What are some reasons an ex would reach out to you? My ex broke up with me last summer and we had contact for a while but I broke it off because I wanted to move on - it hurt too much. But now he messaged me on Facebook, showing me a video of him playing football, where he got a little hurt? I responded with a short but nice comment and we haven’t talked more, what do you guys think is the reason he reached out? Have you reached out to an ex, if so why?
