When a Guy Blocks You: What Does It Mean and What to Do

By on May 16, 2018

One of the worst things about social media is the fact that you can be deleted and blocked from someone’s life without so much as a second thought, in less time than it takes to blink. To be so happy in love one minute, only to find that you can’t even see your BAE’s Facebook or Instagram page the next; there’s only one thing to do when you’ve been blocked by your guy … 

When a guy blocks you- what does it mean and what to do 2

Don’t React

Of course, there are a hundred and one ways of dealing with this particular situation, but one thing is for certain — he’s mad or sad and needs a little time. He’s *that* mad he doesn’t even want to see your social media accounts, let alone speak to you. If the two of you try to communicate on any level there’s a good chance the situation will just get worse … and more heated. You’ll both say things that you didn’t mean but the other person won’t be able to forget that you ever said them and that little lover’s tiff you had has the potential to turn into something deeply troubling. Perhaps even relationship-ending. 

When a guy blocks you, give him some space. Let him have some time to think and relax. If the two of you have come to blows, chasing him further is just going to chase him away. You shouldn’t beg for his time, nor should you keep chasing him for it. If he doesn’t want you in his life right now, get on with yours. 

  • Get the girls around and have some drinks and a movie. 
  • Invite your parents around for dinner and a catchup. 
  • Go to the gym like you keep saying you’re going to do, but never do. 
  • Do something else — don’t pine for him, don’t sit and wait for him, just get on with your life and let things play out just as they’re going to. 

When a guy blocks you- what does it mean and what to do 3

Don’t React Like This … 

If he blocks you on Facebook, don’t message him on Instagram. He’ll block you on there too, and then you’ll need to resort to using Twitter. What if he blocks you there? Whatsapp next? Then iMessage? What about Skype? 

If you keep going around the social media accounts, there’s a good chance he’ll just keep blocking you. Take the first blocking as a sign — this chap needs his space. 

> > If he WANTS you to chase him around the various social media accounts to “prove” how much you’ll do for him, he’s playing games. You don’t need that drama in your life. Boy, bye! < <

While we’re on the subject of other things NOT to do, don’t scream and shout at him. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again — he needs some space. Shouting and screaming at him is not giving him space. We know that you don’t want to lose your BAE, but hurling abuse at him is not going to keep him in your clutches. 

One final point that we feel it is important to bring to your attention — stalking his social media accounts using your friend’s social media account is always a good idea in theory but usually ends up going wrong somewhere along the line. You will accidentally ‘like’ an update from months ago, for example, making him aware of EXACTLY what you’re doing. He’s going to know that it’s your best friend letting you use her account.

Do React Like This …

Spend some time on yourself — treating and loving yourself. Self-care is very underrated but oh-so-vital, and if he won’t love you in the way that you would like him to, perhaps it’s about time that you started to love yourself? 

Treat yourself to a pamper weekend or have that extra slice of chocolate cake. You’ll add an extra half an hour on at the gym to compensate for it, right? 

Get your hair done. Nails? Yeah, get a manicure while you’re there too. All of those things that you don’t seem to find the time to do anymore now that you’re in a relationship; that’s what you should be doing. Sitting around waiting for him to make that unblock call is probably just going to break your heart. As the saying goes, you should be with the guy who ruins your lipstick with kisses, not your mascara with tears. 

When the time is right — when you have both calmed down — you can talk again, perhaps sort out the problems you had or have. But you do need to have calmed down first. You can’t solve an argument by starting a brand new one. You almost must remember that the resolution might not always be quite as you’d hoped.

