Why do you keep in touch with your ex?

Went through a bad break up a few months ago and have recently been emailing back and forth with my ex. Our conversation is at a point where I can either let it die or keep it up. I've been trying to weigh the pros and cons and honestly can't think of too many pros. I'm just curious about people who do stay in touch with their ex(es). What do you gain from it?

Not really looking for advice on my particular situation(very ugly break-up, moved to different parts of the country), but mostly just curious about those that do keep in touch. To me it mostly just seems a way to keep a flame lit.
