Is it really possible to stay friends with this kind of ex?

It was a 3 year relationship. I thought it was secure but in the end for reasons I won't go into I ended it.
We struggled to stay not talking, added each other back on social media.
We both aren't sure what we really want although the connection is still very strong.
I can't get back with him, but I also can't not talk to him because we are both close.
I still check up on his Instagram likes etc and I'm worried he's gonna find someone else. I don't know why I care about likes but on girls pictures I still wanna know what's going on.
Can I really be friends because I'm stuck in the middle of wanting to fall back into his arms and wanting to be free but not managing to let go.
