If I'm rubbing someone's back while hugging it's because I'm trying to calm them or comfort them.
No how could that possibly mean anything? I hug like that too and it doesn't mean anything at all.
Think it means he cares about you, meaning he has sympathy or I don't know empathy, Good luck, Lols

He must still have some feelings for you, because if I didn't want my ex anymore I certainly would not give him a hug, nor would I give him a tight hug AND rub his back. I say he still does care for you, maybe misses your touch and was trying to get some closeness to you.
