Our expert says:
I can understand that maybe the deceit of assuring you he had ended the relationship, while still maintaining contact, is very upsetting for you. I am struck by how, often, relationships are like addictions, and a person keeps returning to the scene of the crime, as it were, rather like as a kid when you lost a tooth you kept going back and licking the empty socket. But he is surely not altogether stupid --- she cheated him repeatedly and deceived him, he can hardly now expect her to have suddenly become truthful and sincere, surely ?
I don't know how you can deal with this other than by continued, calm, sincre, and strong discussions with him, making i9t clear what you expect from him, and that this includes sincerity and honesty on his side.
