My ex and I broke up a few months ago. Haven't had any contact with one another since and the break up itself wasn't very exciting-he just ended it and that was that. Recently I've heard of a few of my friends/mutual friends having "run ins" with him where he tries to defensively convince them how "respectful and well" he treated me even if they haven't brought it up. He was a good boyfriend but not perfect. Is he doing this because he is feeling guilty about the breakup and is feeling judged or something? No one gave him any flack for dumping me so I don't know why he's being so defensive about it.
Are you defensive when you feel guilty?

Just because people get defensive when they feel guilty doesn't mean they feel guilty every time when they get defensive...0

If these mutual friends are women, he might be trying to save face with them.
He wants to insue that his reputation is not damaged. And, he might be using this conversation starter to hear what you have been saying about him.
Either way, just ignore it. Forget about him. He dumped you. His loss.0
