Why does ex want to remain in contact?

I broke up with my ex boyfriend almost half a year ago. He constantly contacted me after the breakup and we met each other once. However, at certain point I realized that we cannot get back together and it is difficult for me to move on if he is still contacting me. So I deleted him on all social media for good. Last week, he added me and said he still want to remain in contact with him.
Although I moved on already, I don't understand why would he want to keep in touch even though I cut him out of my life.
