He dumped me but keeps texting..why?

Let me just start by saying, they're not "booty texts." We normally go through this. I'm not a fan of "on again, off again" relationships, but this is how it's always been with him. However, whenever it happens, I'm the one who always thinks it's real. I start getting over things. I'm still sad, but I realize what we had/didn't have.

Our most recent break up was over a week ago. This time, I decided it would be final, however he "broke up with me." I could never bring myself to breakup with him because I always thought we could work on things like communication, etc. (they were small issues like this).

Whenever we breakup it's because of the "fight" not the actual issue. That got annoying! So, I'm the one trying to keep it from starting back up again.

He texted me last Monday apologizing for not telling his family we were broken up (FYI - his sister texted me something about him last week and I had to update her.she likes me better anyway. ha ha.). I didn't respond to his text, because what's the point?

The second text came a few days ago (after I hadn't responded to his first "commentary text,). He asked if I would please let him know if I still had any interest in going to a planned concert with him ( we planned it several weeks ago). I responded with a casual "no" making it look like my work Christmas party had been planned on the same day. I didn't want to be rude, but I know I shouldn't go with him.

My question: Why does he keep texting me? If you obviously couldn't stand someone enough to always dump them whenever an issue came up, then why the F does he care if I go to a concert? Why does he keep sending me random small text messages? My thoughts are that he regrets being such a hot head about stupid issues, but I'm frustrated with being treated like I'm expendable.

What are some guys' thoughts on the issue of texting? Why does he continue to send me something insignificant?I've started NONE of the texting, and only responded once.

This hurts!
