Its been a few weeks since I broke it off with my AP (for the 3rd time). Nothing has changed.On Wednesday he was drunk, called and professed his love for me "I love you, I love you, I love you...I want to scream it from the rooftop!" He went on to say how he is his best with me. He sits home in one room and his W in another and wishes he could be with me. This went on for about 40 minutes. Thursday he is sober and calls around 11 Pm, which is late for him. I didn't notice and he texted and continued to call. I finally realized I got a call and answered. He was upset. I reassured him that I just didn't hear the phone. He was crying. Upset we couldn't be together and said I realize I can't give you anything. He wanted to get together the next day. I couldn't so we had lunch on Saturday. It was Ok

I have no idea when I will see him again outside work. He is going on vacation with his W in a couple weeks. He is still not making any movement to leaving his W, still making future plans with her.

One good thing is that I am getting tired of this and my feelings have gone from thinking we have a spiritual soul mate connection...that just can't be helped to feeling that I want and deserve much more than a bunch of words and 2 X a month intimacy. My feelings are waning...this makes me somewhat relieved but very sad too.

How did the 2 of you interact at lunch and how did you feel towards him?  I wonder if your feelings are really waning or if you're just protecting yourself from knowing he's having such a hard time.  I'm on a month today since seeing xAP, and reading this hit home and makes me so sad.  My heart goes out to you.  ((hugs))

"My feelings are waning...this makes me somewhat relieved but very sad too."

Sounds like you're getting tired of the shenanigans, which is totally understandable. I don't know why he felt inclined to profess his feelings while he's drunk - why can't he do this sober? If I could even take back half the things I said in a liquored state of mind... Anywho, it appears as if he's wrangling with some issues at home and abroad and it's taking a toll on both of you. I can see how your feelings would wane. Maybe it is a bit of a blessing to be able to move on.
