Flat out your communication with him sucks and you may need to repeat it to him several times so he understands. In terms of not trusting him thats on you; for instance, my ex made up all these things in her head that i was the absolutely worst person in the world emotionally abusive person, guess what... I'm the kind of person who likes silence and I jumped over walls and hurdles to make her comfortable, crack jokes and show love, be social. It was exhausting, and when i started to get back to who i was in the relationship, you know the comfortable silent type she took offense. Not saying your wrong but perhaps change your view and ask him.. say "we need to communicate more"

He's you ex for a reason so no need to circle back around.
