WS, 5-month EA/PA '09-'10
Take my advice for what it's worth as everyone is different, but remember that...well...everyone is different. My XH was very angry for a very short amount of time. The portion of that anger that was directed *at me* was even less (because we separated almost immediately after D-day, around 2 weeks after).
When XH and I got back together, I remember being shocked at how incredibly different he seemed from other BHs that I read about on SI. I had prepared myself for all sorts of stuff that never ended up happening.
I got some wise advice, including from some BHs, who told me basically to let him be. He is who he is and he is healing/has healed in his own way. It may not be MY way...actually, it certainly isn't. I'm a talker and would love to discuss everything to death. He hates that and would basically rather crawl over broken glass than ever have my affair brought up to him again. But it's his way and he's entitled to it.
I know you're only 6 months out vs. my XH's 4+ years out, but he reported to me that he was this way at 6 months out too. He just wanted it all to go away...one of the reasons for our hasty divorce, that of course he regretted later (hence our current reconciliation). But if your H is anything like mine, your "needing to ask him how he's feeling on a daily basis" might not have the intended effect. My XH goes crazy when I do that to him, even if it's not about the affair. Just something to consider.
