I agree with the mixed signals, but also agree that it must mean that Carol still wants you there next to her. Give her some time, and hopefully she will come around and talk.
I get weird vibes from my husband still .... Last week, I was talking to him and told him if he'd just give me a chance, it would work out .. his response " I dont want a relationship .. I want to be on my own.... Maybe in 2 years" Oh, and my response then was, "In 2 years it may be a little too late"
Everyone I have talked to, has told me he sounds confused. Yet tonight he calls .. he calls out of the blue for silly little reasons ... I asked if he gets lonely by himself and he said sometimes. When I say goodbye, he sounds down. But guess what .... I dont.
Anyways, Kev, I really hope it works out between you and your wife. All of the posts I have read, it seems like your marriage is so solid. Dont give up without a fight, though ... And, counseling would be a great idea, imo. If you want to chat, feel free to pm me ...
