Some friends and I were discussing exes and weird behavior on their parts and had noticed that in a few instances, they were kind of all over the place. Nice, then weird, then kind of rude, then nice... Rinse and repeat.
Why bother to keep in touch if you're just going to be all over the place emotionally and treat her like crap by dragging her through more emotional confusion? I'd think that the person who was broken up with would have more emotional issues like this. I know break ups affect both parties in various ways, but it's like we're witnessing them emotionally struggle with their decision and they're dragging you along for the ride.
So what gives?

It's because they're hurt emotionally, but society teaches guys that they aren't supposed to express those feelings. So guys keep those feelings bottled up, but something big like a break-up can create such strong feelings that a guy can't keep them in. This leads some guys to have erratic behavior as bits of emotions escape and affect the way he acts.1
