Asked advice about an ex (who is in a year relationship and happy) who always asks how is my love going (even when there is absolutely no direction toward the subject) when we make contact (very platonic). Answer was that men always want to feel like number one, and that the question about how my love life is going, is a loaded questions. My question is loaded with what? Self interest and ego boost, or an interest to actually know about my love and why?
How loaded is a loaded question for guys?

It's a conversation starter. It establishes personal connection and intimacy and gets you thinking about something. Beyond that it doesn't really matter what you answer: Truth or fiction, all the same.2
It's an off the cuff flirt that he may use on others
but in your case, I sense also a bit of "self interest/ego" afoot as exs never let go completely.
It's best to simply flirt back & keep your poker face, cards (love 411) close to your vest (hidden)
