My ex has recently broken up with me and we're trying to be friends like we used to be before dating. Thing is, he's constantly saying or doing stuff that is kinda douchey. He's always been a really nice guy, but now he's acting kinda mean. He does stuff like send censored pics asking "how are my abs looking". I've once replied with a censored pic of my ass asking "how's my booty looking?" and he ignored me. He sends pics of open condoms, talks about this girl he's fucking, things like that. It feels like he's intentionally trying to make me feel bad. Any idea why he's doing this? Thanks a lot!

It sounds like he was genuinely hurt by the break up.
Break ups are never easy, this might be a part of his mending process.
It sounds like he is trying to make you feel the way he feels.
It may be easier said than done. but I would try to ignore his foolish attempts to get under your skin.
send him a text back. "I'm sorry you're hurting. I really wish you nothing but the best. but these childish texts are kind of why we are no longer together. again I wish you the best."
kill him with kindness. he will quit sooner than if he sees he is getting a rise out of you.2
