I dated a guy for almost 8 months, it seemed to be going great over all (just a few minor hiccups here and there like most couples getting to know one another) but he broke up with me a little over a week ago out of the blue. He bawled when he did it, saying he had wanted it to work out between us but he didn't see it going anywhere.. He told me he loves me and it wasn't anything I'd done, etc. (I was shocked -We spent time with other's families, he spent a lot of time with my daughter, he even went on vacation with us over the 4th of July!) He asked to hug before I left & he held onto me for a few minutes, crying. This was confusing to me (Why is he weeping?) but I didn't think about it too long, because I had my own crying to do. I rallied my friends & have been relying on them to get through this. I was really in love.
The very next day after he broke up with me, I found he unfollowed me on Instagram.
Two days later, he changed his profile picture on Facebook (it had been a picture of us together). At this point, the hurt and anger started to kick in for me that he broke up with me, so I unfriended him on Facebook and unfollowed him on Instagram. I also just couldn't take seeing his news feed updates, etc.
The next day after that, he deleted all of the pictures of him and me on his Facebook. This is really hurtful as he still has a pic of him and his ex before me on his FB!
Now, a little over a week later, I found out he actually blocked me on Facebook & I cannot for the life of me figure out why!
Our breakup was his choice, and I have not tried to contact him in any way since the breakup.
I just don't understand how in a little over one week, he's gone from "loving me" to completely blocking me out of his life, and I'm hoping someone with a similar experience or some insight can help, especially the guys. Thanks!

Alright well... I am guessing from the responses below you kinda have an idea why he broke up with you, so ill answer the second half, why he blocked you out... its a mixture of guilt, ego and borderline sociopath behavior. You see men, even after breaking up, want a girl to chase them, so when he "unfollowed" you on instagram, he was expecting you to come crawling on your knees and begging him back, you didn't, so he made the next bold move, then you retaliated and so on... he didn't get his way and he just acted like a even bigger dick HOPING he will get the victory tear from you... you are doing the right thing, don't give into his madness... don't contact him, he will make contact... watch the magic happen :)
And a side note/advice- To all the 30+ people, cut the shit with instagrams and fb etc. be more mature, please grow up and end your life on the freakin' internet for the love of god! Those things are for kids! We are grown up enough to hold on to our social circle through personal interaction and a phone. We don't HAVE to post social updates of our daily activity every freakin 5 seconds. What a turn off to see that.0
