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.

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 was dating a guy
    And he then all of a sudden went abit depressed & down
    I tried to cheer him up with things like I’ll be there for you stuff like that. On his birthday I surprised him with a gift weekend away I allowed a few days till I asked if he received a gift at all from me and he blanked me for 2 days. I said that was rather rude and uncalled for and that his acting a dick when all I wanted to do was help bring him up again. And he said to me were over your behaviour is ridiculous. Was like what! He wouldn’t speak to me face to face or on the phone. And he then blocked my number then unblocked my number. I left it 2 days – I asked if he was all ok and how come he unblocked my number did you wanna talk. He then blocked my number again. :-/ not really sure what to do from here.
    Shale I just leave him?
    I don’t wanna message him on Instagram or anything incase it pushes him away further. Shale I leave him alone and see what happens? Is that the best option. Advice would be appreciated. Thank you 💕

      He is not interested in respecting your relationship. He has decided to block you twice. Allow thoughts of him to fade, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. He is not someone that you want to maintain a relationship with. Share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, Kathleen!

      He has made the decision to focus on his children. He should make this decision. It is unfortunate that the mother of his children forced him to do this, but you can certainly understand his position. Allow thoughts of him to fade, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. Abstain from maintaining relationships with people who are in committed relationships in the future. Share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, Cynthia!

    I know this boy for like my entire life, but we did not talk in person for like a few years. Just because we grew up, but I still see him in the neighborhood sometimes. The thing is I added him on Snapchat so he added me back and he watched my story all cool and all of a sudden he blocked me. I don’t want to ask him but I need an explanation, because I don’t want to let him think he is special or something and he can block me without any reasons

      He had made the decision to block you. This may be for a variety of reasons. It is possible that he feels shy or uncertain. Since he has blocked you, you may want to allow thoughts of him to fade. Focus your emotional energy elsewhere. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life. If you see him in person, then you may want to speak with him in person, rather than online. Have a great day, Kiki!

      He is married. His behaviors are inappropriate. He is not interested in maintaining a relationship with you. Make a decision about what you want for the future of this relationship. Allow thoughts of him to fade, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. Share your kindness and compassion with the people in your life, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, Areej!

      He has decided to block you. He is not interested in maintaining a relationship with you at this time. This happens when you share your naked photos with strangers. Make a decision about what you want for your future without him, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. Abstain from sharing similar pictures in the future. Have a great day, Ashley!

    So, I was good friends with this guy like really close. He asked me out to a dance as friends, and we could talk to each other on all subjects. We were like the best of buds. Recently, he made an Instagram, so I was going to follow his account, but he blocked me on it. Instead, he’s following my ex and his friends. Not only that but his guy friends won’t tell me what’s going on, so I’m pretty much in the dark. Well actually his guy friends and him both blocked me on that same week. Furthermore, I’m not sure if it’s connected to my ex and his friends telling me that they’re going take revenge on me which is pretty immature. I hate the fact that I’m being so clingy and won’t move on unless I get an explanation, but perhaps that’s their game plan? I have no idea what to do and how to move on from this.

      The behaviors of these people in your life are confusing. The decision to block you may be an indication of his uncertain about their feelings for you. Make a decision about what youw ant for the future of this relationship. Determine if it is reasonable to reach out to this person at this time. 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, Abby!

    So this guy I was talking to he made me feel special . And he actually told me once we stop fussing was if I’m gone be serious then we can do this. So as things went right he posted a tweet with just laughing emoji. And I comment and said what’s so funny . The next day thinking I’m see a reply or something ,, he done block me off his page so I kept calling him no answer he’s not texting me back . Then all of a sudden the block me from his phone, block me off Facebook , Instagram and unfriend me on Snapchat. All because of that .? Then when I did my investigation found out he had a whole girlfriend but was calling me his bae and everything else . I’m more then crush because he lead me on and he hurt my feelings so much that I can’t even stand to look at him when it’s time to go back to school .

      The two of you shared a relationship. It turns out that he has a partner. He has decided to block you. This means that he is no longer interested in maintaining a relationship with you. Focus your emotional energy elsewhere, and determine what you want for your future without him. If his relationship ends and he reaches out to you, then you may want to determine if you believe he is the type of person that you want to nourish a relationship with. You will draw positive people and energy into your life by sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Patricia!

    I met this guy who is 18 years old and im 14. It’s been the third time we went back to each other after a fight. And we fight about the stupidest things and he gets all worked up. This time we fought about why i did not want to go visit him to talk things through but i told him nicely that i was busy that day and couldn’t come. He got mad and we fought. Now he blocked me on whatsapp. What should i do? Can you please help me and give some advice?

      There are two aspects of this relationship which you should address. First, he is an adult and you are not. Depending on which country you live in, there may be legal and social reasons for why this relationship may not be viable. Additionally, he had made the decision to block you. This may be for a variety of reasons. Allow thoughts of him to fade, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. Have a great day, Tylo!

    I was seeing a guy for almost a year, things were fantastic- we fought a lot but we both always new there was a connection and we kept going back to eachother- I questioned him all of the time if he was seeing someone else he said it got to him- and blamed me for having to see pshyciatrist- as of late things got worse- he was so irritated to speak with me- I told him I fell in love with him and he told me to stop trying so hard because its driving him away and than I called him on a sunday night and told him how he had been making me feel and he said im going o call it but than said he wanted me in his life and lets move forward and than the very next day not a single word blocked me from his phone and Instagram and fb and know I am left hurt and confused – he said he was in a bad spot in life a few months ago what should I do ?

      The two of you maintained a strong social relationship. He began to blame you for his personal problems and poor decisions. He then made the decision to block you. Allow thoughts of him to fade, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, JJ!
