I think this happened because you allowed your social circle to shrink so much that it didn't exit anymore. So once someone became nice and you connected, it's easy to become caught up in it. You need to forget about this guy because he is obviously sending you the message that it's over and because it is obviously wrong. My suggestion is that you do something to start a social circle again. Join a club, take up a class, do some volunteer work, take up some part time job... anything that allows you to interact with some people. Bound to be that you'll find people you can talk to and relate with. Also, when you have you own little thing going on, you'd have more to share with your hubby and more excuses to talk and re-connect with him.
