he's coming. I cannot force him to be a better father .. but I can control what kind of Mom I am .. and thats a damn good one I might add
