Why do ex's keep ex's around?

Unlike others, I think ex's can become decent friends.. especially if the relationship didn't have much emotion to it, but why do some ex's keep other ex's around only to talk to them occasionally? They aren't cutting them out of their life for good, being friends or getting back together... They talk every now and then... I don't really understand this... do they keep them around.. just to see how they are next time they decide to talk to them? especially if the breakup hasn't been longer than a month yet.

  • I have no idea... my ex does this even after 8 months... so I dunno, I think they are really lost and poor, I feel sorry for them.

    • How often does he text you?

    • Used to be a lot before, up until 2 months ago he would text me and call me like every 2nd day. Now he does it every week or two.

  • i hear from my ex once every few months...
    he always initiates contact and then cuts off first when we get the conversation rolling...

    it's weird and i don't understand it either.
