The 6th Sense of Ex-boyfriends

I’m convinced that men have a sixth sense.  They seem to know when other men are in the vicinity of their ex-girlfriends.  Why else are old boyfriends suddenly coming out of the woodwork?  After several weeks of dates with a few nice men, and finding one I have a great connection with (but not dating exclusively), this week brought a couple of surprises and it’s only Tuesday. 
Yesterday, I received a phone call from the first guy I ever dated from online… he’s working in the area and could I meet him for lunch?  He’s as handsome as ever with those devastating blue eyes and smile but is such a damned player, I won’t ever be able to trust him again.  We caught up on each other’s lives and he asked if he could see me again.  Hmmm, I wonder if there’s an ulterior motive.  Still, I don’t see the harm in it since I’ve become resistant to his well-practiced charms.
Then this afternoon, I got a call at work from the sax player I went on a few dates with last year.  Nice guy but between his job, the classes he teaches and the gigs he plays, he hardly has time to call when he says he will, let alone date anyone regularly.  We did keep in touch after we stopped dating but I hadn’t heard from him in a well over a month.  He said today that he missed talking to me and wanted to know what I was doing… oh and perhaps we could meet for coffee sometime this week?   
I figure any day now, I’ll get a call from B wanting to hang out after work.  Why do men do this?  Can anyone explain this phenomenom?
