Do they actually connect the dots between their behavior and the response that they get? I never actually had a name for this behaviour hot and cold. And just as you fear you might get hurt, your ex has fears too. When I got closer to the truth, and his real character, he would make a horrendous exit and disappear. After being played once in the past by a woman I was crazy about, any kind of behaviour like this is just a massive turn off for me.
The authors describe my ex and his behaviour and my own! This other man doesn't know he's coming even though he knows of him and I don't know whether to tell him or how to tell him. That has helped me in the past. These guys are so predictable. I am much stronger and much smarter now. In my experience, couples that get back together and stay together for good do so because they both have excellent reasons to want to get back into the relationship.

Grace, thank you for your reply. A year later, I started dating someone else and as soon as he started behaving ambivalently, I recognized this, red flag, I told him, I was going to date other people too.
