Is it because that person is still in love or is it the ego which gets hurt?

You're negating the fact the "dumped person" may have truly been "in love" and was blindsided by the breakup!
I think ego might be an issue if it's being rejected for a date or they had only been out a few times.
A (relationship) is different.
That's why I said for the specific cases and not all of them. It doesn't apply to the person who is truly in love though what I said is possible in the long relationships as well, maybe because hardly anyone understands the true meaning of LOVE.
I doubt there's an "universal definition" for love.
Each of us has our own idea of what love is "suppose" to feel and look like along with how people "in love" should behave.
If they're not loving us "the way" (we want) we don't feel loved!