    I feel like my story is so stupid yet I can’t get it off my mind for some reason. I know I should probably forget about him but I can’t. I was talking to this boy that asked for my number at this party for about of week. I could tell he was really into me but then all of sudden got dry. I left him on read and then we didn’t talk for two weeks. Like an idiot, I got drunk and messaged him asking y he never hit me up. He said he was busy with family stuff but wouldn’t tell me what. He said he would hit me up when he’s available. I didn’t know how trust worthy that’s statement was and while being drunk I wasn’t afraid to let him know it, so I went off. He ended up blocking me. I don’t know if I was in the wrong and if I should have given him space or if my intuition was right but now I regret it because I started to really like him (even tho we only talked for a week lol) and idk what to do. I’m very protective of my feelings which makes it reallllyyy hard to trust people but that also ruins any possibility for a real relationship and I don’t know how to fix it even if it’s not with this guy just like for future relationships.

      The two of you were speaking, and you decided that you no longer wanted to speak with him. You left him on read and did not speak with him for two weeks. You then reached out to him and went off on him. He then decided to block you because of your behaviors. Allow thoughts of him to fade and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. Determine what you want for your future without him. Have a great day, Sarah!

    I am having some issues that have made me really moody and I have explained to my part Enter, instead of understanding, she decided to complain about me not checking on her.
    Today she told me some news about her having more time to spend with me and I said okay, she started complaining becuse she didn’t like my response and she blocked me on WhatsApp. What should I do?
    This isn’t the first time I will complain about her not handling things well when I’m down

      The two of you were maintaining a social relationship. During your discussion, she made the decision the complain about your relationship. She then determined that would be appropriate for her to block you. Do not reach out to her at this time. If she makes the decision to contact you in the future, then speak with her about your thoughts and feelings at that time. Have a great day, Mark!

    There is this one guy whom I renewed contact with on a party last week. He started texting me again then, saying he broke up w his girlfriend. He would be sexting all day, sending me d*ck pics without even asking. We arranged to meet up two days ago and he canceled due to lack of time, apparently, had to finish sth. Then he said “let’s meet tomorrow”. I was ok with it and very tolerant. Next day, I got blocked by him. For no reason. He was the one initiating sex and sexting, I barely even texted him first. I am blocked both on Whatsapp and Instagram. Wondering why? Any logical/possible reason? We should have had sex but seems like he gave up bcs of sth. My sources told me he hadn’t returned to his ex. I don’t have a reasonable explanation, I wasn’t even being obssesed over him lol. Thx for replying in advance. Would love to hear your opinion on this. Never had this happen to me before.

      The two of you were sexting and thinking about maintaining a romantic relationship. Something in his life influenced him, and this caused him to block you. Because he has blocked you, it is clear that he is no longer interested in maintaining a relationship with you. Allow thoughts of him to fade, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. You will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, Anon!

    I am married, but had an affair with someone, just once but we continued to talk with each other over the phone for almost a year, he has since migrated and calls but when I tried to call as well, lately it’s been ringing out , don’t know if it is that he has blocked me.

      You are married and this person is no longer answering your calls. Allow thoughts of him to fade. Focus your emotional energy on your partner. If you are no longer interested in maintaining a relationship with him, then inform him of your decision to end this relationship. Have a great day, Ivy!

    I’d been talking to a guy for about a month or so. Everything was fine but then he stopped texting me. I obviously didn’t text him either. A few days later he texted me, apologising for not texting me and told me he’ll explain everything the next day in college. Later on, he didn’t approach me because “I was with my friends but he’d have approached me if I was alone” , we got into a fight and he ended up blocking me. What should I do? Should I just move on?

      The two of you maintained a distant social relationship. Overtime, something changed, and he stopped texting you. Eventually, the two of you got into a fight and he blocked you. Allow thoughts of him to fade, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. You will draw positive people and energy toward you by sharing your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, Emily!

      He asked you for money, and you informed him of your valid reasons why you could not give him money. He chose to be rude to you. He then blocked you. Count yourself lucky that he removed himself from your life. His behaviors were inappropriate, and you do not want to maintain a relationship with someone like that. Focus your emotional energy elsewhere, and determine what you want for your future without him. Have a great day, Mahirakhan!

