He keeps messaging, telling me that he can't get over me. That not a day goes by that he doesn't think about me. I don't reply but every so often he'll send a message.
I feel bad. Maybe I should block him on Facebook so he is never reminded of me and can't see my profile?

Before blocking him, let him know how you feel about it. He's being needy about you and can't get over the past, but you've moved on. And, if he continues to bother you in this fashion, you warn him (gently or firmly, depending on your style/the situation) about the consequences (ie. blocking him on social media). I understand that you may be concerned about his feelings, but you need to also take a look at what you want from your existing relationship/friendship with him. He's being unreasonable by trying to make you feel bad for him and is trying to get you to talk to him for his sake and is not thinking about how you feel about it, especially if he's just talking about himself. In fact, that may be an effective way to check if he respects your feelings on the matter, by asking him if he cares about your feelings on the matter too. Because, if someone respects your decisions/feelings on a matter, then they will give you some space. Besides, it's futile to meet someone's needs like that, when they don't consider your own priorities. Ain't nobody got time for that.
