Barely husband and I have been on good terms since we decided to split up. We have been talking constantly and the relationship has definitely improved from when we were together.
You may ask me “Why are you worried?”
I wouldn’t say worried exactly but it seems he’s trying to win me back. He doesn’t say it, except for a couple of weeks ago, when he texted me to ask if I could see us getting back together in the future. Wow.
He’s been picking Raven up from Drama School on Saturdays and I go to his place on Sundays to get her back. He’s been very nice, we have a coffee together and chat for a while so I can have a break before taking the hour long journey back.
He’s pleasant and he looks at me in a way he hasn’t for years. There is tenderness and longing, two things that I never really associated with him. When I arrive and when I leave, he hugs me tight and breathes in my scent.
I don’t want to cut him, because there is nothing ultimately wrong with what he’s doing but I can’t help but feel awkward. My feelings are not there, not like this anyway. I’d like us to be friends. He’s said before he doesn’t think we can be just friends.
As I said: AWKWARD!
