Should I make my social media private due to ex?

He ended up blocking me even though I quit talking to him. I was gonna block him but figured I’d stand strong and not do it. This is instagram so it’s not like I can block him back. I feel so powerless so wanted someone’s opinion. Should I make my profile private in case he ever gets the urge to look at my page? Almost like taking the power back? Any opinions? I just feel... dumb. I wish i would have just blocked him first but felt like that would have been too dramatic. Not anymore.

  • It wouldn't be dramatic or wrong. Just not neccesary. I would say just not block them if just for the simple fact that if you decide later that you made the wrong decision, you don't have to be bothered with unblocking them. But if he starts harrassing or stalking you, then yeah, definitely block them

  • This depends on the situation. If you fear him knowing about your life, then make it private. If what you're feeling is more along the lines of anger, resentment or anything other than fear, then leave it as it is. Being able to show that you've moved on with happier pictures is more mature. But as I said before, if you have sincerely fear that he will use those pictures against you and/or find you, and you cannot block him, then make it private. This is coming from someone who has experienced fear of an ex and chose to block on Facebook but keep Instagram open.

    • OOOh yesss I’ve had one of those. No it was just like a pride thing like he had the power cuz he could see mine profile but I couldn’t see his (not that I wanted to)... but think if I put it on private I’ll just stoop to his level and show my true colors. I wanna show him strength and how he’s not on my level. Thanks girlie!!

Have an opinion?

  • Change your name on the profile they won't be able to find you if they tried. You may become friends again but while you are going through the in between stages only you know the answer

    • No I can’t block him back but I’ve decided to leave my profile public still 😊 i need to just let it be and let him be the childish angry one. He blocked me because we broke up. Guess he was angry I cut him off.

  • No you should not

    • I can’t block him if he blocked me. Plus too it’s petty to block someone out of emotion. I’m thinking he did it just to move on (selfish reasons) so whatever can help him do that. Just didn’t like the fact he could see my profile u know.. But I changed my username so I won’t be found if searched.
