Why Does my Ex boyfriend somtimes text me?

Me and my exboyfriend have been split up a month now.At first he would not communicate with me.So now evry couple of days I get a text from him.It's a little text message joke or a short" hey what's up" thing.He 's the one who broke up and said he didn't want a jealous g-friend.I am polite and respond to his texts.Somtimes he does not reply back.So I sent him a text recently and said"If you have a new g-friend I don't think we should talk anymore."He quickly replied and said"I don't have a g-friend but that's ok."Why was he so quick to reply back?I am confused and don't understand why he's doing this.If he dumped me then why does he want anything to do with me?Can you please help?

  • It's because he wants to know that he can still have you if he wants. Yes, he dumped you, but he wants to know that he could bring you back. Just don't reply to his texts, he'll get the hint.

  • Because he is an idiot. I think he is texting you JUST to see if you respond... EGO. He probably wants some lovin' too. Men like that are morons, start ignoring him.

  • Sounds like he's playing games. Next time he text don't respond, get rid of him.

  • I agree with SarahLeeMorgan. Don't reply anymore....He's trying to string you along and only you can make him successful or unsuccessful.

  • He misses you. He wants you to want him, even though he doesn't want a "jealous girlfriend". So, since you're cool right now, he is probably wondering "why isn't she all bummed that i dumped her". It enflates men's ego's to know someone is heartbroken over them. He is playing games. He probably wants to get laid too. He's definitely trying to string you along.

  • I agree with all the PPs. He's feeling you out to see how you're doing without him, to see if you want him back. Either it's to stroke his ego or to get a hookup. Either way, it's not worth your time.

  • Maybe he to be friends with you. Just because you break up with someone doesn't mean that you have to hate each other

  • Ignore it, unless you want to get back with him...
