Why did my cheating ex reach out to me?

I found out a month ago my boyfriend of 1.5 years was cheating on me. It was really bad, he blocked me for 2 weeks. Then he sent an apology through text, i was angry at him still. We met up for me to get closure. We talked things out. But he still left some things unanswered to me. So, i was still furious. Some mean things were said to him on my end. The last thing he said to me was “you are a toxic and hateful person. I don’t need you in my life. Good riddance”. Then he blocked me everywhere again. Then he unblocked me later that night.

Now a few days later, i haven’t reached out to him. He texts me “hello”. Why is he playing these games?
