We dated for 1 year and a half. We took a break exactly 1 month ago due to fighting and him not thinking he loved me. Then he said he missed me and we got back together. Then we got in the same argument as we did before that break last Friday (July 18) and he wouldn't talk to me and ignored my calls and shut off his phone. I kept trying to call him and apolgizie, left a voicemail, and still nothing. Finally he said 'I don't want to talk' and how it stresses him out too much and the same thing happens all the time. Then I kept calling (stupidly) and no reply. Sunday - nothing. Monday - I ask for my DVD's back and he said ok. We plan to meet up Tues. I asked him over text if he loved me he said 'I don't know anymore'. I asked Tuesday what time I should come at and he said he had already dropped them off in my mailbox. I freaked out and knew it was the end so I said 'be a genuine person and do this in person' and he said 'no thanks'. I showed up at his doorstep with some old letters he gave me. We hugged and I cried and he was being pretty nice about it. He said that I should text him when I get home so I did and it was really basic conversation like 'hi. hi. sorry for showing up and not telling you. its ok. whatsup...' he only said what he was doing so I figured I might as well not answer (I'm trying the '30 day no contact' thing) until he asks about me cause I had shown him I cared too much. No reply. That was Tues, Jul 22. Now he has blocked me on Instagram and deleted the photo of us. He is snapchatting a blonde fat chick who looks like she might be a prostitute, and another girl who looks even younger than me. I assume he has met these girls online even though they live where we live. Do you think he blocked me to get my attention because I haven't spoken to him since Tuesday? We left it on good terms (i. e. friends) so i dont understand why he would block me on Instagram but not FB? Help please.

I'm sorry you're going through this, but he IS your ex now, so why is it important to have to know this? The guy did you a favour by breaking up with you by the sounds of it. You're wallowing in the hows and whys of his breakup techniques and what he chooses to do now as a single guy. I know it doesn't matter, but dropping off your DVDs in person or not is such a non issue. You got them back. Why did you think you needed them personally handed to you? At least you got them back. Some people chuck them out, or damage them first.
Obviously he is having some issues that he needs to work on and you're not helping the situation by reminding him that he's a jerk. Though you're not saying it directly, any time he hears from you or sees you it's making him feel this way. And exes really should be cutting off contact, and so should you from him. How would it be if your next boyfriend found it so important that you be in touch with this guy by remaining on social media sites as contacts and end things in an idyllic way that only you think should be?
In no way am I defending him, but I am more or less wanting you to see that your need to know things or how things are done with an ex now is no longer your concern and you are expending energy in the wrong place now. He's choosing to live his life without you looking at what he's doing, and hopefully he'll give you the same when you move on and meet a much better guy. He's deleted your photo, and that says it all. It's the new age insult now and sends a big message that he no longer wants to be reminded of your relationship, he has other plans. And really, what he does on his page is his business now.
Find your strength to know YOU have power to get on with things that won't include him either and you can start by knowing how to make yourself happy without relying on what or why he's doing something. Hang out with friends and meet a new guy. This one has made it clear it's over. Good luck.1
