Is he being a dick?

So my ex and I stayed friends after the breakup and its been maybe 6 months now since we broke up. We talk most days through text but we don't actively meet up or anything. We had a super deep convo last night that I want opinions on...

So he was like we should hang out sometime, and I was like yeah sure sounds good. Then he was like what would your friends think though (bc he knows they hate him) and I was like what would yours think? Then we continued talking and he said apparently his friends always tell him to stop talking to me and they think I am kinda cringe.
Wtf should I be offended by this or am I over reacting?
Then he suggested we meet in secret.. wtf
