(Post-Breakup) What does he mean?

Ex broke up with me 8 months ago saying that he wanted to be alone and not be in a relationship for another few more years. I broke the no contact rule and he automatically tells me that he met someone, but is not in a relationship. He still said that he likes being alone even though he mean someone who is just like him.

Is this a common breakup line that most guys use? Can you help me understand how he can still enjoy being alone even though he "met" someone?

(He wanted the breakup. The day I packed up my stuff and had to leave he was bawling. He would leave voicemails saying how he loved me when he was drunk. However, this stopped completely after 4 months post breakup.)
