I don't know if it will help anyone, but one anti-trigger mechanism that I use for Sundays is to make them about me now and about the things I don't have to do, or like to do.
Plans with friends or family who are around or do errands/shopping -keeping busy on trigger days helps. Making new memories on trigger days helps. Then, I have the memory of the present-day Sundays or trigger days to carry with me rather than the past.
This type of day is about "living in the now", as Wayne and Garth say and making new patterns or routines eventually wears on the triggers.
ETA that if it were me and X made cow eyes at me I would be very, very leery, because it could also be an act, I'm sorry to say. But if you still want your M, it seems like you're going to have to find a way to put yourself on the line-again-or determine your threshold for your deal breakers.
What I was always told was, "it's the actions". If he's just making cow eyes at you, it could be curiosity or some other thing, but please be careful of your heart.
