I've been trying to be patient and give him space since he hasn't been all that talkative this week.  So yesterday I didn't talk to him at all.  This morning I got a text in reference to Thursday convo so I decided to not be negative.  I replied back with a positive greeting. So far I haven't received a response for it.  I know a positive greeting is important so I'm trying with all i have to stay positive and not say anything negative that I'm feeling. Right now I realize I'm only 9 days in but it's very hard because I'm not exactly getting the response that I want which I feel like this isn't working and I'm doing it all for nothing.  But I'm going to press forward and trust in God's word and know He is working on my situation because I'm praying for us and learning how to love and keep my feelings in check.
