Dating my husband while separated

14 Dec

Even though things seemed good for a moment, I decided that it was too soon for him to move back in the house. A long time ago I heard that relationships are like a pie. Go with your "gut" and be open and honest with him and see where it leads you.

Once it's been decided by one, or both, partners to end the relationship, most typically both of partners start seeking a new relationship. If you really care about your new love interest then you'll apply more reason than emotion to your decision about dating while separated.

By nature I am a fighter and I figure that I will see how this one LAST chance works out. I wanted to make sure that I did my absolute best so that when I look my kids in the eyes, I know that I did all I could do.

BUT I don't want to go through the drama or be played for a fool anymore.

He did say he wants me to read some of what he has written because he can’t process and articulate correctly in person. He did say he feels he is accomplishing something with his therapy to uncover his reasons for lying. I shared some of my little personal growth moments from the last week.

He didn’t start an argument, he wasn’t sulky, and he didn’t act angry, but he also wasn’t engaging or interesting. He asked what I had been doing, told me he was doing “nothing” and shared that he has been writing and working his book. He was full of excuses about looking for a new job even though this one is apparently awful and pays shit (basically his assessment).
