P. S. We were 3 years together and he broke up 3 months ago.

I don't know how your sex life is but this sounds like something my friends would attempt to do for a fuck buddy, If not maybe he just feels bad and don't want you to feel like you did something wrong. Maybe he's trying to give you closure or comfort

He should have termed this "taking a break"
b/c I feel he might be shopping other gals but wanting to keep some (you) on a string so when final culling time comes, you'll be there.
Beyond these obvious pragmatics
is the fact that 3 years ingrains one into another and he misses the positive aspects of that life... maybe not as drastically as losing an arm... but there are times in the night where something (you) important seems missing/lacking in his life
