Tonight I was in the local supermarket shopping. He works as a manager there. I saw him stacking some shelves from the corner of my eye and walked to the aisle I needed.
Now, I thought perhaps he'd want to avoid me after last time we spoke. But he stood by the exit of the shop and began sorting things there just as I was checking out.
As usual, he asked how I was and what I'd been up to. So I told him. Part of it involved taking the football team that I coach away to a tournament (a kids team) and I'd jokingly said about this creepy manager who had approached the kids and ask where we were from.
Low and behold, I got a Facebook request from this guy shortly after I got home that night. I hadn't even looked his way and am actually pretty scared regarding how he found out my name.
Anyway, I was laughing about it. And my ex turned from what he was doing to face me and said 'maybe he was a nice guy, you could have gave him a chance'
I just thought: 'what?' Anyway. I replied just saying I wasn't interested in any men and that I didn't need a guy to be happy (which is true).
Just at that, he got up and said he has to go and finish his work inside the shop. He'd only just began stocking the exit part of the shop :S and usually we talk for a little longer. Perhaps he genuinely had other work to do, but I just found it odd how it seems he went out his way to talk to me anyway.
For the record, he sounded kinda down in the dumps/not very upbeat to begin with... so yeah...
- He genuinely wants you to move on.
- He was testing the water to see you reaction.
- He doesn't care.
- He may still care... a little.

I think he may have thought you were telling him about the coach to show him other guys are interested but your still single & happy on your own - he's may have been thinking you were hinting to get back with him or that after the argument you were having a dig who knows maybe he does still like you a little
but the coach is obviously very interested in you and why give up on a new opportunity who has the same interest as you for something that you likely know the outcome of as your relationship with him didn't last
