My ex and I have been broke up for about a week now but we agreed to be friends.. I let him see Laken (our daughter) all the time, too. Well yesterday I let Dustin keep her all day. Whenever I went to pick her up, he was super-nice to me (nicer than usual.) Whenever I was about to get in the car to leave, he gave me a big hug and kiss on the forehead. I still love him and want to be with him (can't help it) so I get all excited whenever he hugs me. I act like it's no big deal though. Does it sound like maybe he'll come back around anytime soon or is he playing with my emotions
I'm still gonna act as if I don't want him to see if he comes back around
It sounds like you both needed some breathing room to not be resentful and angry. It doesn't mean everything will work out, but at the very least you two can be civil and friendly and caring toward each other apart.
It could be that he knows what he's lost and is hoping to win you over again. Or it could be that he's hoping to remain single and possibly get some butt on the side. Or he wants to torture you into thinking he's wonderful in hopes that it will break your heart even more.
I, personally, would keep an eyebrow raised for a little while.
he might be coming around. time apart can sometimes do wonders. my ex husband and i still see each other and hang out. he still gives me hugs and kisses too. it's not that we are trying to work on things...it's just something he does. he says it makes him feel better. i don't know. he's a weirdo haha. but i never get my hopes up. he says he wants to wait until the baby is born to work on things (it's not his baby. no i didn't cheat on him either. i got pregnant after our divorce....and my baby's father doesn't want to really be in her life and is signing over his rights. i know, i'm a complicated mess). but i just suggest for yourself....don't get your hopes up too high. you never know what will happen, good or bad. take some time apart and then sit down, talk, and work on things (if possible.)
Quoting Barfy McVomitron:
my ex used to do the same with me.
he just wanted in my pants. NO LIE.
i dont wana make you think THAT is what HE is doing.. my ex was a complete duche bag.
he also realized what he lost w/ me.. so he would try to suck up to me to get me back. but i didn't cave in for it. i didn't want him back.. and oh lord it felt so good to see him CRY when i told him i didn't want to be friends w/ him b/c he acted that way..
okay that is besides the point lol... but idk. im not sure the reasons for you two breaking up. but i gaurentee if you were to go back now, things would end up the same way they were before... just give it time. if you still want to be with him after time has gone on and he seems to be a better person, then think about it.. but its only been a week.. the break up is still fresh..
