Why did he mention a girl he used to date?

Anonymous
I was at a Christmas dinner and the guy that I have a crush on asked if he can join the ladies table and he sat next to me. He was speaking to another woman across from him as I was talking to the other women and I overheard him say “someone I was dating” I didn’t hear the entire conversation my ears only picked up on that part.

Why did he decide to bring that up? and why didn’t he say ex-girlfriend instead of “a girl or someone I was dating”?
