Analysis of Gollum Can't Post

I am a rookie to the Lord of the Rings series, but I am loving them nonetheless. I just finished the Two Towers. I love the progression and maturity of the characters throughout this book. I found some of Gollum's actions strange though. It is obvious that he is gaining the hobbits' trust in order to escape but also true that he is controlled by the ring wholly, that he must submit to the ring and therefore Frodo. Here's where I find confusion...why does Gollum caress Frodo when he is sleeping? Sam catches him and love is implied, but I do not what that says about Gollum's character. Please respond with your opinions!!
