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. 

When a guy blocks you- what does it mean and what to do 1

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.

    Me and this guy have been friends for a while and made it known we liked each other. We never could get on the same page but we definitely like each other. The other day after some years we met up everything went well we were set to hang out again. Then he blocked me. He did say he was confused still but knew he liked me previously . Why do you think he blocked me?

      He has decided to block you. There may be various influences in his life which may have caused him to behave in this manner. For whatever reason, he has determined that he is currently unable to maintain a relationship with you at this time. Determine what you want for your future without him. Learn from this relationship and apply this knowledge to your future relationships. You will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Sharon!

      His behaviors are not indications that you did anything wrong. His rudeness is a sign that he is an immature person. It is beneficial that you are no longer maintaining this relationship. Determine what you want for your future without him, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere.

    I was in this NSA situation. I didn’t like him nor did he like me. We just liked hooking up. We had this routine of seeing each other twice a week. Mind you, we hardly talked to one another. The only time we talked was when we’d ask each other if we are available that day. He blocked me last night out of the blue after we hooked up. Why would he do that if I didn’t do anything but give him what he wanted?

    I was texting a guy for about a week nonstop, and everything was going great, he seemed really into me, but I didn’t reply to one of his texts for a day because I was super busy. I texted him the next day to reconnect with him, heard no response, and then the day after I tried to send him another text and found out he had blocked me. Am I the one in the wrong here, or is he overreacting? Should I try to reach out to him to apologize?

Now he wont reply my calls or message. Called me a psychopath for looking at his twitter. Then he blocked me. I cant stop crying i love him a lot. I feel so sick and i have exams too. I just keep crying i thought he loved me. I feel like going back in time and stopping the whole relationship i am so sad. I only told him he keeps acting like he doesnt care if i leave n that it hurts. Now it hurts so much. I really loved him

      Your boyfriend made the decision that he no longer was interested in maintaining a relationship with you. He felt that your decision to look at his Twitter account was unacceptable. This likely means that he was hiding something or had something that you didn’t want him to see. Because of this, he made the decision to block you. Make a decision about what you want for your future without him. You will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Amoudath!

    There’s a guy that confessed that he’s in love with me some months ago, he even said he doesn’t want a relationship if I’m not comfortable and that he just wants to marry me when he graduates. I too kinda have the same feelings for him but because of a past experience I somehow couldn’t say yes to him. I was scared of getting hurt,I didn’t want to get my heart broken again so I always denied my feelings in front of him even though he kept asking, then one day I blocked him on all social media because of some misunderstanding and he kept contacting me using his other number and stuff but I directly used harsh words again and said I have no feelings for him. After one month he again texted me saying I’m not forcing things on you but I don’t want to lose you at least we can be friends and I said yes, again after one month when it was his birthday I wanted to wish him but didn’t because I didn’t want to show my feelings for him suddenly he blocked me on every social media the next day of his birthday, I’m so confused idk I have feelings for him but I don’t want him to know, I want to be with him but I think I lost him and now I’m scared that he might have found someonelse, what should I do now?

    My name is Emilie and I’ve been friends with my boyfriend for over a year. Two weeks ago we confessed that we actually like each other a lot more and became boyfriend and girlfriend. First I need to inform that we’re long distance- he’s from the US and I’m from Denmark. He has also previously helped me get over a boyfriend ghosting me and we’d been talking almost every day since then. During the two weeks after we became gf/bf, we’ve been talking and texting every single day, right until Sunday. That day (early morning for me bc timezones) we talked like usual and he promised he’d call before work- said love you, miss you to each other and that was that. No red flags what so ever. I wake up and see his nickname gone on Snapchat and it won’t let me add him again. I go to Instagram, where the same thing happens. I check everything I can and nothing. Without warning or anything he had just blocked me, out of nowhere. I can’t ask what happened or anything and it just hurt, we had literally just talked with each other and suddenly that’s it. Blocked as easily as that. I still don’t know what to think, cause I keep thinking I did something wrong.. I don’t know about giving him time, when we had no arguments or anything that could’ve been a red flag. So yeah, that’s my story currently. It hurts a lot that he’s done exactly what he knows happened in my previous relationship, cause he was there for me.. only here it’s one step further- blocking me. I still very much love him and care so much about him, I just don’t know what to do.

      There may be various reasons for his actions. It is possible that he was maintaining a relationship with someone else. Regardless of his reasons, his actions were hurtful and inappropriate. He has deleted and blocked you, which means he is no longer interested in maintaining a relationship with you at this time. Determine what you want for your future without him, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. Have a great day, Emilie!

    I’ve been seeing a guy for a couple of months, nothing too crazy but just a few dates and regular talking. He always initiated conversations and dates, he recently told me he would like to see me again and I said I was having a busy period but would see him at some point. I then made time for him and asked him out on a date and he blocked me without replying despite conversations being normal prior to that. Is he crazy?

    Hello my name is Lisa and I’ve been talking to this guy for about 10 months and in the beginning everything was going really good. We asked each other questions to get to know one another better. Then maybe 2 weeks later we started arguing about simple things and little things as well, and we’ve been arguing ever since. One night I logged into my Snapchat and I seen a video that he posted of him and his female friend at the movies, and I called him after I seen it and asked him about it, and he said they were just hanging out at the movies and he also said he didn’t do anything wrong. So another night I asked him if we could trade phones and he said no, so when he told me that then I started thinking he might be hiding something in his phone from me or he doesn’t want me to see who’s sending him messages. It’s just that he gets mad when I mention something like he’s trying to hide something and he’s not telling me about it. So yesterday he got mad and started arguing again and then I sent him a message and told him that he has a bad attitude and he told me to leave him alone and I told him I wasn’t doing him anything so then he said that’s why he don’t talk to me cause I don’t listen and after he said that then he blocked me and said so he could have his peace from getting calls and texts. We are just two people that talk and aren’t in a relationship. It seems like he doesn’t want a relationship rite now, and he doesn’t have time for no one at the moment and I can tell that it seems like he is losing interest, cause he’s not communicating with me at all. How can we make things work out better for the both of us.

        Hello! I was blocked by my crush after his gf broke up with him because she discovered we were seeing each other. It s been 3 months and I m scared to contact him again. They were on a break but i think he was not supposed to see ME.
        Should I try to text him? They are not back together. Thanks!

          You were helping someone cheat on their partner. His partner then decided to end the relationship. He likely blames the relationship with he had with you for his relationship ending. This likely caused him to feel upset with you and with himself. He made the decision to block you. This means that he is no longer interested in maintaining a relationship with you. Determine what you want for your future without him, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. Have a great day, Elsy!
