I think being mean/mad after being hurt is pretty natural.
Wouldn't you get angry/mad if someone just used you for sex? I know it's not exactly the same thing but I mean, come on. If you get mad/angry after being hurt than it would be reasonable to assume that men do as well.
So yes, I think he is being mean because you hurt him.
Well.. the guy most likely lost his trust in you so I guess you might need to work on rebuilding that & that's if the guy can forgive/look past it.
I know I wouldn't be able the trust the same person twice even if I loved them but then again that's how I am. Maybe the guy your with is different.

It's not an act, he's mad at you because you hurt him.
Maybe he does love you, but feels like because you broke your promise you don't love him. It all boils down to trust.
"I feel if you love someone, you shouldn't be mean to them. "
I feel if you love someone, you shouldn't lie to them.

"Should" is a crazy word. "If you love someone, you shouldn't be mean to them." If you love someone, you shouldn't break a promise to them. He's most likely being mean to protect himself and to emphasize what a big deal it is, since you clearly think it's not. You hurt him. What are you doing to take responsibility on yourself and make it better?
He's just masking the hurt with an emotion that makes him temporarily stronger
