Separated and it's Valentine's Day

My husband and I have been separated since this past June. I am very confused by him. At Christmas he bought me gifts and spent the holiday with me and the kids. He doesn't want to move back home, he says he doesn't know if he loves me, but yet he calls me pretty much every day. Sometimes it's talks about nothing and sometimes it's some of the worst arguements. Valentine's Day is just about here. I have no intention of getting him anything. Is that right thing to do? What do I do if he shows up with something for me like he did at Christmas?

I'm sorry you're dealing with this. It does sound like he's sending mixed signals. I was going to suggest our Surviving Divorce & Separation board but see you've already found it.

Wishing you all the best!
