I blocked all my exes because I do not want to hear from them again and I do not need them to see my activities nor I want to see their business. It is better to shut them down because once you dumped me or I dumped you, the chapter of us is finished. I cannot be friends with exes especially if I still have lingering feelings. I do not think it is childish. It is my way of healing and moving on.

I'm gonna voice my opinion. Take it how you will. You may or may not talk to your ex once things end between both of you but that doesn't mean they won't always think of you to some degree. It may seem silly to some but I still talk to my ex as a friend because I care about her. I'd rather her be in my life to some degree then completely lose contact with her. Yea it may hurt to see them date other people and you may or may not ever get a chance at their heart again. What makes her happy makes me happy. As long as the guy is treating her the way she is supposed to be treated then everything is good.2

I mean, I did unfriend him immediately after the breakup as I couldn't handle seeing frequent updates on him in the wrecked state I was in at the time. I might've blocked him for a short while too (like ~2 months or something?)
Soon after, I unblocked him for no real reason other than that I felt like I'd reach a state of accepting the shitshow that'd gone down and led to the breakup. He messaged me with a few paragraphs saying that he was really sorry. That he knew he must've hurt me but he'd hope if we could still be friends. (which I kindly declined as I can't see myself being friends with someone who cheated on me but.. it was a nice gesture on his part nonetheless.)1
