    OP...Not to sound harsh, but obviously the only person you're fooling is yourself. You're dancing on thin ice, and if you seriously want this to end you'll find a way, if not, you'll find an excuse.

    Of course, I'm aware that this is not something you're in favor of hearing.

    Ive been almost there (all the same, but not with an ex).
    The attention is awesome, but you are damaging your marriage.
    Wanting to be friends isnt fine.. you still have some feelings there, and so does he. It has to be a clean break.
    Does your husband know? How would he feel if he found out?
    DO NOT text him anymore, unless you are choosing to end your marriage.

    After you showed your husband all of the messages between you and your ex, what did the two of you (you and your husband) decide to do?

    Did you agree to delete all of your ex's messages, your ex's number from your phone and block it, and remove him as a "connection" on LinkedIn? And if you agreed, did you do so?

    Jay, How would you feel if the roles were reversed with your husband?

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks again for your advice. Yes, my husband does know. He's seen all the messages, I don't keep anything from him. He knows my past with this guy. In fact, the two of them used to be friends.

    I told my ex I was unhappy with the way he was texting me and if he wanted to stay friends that's fine but not to treat me any differently to any other friend, and vice-versa. Usually we just send funny stuff we find online (memes, etc). Anyways, he went quiet with me for a while so I said "Look, we clearly can't just be friends and it's time for me to break contact. All the best". He immediately replied, saying things are tough for him right now, mentioned something about his car breaking down (?!) then said things with me are "too intense"?

    I've no idea what he's talking about. He wouldn't elaborate, and said he'd talk to me another time.

    Some things don't change.

    He's trying to get you to chase him.
