It’s so confusing when you’re trying to understand his mind. On the one hand, he’s not responding to your texts, but then at the same time, he’s commenting on your Instagram posts.

When he started ignoring your calls and messages, it clearly meant that he was not interested in you. But if he has lost interest, why does he like your photos on social media.

Below are a few possible reasons for his behavior-

1. He is Seeking Attention

When he likes all your social media posts, it mostly means that he wants to give you attention. Still, sometimes it is also an indication that the guy himself wants attention.

He wants you to be talking about him with your colleagues and close friends. Maybe he wants to know if you still have a thing for him.

Don’t get too excited, because maybe it’s not about you.

2. He Wants to Keep his Future Prospects Open

Just because he likes your new selfie, it doesn’t necessarily mean that he wants to date you. Maybe he is doing it because he wants you to keep your doors open for him if he decides to make a move at any time in the future.

3. He Wants to Know If You Have Moved On

When he constantly scans your Facebook and Instagram profiles, it indicates that he wants to know how you are doing without having to call or text you.

He may be interested in knowing what you have been doing since he ghosted you. More particularly, he probably wants to know if you are dating someone.

After verifying that you are still single, he may have found it appropriate to like your photos.

Some guys  have this competitive trait where they’re constantly trying to one-up other guys. It doesn’t matter if they are dating you or not; they don’t want you to go out with anyone else.

4. He Wants to Stay in Touch With You

This is one of the top reasons he views all your stories and presses the like button on your pictures.

He could think that if he likes your post on social media, it will help him leave a better impression on you. This will in turn allow him to stay in your mind for a longer period of time.

For whatever reasons he ghosted you; he wants you to give him another chance if he decides to give another go at things.

7. He is Missing You

When he ghosted you, Maybe he was expecting you to be sad, miserable, and drowned in self-pity.

But when he saw your super sexy selfies on social media, it made him fall for you again. He started missing those times when you two were together and were having a great time.

He pressed the like button on your posts because, it made him feel nostalgic and reminded him of the good times.
