Why would my ex randomly text an apology but still not want to talk to me? About 3 weeks ago me & my boyfriend of a little over a year broke up. We had a bad argument resulting in him saying that I wouldn't hear from him again. I tried to apologize & make up, he wasn't having it so I let go, stopped contacting him. He texted me once after Valentine's Day asking how my v-day was. When I responded, he didn't reply. The other night, he randomly texted me "I'm sorry". I asked "For what?", he said "that things went bad". He still doesn't want to engage in a conversation with me though. I've asked him if he's still mad. He said no, but ignoring me makes it seem like he is!! He said he wasn't going to speak to me anymore, so why apologize now? What would prompt this? If nothing has changed, what good is "sorry"? Why bother? Could he finally be coming around? Think he'll ever text me again?
