1. Probably holding out some hope of reconciliation.
2. Wants to end on good terms and have you remember him fondly rather than negatively.

Most likely closure. If he wronged you then maybe guilt and compassion. Sometimes, to get attention to get back together. But a lot of people are open when that's the case.0
