I am not all that surprised. It is the hot and cold thing. He initiates, turns me on, and then backs off. Fun stuff. I feel like a sports car that is being revved up while still in park.
I am happy that he is being affectionate and loving. He always has been. We will eventually get to talking on a more in-depth level at some point. Trust is the key to many things. Until it returns to some degree, the doors will stay closed and locked.
