If he wanted me back, would he just say it?

Anonymous
I recently got back in touch with a guy I dated about two years ago - things ended when he decided he wanted to date another girl instead. They've long since broken up. We bumped into each other at the airport and talked before our flights, and a few days later he sent me a message saying he was sorry if he'd hurt me and that he hopes we can be "friends" now. He asked me to get coffee a couple days after, and we talked for over 6 hours about life, politics, philosophy, mutual friends. He was flirty at times, and there were several instances where I'd catch him staring at me while I was sipping my drink, before quickly looking away. So I don't think his intentions are just "friendly." I can't figure out what they are exactly though - he generally doesn't have much of a filter, and is pretty confident (even egotistical) so if he truly wanted me back he would have said it plainly by now? Does the lack of directness imply he just wants sex?
If he wanted me back, would he just say it?
