Is my ex boyfriend stringing me along or does he want to get back together?

I am 23, dated my ex for a little over 2 years and he broke up with me a month ago. At the beginning I begged and pleaded for him to come back (I know, wrong), but he said he didn't love me and wanted space. So I tried to go for no contact but he messaged me after 2 days saying I'm not being myself for not texting him so I should text. So I did reply his messages but never initiated contacts and at the same time pretended I have moved on and am happy with my life (happy yes, but happier with him)

We kept contacting and he gives up his own information about his days and his achievements. However, he rarely asks about me, and if he does, all he is concerned about is who I am hanging out with or are there any guys around etc. He also started asking me to hang out with him and sometimes with his friends and appear in his family functions as he hasn't told his parents about the break up. We have been hanging out everyday for the past week (week 4 post-break up) and I have mistakenly slept with him twice in the past 2 weeks.

He stated twice in the past 2 weeks that he thinks I have moved on. So I vaguely answered him I don't give up on things easily, but there isn't anything I can do to change his mind so we should just completely move on. At first he said we will follow the flow. Then he told me has told his close friends that he wants to eventually get back with me, as he thinks I am 'wife material', but does not want to get back together straight away as it appears childish. So I tried to let some of my loving emotions seep through my interactions with him.

However, I don't feel much love and respect from him through our interactions. Sure he does put his arms on my shoulders and stroke my hair in front of his friends, but he doesn't care enough to ask about my personal matters ever since break up. Also, one of the things I told him I hate him doing before we broke up, he is purposefully doing it more in front of me. If he does want to truly get back together, shouldn't there be love and respect even though we aren't officially back together?
