Go with logic in this case. Your going to spend time playing hard to get when in the end he can say no thanks. He doesn't know what he wants right now and that's reality. Your living in the now. I wouldn't say cut him out for good but just try to forget about those feelings. If later on your single and he is and has his life together then try it. But if you gamble your chances on a maybe you can lose. Who knows maybe while your to busy trying to get with that guy you can mis your chance with an even better one. Good luck

Just because two people Breakup doesn't mean they can't and don't Makeup and that it is Good-bye, my love. And with an "EX" who still Marks an X in his own softie spot, there may come a time down the fine love line, where he tells You... He doesn't know what he wants in life.
This is because with having you IN his Own life, it is confusing to him because on one hand, as a man, he is Missing the Kissing and on the Other, he still is craving his Space without your face.
You need to take it slow with Joe's flow. Nurse and nurture perhaps a relationship of Friendship and Companionship for now, which doesn't Have to Include "Friends with benefits." This as well will throw a bit more fuel to his fizzy fire and may cause some toil and trouble for you both in the end.
Playing a bit like the juiciest apple at the top of the tree, hardest to get and grab can also be a helping hand in your hand basket. But no matter what, it is never a guarantee with thee if you both will go back to the "Way we were" and with the comforts of home, with you in it, it may get Too Cozy for comfort and this to is how it May remain the same.
I realize you may want your cake and eat it 'Two' but in Time, your Mind May have to rule over your heart that could fall apart.
Good luck. xx
