Why does he still reach out?

My ex boyfriend (for the record IIIII was the one who broke up with HIM about 4 months ago) still texts me to say hi and send funny memes, etc. Never anything sexual or romantic. I even offered him friends with benefits at one point, and he said he could NEVER do that with me (uh, ok...) At most, he'll say "It's so good to hear from you!" or "Looking forward to catching up soon". Once he invited me to dinner, but I couldn't go. So my question is have I a) been friend-zoned, b) am some kind of back-up plan, or c) is there another option I'm not seeing?
