why do guys lift their shirts up while talking to someone? I saw my ex and he kept lifting his shirt up while we were conversating but eventually stopped. Im not sure if he was just being a douche or trying to impress me. Guys suggestion?

If you are talking about the "casually pull up my shirt and rub my stomach/abs" move, it's just what you think it is - showing off to get your attention.
It's a male equivalent of a girl putting on a push-up bra and a really low-cut top and then either leaning forward or intentionally laughing to jiggle her boobs - it's saying "here's what I've got - do you like what you see?"1

I don't know really... But I have noticed for some time that "I" have been doing something similar haha😯!!! And no, not showing my boobs... But for some reason if I'm standing up and start a conversation with Someone, for some odd unknown reason, in the mid of the conversation, I slip my hand in my shirt and I touch my stomach o. o and just feel it like trying to find something there.. And slowly I'm lifting up my shirt!! I'm not at all trying to show off or turn someone on by this haha.. I just started doing this and I didn't even notice it until someone pointed it out...
So from THIs weird experience I' have came up with a plausible theory... Maybe they are feeling their abs? And then just suddenly lift it at some point, with nonreal intention to show off or try to flirt and such.. Just simply something.. And in the end nothig really at all.. As far as a meaning goes... But I could be wrong... Maybe guys have a different reason 😯!1
