This guy has liked me before and for a while. He bought me a Christmas present, always tries to get me stuff and has told me months ago he had a thing for me but I said I just wanted friendship.
Last night I just had a fight with my parents and I told him about it and he was being really nice and started opening up to me too. He said his best friend just started getting with his ex behind his back and he's been really upset about it
What is this? I don't feel like he's trying to get close to me because he's still interested and wants something to happen or why would he bring up things with his ex, making it obvious he still has feelings for her.
In the end he thanked me and said I made him feel better
- He just likes the support and having someone to talk toVote A
- Its just betrayal by best friend that upsets him & he wants to get close to youVote B
- Other... explain?Vote C

I believe that he's just "testing the water" to see how you'd react to him bring up an ex, since you say he has liked you in the past & probably still does to an extent.
...or he may just want to relate to the way you were feeling about your parents the other night...
In any case, the former is what I believe is running though his mind, trying to make you react.
Be neutral about it and pay it no mind as he probably wants some kind of a reaction out of you, probably to make you jealous and subconsciously... make you want him as he brings up another woman into the picture.
1. - If you do have some feelings for him, call him out on it and ask why he brings up a former lover in conversation. He'll explain his method of madness per se...
2. - If you don't really care about this and are just wondering why he does such things, don't acknowledge it at all, he'll soon drop this ex subject with you if he is trying to make you jealous about it...
Yet, by considering you are asking a question about this, you are curious on the subject & may be developing some feelings for him as he no longer likes you the way he did, subconsciously.
Think about this guy carefully and ponder if he is worth being curious about...
If he is then go with choice 1. if not, choice 2
