Very rare to be anything other than sex0
Sex. That's the only reason a guy stays in contact with an ex.0
He didn't broke up with you. You are in the middle of a game.0
I need to know too, my ex keeps seeing my stories. I find it annoying but I can't stop her like0
I can't imagine.0
Maybe to get back again.
I think he might still be conflicted about his feelings, or maybe he just wants to be friends? Maybe he's hoping to have a, how should i put it? A physical relationship with you?
You could just outright ask him, he might give you a straight answer..0
I rebuke this0
They probably thought they didn't like you but realise that they do or they just like you as a friend and nothing more and just want to be friends0

1) they're genuinely not over you (this is rare, but it depends entirely upon how you broke up).
2) they want to remain friends with you (slightly more common).
3) they want to use you for their own physical or emotional pleasure (again, depends on the dynamics of the relationship you shared together) - maybe they want you around for when they begin to feel lonely, maybe they know they can use you to boost their own self-esteem. (This can be common after a break up).
4) they are regretting their decision to break up with you or are having second thoughts (again, this is common... but the guy will make it clear soon that he's regretting it. If he doesn't show signs of regret then you can disregard this point.1
I'll be honest, I dumped a man back in November because he was a crappy dad and even worse partner. He was pawning his daughter off on me after having the grandmother raising his child for the last eight years. The child shits her pants and has absolutely no structure/ responsibilities/expectations etc. My five year old is better behaved, more responsible, etc. I tried staying in contact with him for his daughter's sake. He was in a custody battle triangle at the time. She had already lost her mom to heroin and her grandfather beats the grandmother infront of her and the child is drawing photos in her diary of naked men and women and talking about loving sex. He was too stupid to see why I was still trying to be there for the child and thought I was trying to use him like his other exes. (I'm a single mom who didn't go after child support, but I don't ask anyone for anything. I provide for me and mine!)0
I'm actually really good friends with my ex (lol just one NOT all)... we were friends before and we had a good thing for a while but we broke up and although it was awkward for a bit we're still good friends... maybe he wants to be friends? Was it a bad break up?1
late night booty calls lol "u up?"0
A child? An sti?0
he whats you as a possible rebound. he's not over you. but i wouldn't get my hopes up for it being anything good0
We have a cellphone contact together. We have a car together... we have an apartment in both of our names but i dont live there.0
To keep up with your life.0
As a back up plan0
I think the only reason an ex would try to stay in contact is because he or she still cares.2
To see how you’re doing without them. It’s pathetic honestly0
