Relationship Expert Q&A's
Name: DY

Question:
Dear Steven,
my Ex-cp and I were about to get back together after a week of time-out (oops I know, you'd say bad idea!!) A lil wary, I gave him MWCL to read. 2 days later, he's gone from sweet to giving me the funny aloof and silent treatment again.

I admit it hurts, but i'm not that surprised anymore. I just wanna know what u think his reaction means. Does he realize he's CP hence guilty, or is he just angry at me for this "accusation"? Any chance he'd go seek help on his own?

Answer:
You were trying to change him by giving him MWCL. Bad idea. He needs a therapist, not a book. Now he's angry and you're left feeling bad. His reaction is unimportant. He has a problem and if he doesn't do something about it you have no reason to feel the least bit hopeful. Sorry.
