Please advise:

My BF and I are separated at the moment. I’m in CT and he”s gone to Jhb on business. We have been intimately involved now for 5 months. This is the first time that we are apart. I miss him terribly but he’ll be back in a months time. When he sms’d me last night, I had guests and told him I’ll sms him later when they leave.
He wanted to know who visited and I lied by telling him a certain guy was there…(wanted to see if he would get jealous).
He did and was upset with me for having guys around while he’s away. I eventually told him that I lied about this guy being there cos I wanted to see his reaction . I apologised but he has since not
returned any of my sms’s. Do I just leave things and wait till he does?? I know I shouldn’t have tested him…

I have never come across even one single time when attempts to make a loved one jealous, turned out to be a wise idea. Leave him to cool off, after your bad joke went awry. How would you feel if he had "tested" you in the same way ?
