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.
Have you blocked your ex? Why and why not? If not, do you still talk to them? Why? How did it go?

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 unfriended the girl i was recently dating on snapchat, but still follow all her other social media stuff. She sent me snaps on accident of her having fun, and just random ones, my snapchat is for closer friends, not everybody. Probably would be healthiest to delete her off of all of my social media stuff though honestly, i still check her pages sometimes though i try not to1
To avoid them1
its wise step1
Totally agree. Yeah, and I've been told it was immature to block or not be friends. No way.1
the best goodbye is to never look back. if you are in to never meet/date/think again.1
That's my way too1

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

I haven't blocked any of them, because I feel no need. I'm not in any contact with them. If they want to stalk my life on social media, it's their choice. I have moved on ages ago.2
His new wife and I are very good friends. I introduced them.1
I always block and delete everything. Much like you I don't think they need to know what's going on in my life or what I'm doing.1
i blocked them but then unblocked. I like the no hate atmosphere. Right now I talk to two exs and its fine. Sort of becoming friends.1
I have only blocked my big ex. He tried to get back together despite me telling him that I'm dating someone else. Couldn't take no for an answer, so I blocked him.1
I delete/block them while I am in my healing process.. because i have no control at not looking at their page etc. however , I unblock when i feel i have healed.. some I actually become friends with later on.. others don't bother me anymore.. and one is still blocked.1
I only have one, and haven't blocked him. Even though I don't miss a moment from that relationship, I don't think he deserves to be hated. We don't talk to each other since I broke it off. But no block was put on. But some of my friends had done that, if the other person doesn't respect your decision1
I'm still friend with one of them, and I'm in good term with the other but we don't talk1
I'd probably just unfriend them1
I blocked my exes and it felt much better not knowing what he was doing and who he was doing it with1
I have one x and I'm still friends with him.1
I've only blocked an ex once, only because he kept annoying me to hook up one last time. The rest of my exes (which have only been like five), I'm friends with. Not immediately after the break up tho. Some of them blocked me. Some I unfriended but didn't block. But we all eventually ended up being friends. Not close. But a simple hello when we see each other in public (I live in a small town). I have them on my social media accounts and we like each other's posts and stuff but that's it. No hanging out or anything1
I only block my exes if my exes blocked me.1
Just the recent ones or the ones who keep harassing me. I'll be a friend but I won't be here for them to play with1
