  • Did they completely deactivate it? Or just block you?

    I can imagine ditching it for a clean break, especially if they were only on it for you. Or maybe they see too much of you and it's too painful?

    • I second this.

    • Nope didn't block me
      Tried to search the fb on my other secret account and couldnt find him

  • He probably needs space to get over the break up so he doesn't want to be bothered or stalked , no offense but you did say you tried looking him up , so he is probably just grieving over the loss

    • But we still talk over normal text and he contacts me to ask how im going and all. And he also contact me to hang out to movies... is he really over me?

    • Show All
    • Usually when someone breaks up with someone it's because they don't want to be tied down or they met someone else or they have their eye on someone else , but in your case it just seems like he likes having u as a friend

    • Maybe he realized he was gay , I honestly don't know what his intentions r but just think it's weird that you guys broke up and he stills hangs out with you

  • Possibly he didn’t want to be asked on social media about the break up. Also possible he doesn’t want to see you or pictures of you doing things and doesn’t want to stalk you or be apart of it until he’s personally over you completely before seeing you on Facebook again. Could have wanted to change his life over all and felt Facebook was a negative part to that. There are guys that don’t have Facebook at all so it’s not that weird. I’ve deactivated an account on after a break up as it was a convenient time to change.

      Does it seem like he needs space from me/trying to move on?

  • So they can't be stalked and/or they don't have to see reminders of things or people related to their exes.

  • It can either be one of many things: social desperation in terms of attention (unlikely), social overload, or as a way to disconnect from seeing any social connections to their ex. This can also be instigated by the factor that they had the account for their Ex, but this outlook is situational

  • Too many people have their lives laid out on Facebook nowadays. It isn't reality and sometimes its needed to just step away from all the bullshit drama. There could be many reasons why this action has been taken.

  • There are a lot of stalkers, exes that want to sow destruction in friendships, and some people just don't want contact with that ex anymore. Although that's generally done through blocking and not deleting.

  • They usually do that shit coz they r not aware of the features or stuff offered by Facebook, like blocking and muting. So in order to avoid potential chance of contact they simply deactivate their accounts.

  • Because they want to escape socialization with people that definitely or probably will trigger memories with their previously significant other and those memories may trigger negative feelings.

  • Ignorance is bliss. Sometimes, the friends of the ex attack hardcore and really bully the dude for a while. It sucks. It is easier to go off the grid for a few weeks and let the dust settle.

  • It could be because of other reasons in their life, but if it's strictly because of the breakup.. Maybe attention? Or not wanting people to message them about the breakup, Not wanting to see the other persons posts.

  • Well, it's hard to say. Maybe because of the break up they feel a little down about other people, and want a break from them. Maybe they're just being sullen, or maybe just afraid that somebody else is going to let them down again. You can't really know for sure.

  • I did. because i can't stop stalking him and his female friends on Facebook. I needed a hard stop and I knew he would never check mine, too pathetic.
    That didn't s5op me from contacting him, because I missed him too much... Eventually I had to delete his number...

  • Did they block you? I didn't deactivate mine but I went off and haven't logged in in 5 weeks.

    They say 90% of people stalk their exes on social media and I didn't want to do that. Because I know I will.. I don't want to "see" my ex in groups or look at his page, so I'm taking a break to help me move on.
