You said it right. It's toxic. And until you make that decision to block him, he's never going to get out of your head. Guys like that like seeing how there control over you keeps you running back. So the more you resist the more they try. And it seems the more you fall for it.
Simply don't over complicate the equation with things he has said, promises to do, or ways he makes you feel. You effectively have answered your own question.
You KNOW his words hold no meaning,
You KNOW he is toxic and his words are poison.
You KNOW that the more you resist the more he tries like it's some sort of game with little to no emotion.
So be the bigger person, be kind to yourself and take him out of the equation all together!
