Why is my ex still upset if he said he's not mad at me anymore?

I contacted my ex today because I finally spoke with his family after two weeks and we made up. I am over him now and he said himself that he wanted to be friends when things were better. The conversation was short and not bad, we both mentioned that we had met one other guy since the breakup for a hookup, he even said he wasn't mad at me anymore and we each said we missed each other's friendship. However towards the end he suddenly said that talking to me was making him upset and abruptly ended the conversation.

Just curious what everyone thinks this means? Is he just lying? Or is he still in love with me?

Maybe by upset he just meant it's emotionally painful for him? That could be the case without him being mad at you, lying or in love with you, right?

Yes that makes perfect sense. He's just been giving me mixed signals is all. Thanks

Focus on yourself. Go do something productive like taking some classes at the local community college or something. Life’s too short to be worried about what someone who is never going to help you get anywhere in life thinks.

I have become friends with some of my exes, but it takes time, sometimes years. Then there are other exes that I simply don't care to mention or see ever again. If you're meant to be friends it'll happen - don't force it before either of you are ready.
