Why do people block their exes on social media?

I broke up with my ex because I thought he didn't care about me ( he never communicated his feelings) But recently I seen he blocked me on Facebook. Is he being spiteful?

  • geee, i love it how girls are the ones that always wonder why the other half blocked them on social media.
    It's like "it's a just a break-up, why is he so childish, life goes on, we can stay friends, maybe in 20 years time we look back at it and have a laugh". what?
    that poor sap imagined that in 20 years time you will be at your children's graduation and you two will look back at how your children grew up and high five each other.


    this kind of questions, plus my added experience of seeing relationships around me falling apart, make me believe (personal opinion, so fuck off) ... that girls get over way faster or invest in a relationship in a different way compared to guys.

    There's this girl that I had a huge crush on, but I did not make a move, as I had some other things on my mind... She eventually started dating some dude, while still trying to get to me. I only found that later.
    we kind of lost touch for a year and now it happened for us to start working together. she is still with that guy, but she started to act like back in the day when she was single and trying to get me.
    So the only explanation is: the relationship she has with that guy is just a conjuncture relationship, a disposable one, that she will have no problem ending out of the blue if she feels like it.
    Why she got in that in the first place? to prove herself, to prove to others, because "serious girls" are in a relationship and you get to post on social media and people validate you (?)
    on the other hand guys tend to not care about the pressure of having a relationship. So when I personally like someone enough to get in a relationship with that person, then that relationship is not just to pass the time.

    • and one more thing. when a break-up of this sort happens, it's even more important for the girl to hear that the guy has blocked them on social media because the idiot is still in love.
      it adds up to the infatuation

    • agree with you. you guys take more time thinking about
      "do i want to be with her really? "
      while girls are like "oh he's cute. i like this, that, that trait in him. i want to be with him" and starts to plan the future after 2 weeks of meeting
      👆
      not everyone is like this, but it takes effort to get rid off this false thinking

  • did you ask what he feels?

    you can hurt a guy a lot when you shout the "you don't care about me" into his face when he actually do cares about you!
    you just might not notice the ways he shows he cares.

    usually people block the other when pissed off, sad, annoyed

  • Some do it for themselves to avoid checking up on the ex. Some do it to hide what they're doing now, such as seeing another person shortly after the relationship. Other times they might be pissed and want you out so they block.
    Varies. Most common is anger blocking (in my experience). I've only had one ex block me, but numerous girls who I never dated unfriended me or blocked, because of hurt feelings one way or another.

    • Yep... That's it. Hit the nail right on the head.

  • Some are some aren't my wife left me about 5 months ago and I got rid of her on all social media. Yes I have hatred for my racing was I loved her and seeing her on my page everyday paying me plus you was cheating on me and seeing her with another dude paying me more so not all guys or girls are assholes when they do it

  • There's lots of reasons to block an ex some examples are it's easier to move on, You want nothing to do with an ex, They can't start trouble with you online, They can't spy on your online activities and you can't use their online activities against you.

  • The reasons could be many.. such as he remembers u each time he looks to your profile and it's a sad memory... he is trying to for get you but he can't... he found a new love so he wanted to delete anything related to his past. in all ways you should care dear because you who broke up with him. focus on your future and move on.

    • Interesting! I've moved on plenty times without having to block somebody because i was already checked out

    • This is not rocket science, really. You broke up -> you have the upper hand. He was the one who had no saying in the thing -> so he cuts the problem out of his life. So what?

    • Uh I cut myself out lol but I understand

  • To try and move on. No reason to keep in touch with you if it didn't end too well

  • I think it's because they honestly still have feelings for them and it gets really difficult for them to move on if they see them every day.

    It's definitely spiteful in your case since you're the one who broke up with him.

    • I doubt it's 'definitely spiteful' as it could just as easily be that it's painful to see someone you still care for getting on with their life without you, dating other people etc.

      Guys have feelings too.
