So my ex (who I also work in the same building with but in different departments) ended things back in October. She claimed she wanted space and was confused about her feelings for me.
I have respected her wishes since the break up and have not called or texted her. I went as far as removing her from my social media feeds as well (didn't want her to think I was keeping tabs or stalking).
Since the breakup she still follows me on social media (IG and Snapchat). She views my snap stories and likes the majority of my photos I post on IG.
She has reached out to me 3 separate occasions. The first was a "check-in" text 2 weeks following the break up and she dropped the let's be friends line. I kept things brief and told her I was okay with her decision to end it and that I would continue giving her the space she asked for. I didn't answer the let's be friends thing but she knew my stance from the night we broke up about how that wouldn't happen.
The second was a reachout through a work channel (skype) about joining some co-workers to do a volunteer day/grab drinks after. I politely declined.
The third and most recent happened last Saturday night. She sent me a text of a pic of us. I replied back (only because since the break up she's been civil and respectful) with a joke since the pic was a goofy one of us. She then replied back with a heart emoji. Instead of getting caught in her web I bluntly asked if she had something she wanted to say to me. Instead she backed off saying "oh no sorry I was just going through photos and deleting some to make space in my phone."
So my question is, I have respected her wishes in terms of her space (not initiating anything outside of saying hi if I see her in the halls at work), yet she is constantly reaching out or keeping tabs on what I am doing.
Why is she doing this? Interested to hear any insight/feedback on this.

Yeah they dump us, want us gone but can't keep their beaks out our buisness lol
Go out and have fun, lots of it give her something to talk about... basically she's competing against u, to see if you'll get better than her.. all it is.. actions of an insecure child.. just ignore her or get another job she wanted u gone.. go don't ever look back and let her creep1
