We broke up a couple days ago. He says he needs his space, and I understand. I don't know how to move on and stop letting my emotions get the best of me and contact him. I'm constantly thinking about what he might be doing, or even worse, who. I know I have no control over this and it is just torturing myself.
He seems to try to text me when I don't talk to him for a while or respond. But what he says just seems like he's making his presence known still. If he needs his space, why is he talking to me? It feels like he's just trying to see if I'm still here so that it makes it easier for him to move on.
I told him last night that I'm going to begin moving on from him. He immediately responded to my previous texts saying I needed to talk. What was this all about? Does he not want me to move on? I almost want to catch him before he does.
If I completely stop all contact after saying I'm moving on, what will he think? Will he try to contact me?

I don't really know if you want him back or anything... but here's my two cents.
He's not being congruent. He's asking you for space, but then continues to contact you when you don't.
The reason for this is that he's having a hard time letting go, that much is sure. He's holding on to you till he meets a new girl.
Ex partners usually act like this when the break up is still raw, which it is.
I would tell him that you, personally, need space from him and could he please refrain from contacting you.
If he's mature and considerate, he will. If he's immature and irresponsible, he won't.
If he doesn't you need to be more stern, so call him up and tell him.0