        You are not financially responsible for other people. When people ask for money and remove you from their life when you do not provide for their lifestyles, then you should be accepting of their decision. Allow this person to fade from your mind, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. If they reach out to you in the future, then speak with that person about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, SA!

      It sounds like you are fully aware of his relationship status and his desires regarding your relationship. If he is in a relationship, then do not speak with him. His behaviors are clear indications that he is not someone that you want to maintain a relationship with. Allow thoughts of him to fade, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. You will draw positive people and energy into your life by sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Terisa!

    Me and this guy were openly dating for about 8 months then started focusing on each other for 4 months. We moved in together and started traveling together. We got into a huge fight, broke up, blocked each other but still contacted each other. He ended up coming to get his stuff and we had sex. I felt bad after it so I didn’t say anything to him after. Then a week later I reached out and he responded (so we aren’t blocked ). I want to see him to move past the fight but I’m not sure if this is too soon. I’m not sure what to do

      The two of you are maintaining a uncertain social and emotional relationship. At this time, the two of you are speaking. Make a decision about what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Nourish this relationship by spending additional time together in the future. Have a great day, Sarah!

      Hi
      I had a relationship for 4years now,we have visited each other back home,last time I went to his home he had less attention on me,I raised the concern but he said he had no money to move around..but I suspected chatting a woman on his phone..later on I did my research from his sister in-law since I was staying in his family house, I decided to bring the issue when I reached home, so he insisted I tell him who told me the issue or the relationship ends automatically.. And immediately he unfriended me on FB,blocked me on WhatsApp but after 20mins he unblocked me on WhatsApp but now we don’t talk since I told him to pay me back money I had lend him which he said he will in short time.after a week I greeted him and he replied he is not interested in greeting but if I had something to tell I write and if it required reply he would reply if not he would not respond. How do I deal with such. Should I move on?but back on my mind I know he has a woman!

        The two of you maintained a relationship for four years. You brought up your concerns about his behaviors. He immediately responded by blocking you. He is not interested in maintaining a respectful relationship with you. He has no intention of paying you back. Make a decision about what you want for your future without him. Focus your emotional energy elsewhere. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy in your life. Have a great day, Gracy!

    He is 33 and I am 25. We have known each other for several months, and have been meeting each other for twice to discuss some topic related to schoolwork.

    The third time we had coffee and he asked me a lot like what kind of music I enjoy listening, whether I am interested in having dinner with him or watching a film. We hugged before I left his car. On that day we had coffee, he told me he would be busy for a few days and so am I. So we kind of made an agreement that we will contact again after those super crazy busy days.

    After a few days later, I texted him whether he is still busy or not. The Whatsapp shows two grey ticks; I ignored that for two days and texted him again, asked him sill busy or not and I want to meet. This time, the message showed blue ticks but the previous one was still grey. He said he wants to meet me too. He asked me whether I want some wine at my place, but I have a roommate and my roommate disagreed. Therefore, I told him maybe at other places or his place. Grey ticks again and he didn’t reply to me at all. After two days, I asked him is there anything wrong with his phone, blue ticks this time and he told me he is outside the city so cannot always receive the message and will text me tomorrow when he is back.

    I have been waiting for him three days, honestly, he is really attractive to me and I text him again. Simple text, ask he is back or not. Still grey ticks and no response. I was confused this time and asked him whether his WhatsApp has any problems and told him about one of my exams he helped me before. Luckily, this time shows blue ticks. However, he replied, he can’t answer too much texts and ask me to have a great summer. And block me.
    Do you think this guy has a girlfriend or he just suddenly hates me?

      The two of you were maintaining a social relationship. He left, and the two of you had various discussions. In the end, he made the decision to block you. This may be an indication of various influences in his life. He made the decision to block you, so it is clear that he is not interested in maintaining a relationship with you. It is possible that he has a romantic relationship that he is maintaining. Determine what you want for your future without him, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. Have a great day, Christine!
