do you think a guy would say this to try and hurt me or do you think he could really mean it?
Most Helpful Guy
He probably means it, anybody male or female stands to gain nothing from lying about about a message like that. If i had to guess there were plenty of problems and you didn't see eye to eye. In a similar situation if I felt I burdened by all the problems in a relationship I would probably feel the same, though I don't know if I would actually say it to my ex, to me that is just rubbing salt in the wound.
That sounds pretty mean but I don't know his personality so it would be hard to say if he was doing it to be mean, if he isn't a mean guy then he is a very oblivious to the feelings of others.

You broke up with him. So, I'm not really sure what difference it makes if he meant it or not.
