Why did he block me? If you’re staying up at night wondering this, here are 6 reasons you need to know about why he removed you from his life.
7 Reasons why he blocked you
Here are some common reasons why guys would block you on social media and even on every form of communication:
1. He’s just not that interested
Ugh! I know. This can be super hard to accept, but, it’s the harsh truth! Sometimes, guys block you because they’re simply not that interested in you and don’t want to move things forward.
But you know what? That’s okay! There are millions of guys out there that ARE interested in you and would literally fight to be your boyfriend. Trust me!!
So if you think he’s blocked you because he lost interest in you, don’t reach out to him again. Let him go, sis! This way, the right guy can come into your life.

2. He’s going through something in his life
I think we’ve all been through phases in our lives where we isolate ourselves and cut contact with everyone in our lives because we simply don’t have the energy to talk.
If he’s been going through a challenging time in his life, he might not have the emotional capacity to maintain a healthy relationship with you.
ufff. I know. It’s tough. But for him, blocking you was probably the easiest way for him to let you know that he needed space.
he might reach out in the future. He might not. In the meantime, live your life and continue dating other guys. Don’t wait for him.
3. He has an avoidant attachment style
If he’s been hurt in the past (cheated on or abandoned by people he’s close with), he may have an avoidant attachment style when it comes to dating.
When he senses the relationship is getting serious, he tries to run away because he’s scared of getting hurt again. So, in this case, blocking you doesn’t mean he hates you. Instead, he’s avoiding developing stronger feelings for you.
4. He’s hiding something from you
Okay, this one is probably quite rare. But it still happens.
Sometimes, guys block you because they’re hiding something from you. Maybe he already has a wife/baby mama/girlfriend, but has been talking to you behind their back!
Or, it could be that he realizes he’s gay and doesn’t want to lead you on! LOL! Who knows?
Either way, it doesn’t matter what he’s hiding from you. If he blocked you, he blocked you!! I know it’s tempting to want to seek closure. But it’s often better to just move on and forget him.

5. You came on too strong
If he isn’t ready for a committed relationship, yet you’re trying to move the relationship onto a deeper level, he might block you and find another girl who doesn’t mind settling for situationships.
To be honest, I think when you’re with a guy who genuinely wants you, there’s no such thing as being too emotionally available or ‘coming on too strong’
But when you’re dating a guy who’s afraid of commitment, he can chicken out as soon as he finds out that the relationship is getting serious.
6. Seeing you hurts him
Okay, this one is different.
If you broke up with him due to reasons such as long distance, disapproval from parents, or other circumstances, he might block you after the relationship ends because seeing you hurts him.
This is so sad. But it happens.
In this case, blocking you helps him heal from the breakup faster. Imagine, if he’s seeing your face every day on social media, how will he ever move on? His heart will break every time he sees you!! So yea, don’t pressure him to unblock you. Let him do what he needs to do to mend his heart.

If he likes me why did he block me?
If you’ve been talking to this amazing guy for a while and he suddenly blocks you out of nowhere, it can be super confusing and heartbreaking! And you’re probably asking yourself, “wasn’t he interested in me? why did he block me?”
Well, there could be many different explanations for his behavior. But I think the most common one is that he’s confused about his feelings and needs space.
Our feelings change ALL the time. Sometimes, we fall head-over-heels in love with someone just to find out that we’re not a good fit for the other person.
Don’t get me wrong, he could still have feelings for you. But maybe he just doesn’t see a future with you and is confused about what to do. And if he’s not good at communication, blocking you is often the easiest way for him to tell you that he needs space.

He blocked me and it hurts
Girl, I totally get it! I remember being blocked by a guy that I thought was interested in me, and it HURT LIKE HELL!
I was shocked, confused, and BAMBOOZLED, lol! Now I can laugh about it with no problem, but trust me, I was crying my eyes out when I first found out.
So if you’re hurting right now, don’t feel the need to suppress your emotions. Let yourself FEEL everything. Cry, shout, and scream! Let those emotions out. You’ll feel so much better afterward.
Plus, time heals. One of my favorite sayings is “this too shall pass” No matter how terrible your situation is right now, things will always get better eventually.
Also, rejection is God’s protection! If he blocked you, then that means he probably doesn’t want you in your life. So let him leave! He wouldn’t have treated you right anyways if he stayed.
If he blocks you, he loves you? Is this true?
Hmmm. I wouldn’t say this is true, but I also wouldn’t say this is false. It depends.
Okay, let’s say you went on one date with this guy you met on Tinder and he blocks you ASAP after the date is over, do you think he loves you?
Probably not!! It probably just meant that the date didn’t go well, and he doesn’t want to see you again.
BUT! If you’ve been dating your boyfriend for years and had to break up because your parents didn’t support the relationship. Then there’s a much higher chance that your ex blocked you because he’s still in love with you, but it just hurts too much to see your face on social media.

How do you react when a guy blocks you?
I can’t tell you how to react, but I can give you some tips on how to deal with the situation so that you don’t OVER react and regret it later.
- Take some time to process what just happened: If you realize that he blocked you, don’t react right away! Your emotions are probably super high at the moment, and you might do things you regret later on.
- Decide whether it’s worth reaching out to them: If you don’t even like the guy that much, it’s definitely not worth trying to contact him. And even if you do like the guy, reaching out to his family & friends to get a hold of him can still seem a bit desperate.
- Let your emotions out: Being blocked by someone you like is probably the worst feeling on earth. It sucks!! So don’t try to pretend that you’re okay when you’re not. Let your emotions out. Cry, hit the wall, scream, and do whatever you need to do to feel better.
- Try your best to heal and let go: I know, healing when you’re still hurting can seem impossible. But trust me, as time goes on, the pain will start to subside, and you’ll be able to move on.

Is it childish to block someone?
Well, it depends!
In many cases, blocking someone can actually mean that you love yourself and respect your boundaries. For example, if someone has been causing you chaos and emotional distress, blocking them is often good for your mental health.
But, if you’ve been dating or seeing someone for a long time, and suddenly block them out of nowhere without giving them an explanation, it could be a bit disrespectful and inconsiderate.
If you respect that person, you should at least tell them why you’re blocking them beforehand. Or else, they’d be left heartbroken and without any closure.
