Question - (18 April 2009) 6 Answers - (Newest, 18 April 2009)
A female United Kingdom age 30-35, anonymous writes:

Hi, this may sound like a really stupid question, but am a little confused. I was going out with a boy last year and things ended really badly. He finished with me. He has now been in a new relationship for six months. We were friends on facebook however I deleted him last year cos it was a bit hard me seeing him all the time on facebook. We haven't spoken for about seven months but I thought if we give each other space then we can be friends again sometime.

However I have just seen on facebook that he has blocked me. Why would he block me? It's not like I've been harassing him, or sending him messages cos we haven't spoke for seven months. Deleting a friend on facebook is one thing but why would he block? I know this is a stupid question but it's just got me thinking to why he would do that?

A female reader, anonymous, writes (18 April 2009):

You say your relationship with him ended badly some time ago. He is now in a new relationship and you deleted him from your Facebook account anyway.

So tell me: why would he NOT block you, considering all this?

He might not be feeling any animosity toward you at this point, BUT the relationship you and he once had is long finished, and he may see no point in any further contact.

That's as it should be, you know! When a relationship ends (not matter which person ended it) then its finished. No longer in existence, and no reason to keep in touch UNLESS you had been married and have a child between you, that is, in which case there has to be communication from time to time.........

Just forget him now and focus on your own life. Perhaps you will eventually meet a man with whom you're more compatible.

He probably noticed you deleted him and he decided to block you. No big deal. You are over-thinking. Don't waste anymore time on him or thinking about him. Just let it go hun. I've been there too.

DrPsych agony auntHe may have moved on with his life and wants to break communication with you. As you have written, the relationship is over and you stopped seeing him on facebook too. I wouldn't think too deeply about this, facebook is just a social networking site after all! You know in your heart that you haven't harrassed him and you have nothing to be ashamed about. Since you seem upset about his actions, perhaps you still have feelings for this person? In which case it maybe better that you don't have an opportunity to chat with him and open those old wounds.

Well first of all, this is not a stupid question! Secondly well you said things ended badly, maybe it was just that he had blocked you all that time ago while you were both mad at each other (from the break up) and he has just forgot to unblock you. If this is not the reason, sorry and I hope he will unblock you.

samjayne775 agony aunthe might have thought, "why has she deleted me?" which might have made him angry and so he blocked you. He probably felt exactly what you're feeling now. If you have any other way to contact him, try to just talk to him or something. Don't bring up the whole "why did you block me?" thing, just act like you didn't know he blocked you and be cool. try to talk like grown ups and see what happend. If he starts to be an asshole, then ask him what you did for him to want to block you.. all the best. xxx
