Why would a guy not want his ex to block him and tell me he was gonna text but didn't?

he broke up with me for now to focus on college and can't do long distance because we’ve tried before. but he says that he still wants to be in my life and he still want me to stay in his, he said that he still wants to be with me more than friends, that he doesn't want to lose me and begged me to not block him on any social media. i reached out a few days later asking how he was settling in so far and at the end of the convo he asked me if i txted just to check in, if i needed anything, and that he was gonna text me but thought he should give me space.
