Our expert says:
It makes excellent sense if he is emotionally dishonest and uncaring and selfish, and wants to keep you both as spares or alternates. There's no excuse to say his life is messed up at present - who except him messed it up ? And to lie to you, but brag about his love for her on Facebook, suggests he is unfaihful and rather stupid, too.
Leave him to sort out his apparently messed up life, and to sort things out with his ex, who may get little joy out of him.
Move on, don't communicate further with him nor pay attention or respond if he contacts you. YOu're lucky to have found out about this before becoming more involved. There are surely better people for you to form friendships with.
Nonni is right. I have a saying : "Man who likes to butter his bread on both sides, usually drops the slice".
