I wasn't sure what to make of this. He didn't like when I pursued him, but now he didn't seem to like that I wasn't. I grabbed the book -( Amy Waterman's Save My Marriage Today) to see if I was doing something wrong, but according to it I was sort of on the right track, although my method and my tone were not as lighthearted, matter of fact, or open as the book said I should be. I remembered the road map and figured I should maybe take a look at exactly what I should be doing. I read it again several times and put the plan in the back of my mind. I also got my hands on another book called "The Magic Of Making Up," which is all about coming up with make up strategies when your partner is resistant or the break up has already happened. It sort of teaches you how to turn the tables, get on "their side" as part of strategy and even the playing field. I was stunned to see that my trip / indifference was actually right on. It was dumb luck, but according to the author, I was right on track and this is what would be called my "opening move."
But, (probably incorrectly) I decided that I was tired of playing games and told myself I'd put this whole thing off til after the visit with my friends. I'd decide then what I wanted to do. I just couldn't deal with it earlier than that. Next up, Part Four (The Pursuer Becomes Pursued) Here. (Affiliate Disclosure)
