I briefly spoke to my ex, telling him to burn my love letter because I didn't feel he deserved it, he'd been making out he despised me for the past week or so and the words in the letter didn't apply any more. I thought he'd do it or throw it away but he said he'd keep it. He then got nasty and was saying I was acting like a 12 year old somehow, that this was like something from highschool and even said it's "just a piece of paper", yet he seems intent on keeping it. I asked why and he said because he wanted to and he wasn't going to do what I tell him.
Despite this, he was saying "I'm still here for you", he's been like this since we broke up and I don't know how he can be saying that after how he's treated me. He's been an absolute dick towards me, making the whole break up much harder. He even apologised because he realised just how badly he treated me after the break up, he purposely rubbed things in my face and he's been incredibly cold and heartless towards me.
He not long started opening about how he felt and we were on better terms, but then in that brief conversation, I could see what a dick he'd become. He was so rude, uncaring and cruel in what he said. He started just sending those big thumbs up instead of responding which just shows immaturity.
Why has he gone from being more receptive to real nasty towards me? I never felt anyone love me as much as he did so to have him treat me like this, hurts and goes against what he made me believe for two years.
Why will he still be offering to be there for me whilst he's being so cruel to me? He messaged me yesterday saying "I hope your okay?" and I told him to leave me alone which he did. How on earth could he help me anyway?

well you gave him the letter so technically he can do what he wants with it. I don't get why he would just get rid of it like you want, but to each his/her own. A lot of guys use the coldness as a shield against emotion. He is probably acting like a dick because it keeps him from feeling the emotions of pain and guilt he would/should be feeling.1
