Why would an ex ask if you’re dating someone new?

Long story short me and my ex broke up four years ago by email. He claimed he couldn’t do the distance anymore since we no longer lived in the same town. We have talked from time to time in the past four years but yesterday seemed different. He asked me how’s my dating life going and I answered honestly because I’m currently not seeing anyone. He asked me why not you’re sexy, hot and gorgeous. I’m not sure if he’s playing mind games or he’s actually wanting to know about my life now. Last year we had a chance to try again and see if we could work things out since we’re back in the same town but when I needed someone he wasn’t there for me. I’m not sure if I’m thinking too much about it or he actually still does have feelings towards me. Does anyone know what this means?
