Long stories short, after a year we separated we are finally on good terms and talking again. My ex is pretty responsive and polite in everything, it's like we become friends and finally get a fresh start, until I asked about his new date he just becomes defensive/abrupt.
He eventually apologized for his reaction, and I apologized too as I may have crossed the line, and I asked him if there's anything else I should not talk about or bring up, and his reply was:
"Nah, you're fine.. I just don't want to talk about relationships or anything about us in that way.. Everything else is good to go"
For sake of maintaining positive relationship, I didn't want to push him further in this regard. But I am curious though, if we are friends and over the romance, then why can't we talk about our new dating lives, as you would do with your other friends?

Well because you guys are ex's and deep down you guys can never be just friends, you can't go from loving someone so deeply to thinking of them in only a platonic way, its because you guys have to because your broke up for a reason and you've both accepted it. He perhaps feels he doesn't want to talk about his love life because mentally he's not ready to share that with you and doesn't feel that you both are able to tell each other freely without feeling awkward.0
