Here are a few reasons why you blocked you.


19 Reasons why a guy would block you

1. You made him mad

Did you two engage in a big fight, did you insult him and hurt his feelings, well there you have it. That’s probably the reason why he blocked you. 

Most times people react in anger, so he probably blocked you because you made him mad. He is blocking you to gain a clearer perspective, but he could also be using it as a revenge tactic to make you come begging.

2. He has an insecure girlfriend

If he is just your friend then the reason he blocked you may be because of his girlfriend. She may be extremely jealous, and he does not want to hurt her feelings.

His girlfriend may feel threatened by your continuous friendship, so he may block you so that there would be peace in his relationship.

3. You are being too clingy

Another reason a guy may block you is that he feels that you are doing too much and he doesn’t know how to tell you. You may be calling him too much, liking & commenting on almost all his pictures all the time. 

Sometimes you even stalk him on social media, well your clinginess may just be too much for him to handle so he simply chooses to block you instead.

4. He likes you way too much

Let’s assume he is just your friend, well he may block you because he sees you as more than a friend and does not know how to handle such feelings. 

It may also be that you are his ex and he still has feelings for you, so he chooses to block you to protect himself. His blocking you is a way to reduce the temptation to always check up on you.

5. He no longer has feelings for you

Another important reason why he blocked you may be because he no longer has feelings for you, so he sees no reason not to block you. Well if you still have feelings for him this is his clear way of making a statement that he is over you and that you should move on.

Move on sis.

6. He is confused

If he is confused about his feelings for you he may choose to block you. He may not be sure of your intentions towards him. So he chooses to block you to enable him to focus and prioritize his feelings towards you, especially if you both keep going back and forth. 

7. He does not see you in a romantic light

Assuming you let him know that you are into him romantically and he doesn’t feel the same way. He may resort to blocking you to avoid the awkwardness that may follow. Also, he may block you to prevent you from stalking him.

8. He is waiting for you to apologise

If you guys had a huge fight and you were the person at fault, he may be holding out for you to apologise to him, so he blocked you so that you may get the memo that you hurt his feelings, so you can apologise to him.

9. He wants to move on

If your guys just ended your relationship, and it was not on a good note, he may block you so he may be able to move on. He may not want any reminder of the past relationship you guys shared, or it may be that he still has feelings for you and blocking you is the only way to get over his feelings.

10. He needs space

He may need time to get hold of himself and his emotions. Being around you in any way at all is going to affect him. So blocking you, is his way of taking out the time he needs for himself for his emotional well being.

11. He reacted spontaneously

Well his blocking may also be a result of how he was feeling at that particular time, he may just be reacting to the jealousy or anger he felt at that particular time.

12. He didn’t do it intentionally

Try to call him and find out from him if he blocked you. It may be that he wasn’t even aware that he blocked you, and might have been an unconscious move.

Although, you should have in mind that blocking someone is not a mistake because blocking someone takes some steps, so he may just be using it as an excuse.

13. He is trying to retain control

Another reason why he blocked you may be that he feels as if he has lost control in the relationship and he feels that blocking you would give him back the control he seems to have lost. He feels that blocking you would leave you wondering what you did wrong and come back with apologies.

Well if he does this it simply means he is a narcissist and he just wants to manipulate you.

14. He doesn’t want any reminder of you

He has someone he is dating but already he is catching some feelings for you. He may have blocked you because he cares too much.

He doesn’t want the feelings to grow, and any reminder of you around him. So blocking you on social media may be another way for him to move and forget about you.

15. He still cares about you

He may be angry but that does not mean he doesn’t care about you, he won’t be mad at you if he doesn’t have feelings for you, he cares too much. That is why he is trying to avoid seeing anything that has to do with you.

16. He just  wanted a fling

Well there you have it, he may not have had any real feelings for you. He just wanted to use you, and he succeeded so now he has moved on. If such happens you should forget about him and stop thinking about why he blocked you.

17. You intimidate him

Some guys are intimidated by strong and independent women and maybe he is one of such people. Your independence may scare him and he does not know how to handle it. He is used to women needing him so he is unsure of how to proceed with a woman that does not want anything from him.

18. He is trying to get your attention

A guy may block you because he feels that the only way to get your attention is by trying to get you to talk to him or reach out to him. This is the only way he could think you do so. Such a person can be considered childish though.

19. He wants to hurt you

Another reason he could have blocked you is that he knows that doing so will hurt you, and that is exactly what he wants to do. He may be doing this to make you feel guilty for something you didn’t even do in the first place.

If he is the kind of person that plays games with people’s feelings then you most certainly do not want him in your life. Good riddance to bad rubbish

What to do when he blocks you.

After checking out all the possible scenarios why he blocked you, it is time to see what you can do about the fact that he blocked you. 

After blocking you, do not try to stalk him or call him or even text him. This is because doing so will aggravate the issue, or you may just succeed in getting him to unblock you and make things more awkward.

When he blocks you never try to reach out to him, don’t think about trying to find out the reasons for his actions because this will only make you look desperate. Show him that blocking you is his loss, not yours. Let him see you are independent and do not need him.

Or another option is to give him enough space and time before reaching out. You may give him time to sort out his feelings and at the same time, you can work on sorting yours out too.

You need to get him to miss you then you can reach out to him and try to find out what went wrong. But let’s be real for a moment you can give him all the time he needs and you may not get the feedback you want.

If he is not the right person for you, the right person can still find that person that will treat you like the princess you are and live the fairy tale life you deserve.

Why would a guy that likes you, block you?

A guy may block you if he likes you because he is confused about how he feels and he is trying to get a hold of his feelings. His blocking you may be a way to regroup.
