Either kill him OR wear a blindfold for the rest of your days
If you REALLY like the blindfold idea just go all out and blind yourself somehow, OR ask for help with it
Seriously though, time, that's all you can do, wait for time to do it's magic

Oh honey... I feel so much empathy for you :(
I know what you're talking about... When Levi and I dated, he was my everything. And when he broke up with me and went after my best friend, I fell apart. We had a 7 year friends with benefits on/off fling... We both confessed to each other that we were afraid that we would never love another person as much as we loved each other.
No, I don't doubt he is probably doing it strategically--maybe even subconsciously. Because he wants some sort of reaction out of you, to know that you still care. I could be wrong, but it sounds like you went silent for a while... and that might have bothered him to not have gotten a more dramatic reaction. I will be honest though, it sounds like this relationship isn't going to go anywhere. And I am afraid it will be one of those ones you want to go back for...
I don't know how you get over these kind of things... you kind of just do it. Life forces you forward... and you drag your feet along You isolate yourself for a while, let yourself grieve... and then keep moving. It's like a marathon. You might stop for a bit, but you just keep moving towards the finish line.
I feel terrible for you because there is no clean, cut answer as how to get over this quickly or painlessly. All I can say is... it can be done :)
