I haven't posted in a while.
He doesn't like his options. I say tough s--t. What does he want option 3 to be? Allow me to stay here and pretend to be a good family man in everyones eyes whilst having a girlfriend on the side? Ask him what he thinks his options shoild be. And why didn't he (don't they) mention anything about being so unhappy until AFTER they get somehow involved with someone else? He's being a coward and needs to man up and make a decision. I say give him till the end of the month to make a decision, and if he doesn't tell him YOU will make it for him.
He doesn't like his choices because he would have to make one.
It's an old P/A trick.
We only miss what could have been. I know I don't miss what it really was.
I should add that I have had the conversation several times with him about what his choices are.
Oh, many of us recall quite clearly - unfortunately - the moment we understood he's missing her and is acting out in ways that show it.
