You have to decide what you want and what he wants. Your decision has to be based on where this relationship is. The only way to figure that out is by allowing him to expand on what he wants at this point. If you are just friends you have closure. The closure is that your relationship and communication is on a limited basis. You both have to be clear on what you want. You don't need to make excuses to carry out what you want. Be clear and act accordingly. Invest your time and he should invest his in the relationships that are primary your marriages. He of course has more than that. It would be in your best interest to end it and let his 3 women deal with his behavior. You are doing yourself no favors by continuing this. You are only 1 of 4 and if you remember that you will have closure
If this has been helpful press accept
I would absolutely leave the communication alone. It is hard to let go but if letting go is the right decision then that is what you have to do. He isn't invested. If he was he would not have 3 other relationships. You can't trust him. He may be telling them the same thing. You deserve a healthy relationship with someone who is honest.
Turning in tonight. Hope you feel better or I will be back tomorrow
