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.

    Hi…Please help me. This man I liked, he blocked me after a fight, and begged him not to block me but he did anyways. He was like a player, always entertaining other girls. And he was a narcissist, instead of apologizing, he would always put the blame on me. Now I am blaming myself for him blocking me, when he was wrong in the first place for not being faithful to me. I just feel so bad, this was my first relationship and he was 12 years older than me (he was very experienced I guess). He blocked me, and I have absolutely no way to contact him. Please tell me what i should do..

      You are aware that he is a narcissist and player. He has decided to block you. He has chosen to not be faithful to you. Those are three reasons to not maintain a relationship with him. Your relationship is over, so be happy that you are free of him. Allow thoughts of him to fade, and determine what you want for your future without him. Have a great day, Sonia!

    So I meet this guy because of another girl on snapchat. It sounds childish but moving forward lol. We started talking and he was very understanding and he cared, at least I thought, then finally I met him while drunk and shit happened we still talked after that he told me that I was only his girl and that he wasn’t gonna throw me away like every other guy had done to me, we met again, this night was magic, i didn’t go home before 4 am because I just didn’t want to leave him, I felt him, we understood each other, he was pretty bitter when I was about to leave it just seemed that he wanted me to be gone even after that magical night because he said that it meant a lot and he has only been intimate with 1 girl before me so it just does not make sense. The day after he never texted me so I did and told him that I missed him, he pretended that his mom took his phone and I told him why are you lying, he blocked me, he blocked me everywhere, I’m just so confused. Like I’m asking you a question what he did really hurts me, I just wish he would give me a reason instead of keep blocking. I tried to be my best self with him but nothing is ever good enough.

      He has decided to block you. This means that he is not interested in maintaining a relationship with you. He lied to you, and you caught him in his lie. This means that he is not the type of person that you want to maintain a relationship with him. Allow thoughts of him to fade, and determine what you want for your future without him. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, Mysterious!

    I have been in love with the same guy for 6 years going on 7 on and off again, whatever happens we always come back together. We have been separated for the a year now and we came back to each other and confessed our love once again, he didn’t want to start anything as he is trying to fix himself to be the man I deserve I respect that and stand by his decision. Recently he left for England to see he’s family he hasn’t seen in 15 years I stand by that decision, we have been talking every day saying I love you I miss you even planing kids and marriage…one day I asked to know that we would be together at the end of it and then he told me it’s not my fault he doesn’t know what he is doing if he’s staying or come if back and that he does love me there’s no doubt about it he always will and obviously I was hurt cause I’ve stood by all his decisions even planed if he moved here for good to move to and now he has completely blocked me on every social media and completely deleted his accounts and him being overseas I have no way to contact him and it just hurts to know he said all those things then just cut me out.

      He has decided to block you and no longer communicate with you. His behavior was inappropriate and unacceptable, but he has made his decision. This relationship has ended, so you will find benefit in allowing thoughts of him to fade. Focus your emotional energy elsewhere at this time. If he reaches out to you in the future, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings at that time. Have a great day, Jessica!
