Are you wondering if you should block your ex on social media but are unable to decide?
It’s a good question, and some people would say to simply block the ex and be done with it.
Here are the reasons why blocking them is a good idea but also why in some other cases you probably shouldn't do it.
Your heart is broken, and you’ve added another ex to your roster of past loves. However, you would be willing to give the ex and the relationship another try if they approached you and at least promised to work on the things that broke you apart the last time.
Clicking unfollow is so easy but waking up the next day and not seeing his Instagram stories, his Facebook posts, and realizing that unfriending him will affect your life in a great way is a whole other ball game.
When you break up, it’s crucial to see as little of your ex’s public information as possible.
We've all been there and nothing can ruin a day like seeing an Instagram story of them at your favorite restaurant eating your favorite food. Social media can be a constant reminder of past relationships, we live in the time of social media, and your ex is everywhere.
Millennials would probably agree that the social media breakup is the final speed bump you hit after you end a relationship. Remaining connected to an ex-partners social media platforms has been likened to a situation where you leave a window open in your house so as to peek in on festivities happening in a neighboring mansion, where you're not welcome in. Sometimes, blocking them on social media is the best way to go. After all, the absence is said to make the heart grow fonder. And realistically, not everyone actually ends up hating their exes.
The necessity of blocking an ex varies from case to case. If you are the kind of person who spends a lot of time on social media, limiting yourself from the ex is a good thing, and blocking them could be the way to do it.
You might block your ex in order to move on to prove to a new love that he/she is part of your past. In the end, there are other, better ways to rebuild a broken relationship instead of outright blocking the ex.
Not blocking your ex, in this case, leaves the door open, and tells your ex that you’re not bitter enough to cut all communication and that maybe, things can be worked out. The decision to or not to block an ex doesn’t have to be about pride or trying to look unfazed.
Reacting out of anger or frustration is the best way to make a wrong decision that’s only going to make you feel good for a few seconds. And after that, you’ll feel overwhelming sensations of regret, anger and dissatisfaction with your decision that will haunt you for a long time.
We all know what it's like to stalk exes on social media, and it almost always results in feeling bad, they are your ex for a reason and it's time to move on.
Do you keep following them, and if so, do you still have to like all their pictures or watching their stories?
If so, think twice before block your ex.
