What Does It Mean When A Guy Blocks You?


Guys are complicated creatures. They have a way of knocking a girl right off her feet and then leaving her cold and alone. Just when she gets used to the cold, he walks right back up and offers her a warm fire. It’s so confusing that girls are typically left with their heads spinning trying to keep up with his latest mood.

One of a guy’s favorite moves to knock a girl off balance is the cold shoulder. They like to pretend that women are the complicated ones that play mind games, but guys have an entire playbook of them and women hate mind games. Also, if a woman is thinking of giving a guy the cold shoulder, it’s normally because he did something idiotic. A guy just does it to see what happens and to force you into being the submissive one. At least that’s what it always seems like.

In order to figure out why guys decide to give a girl the cold shoulder, or block her suddenly, I went out and asked a few guys to explain their odd behavior. Hopefully this will help us to understand what is going on in their minds so that we aren’t so damn confused anymore. Here are the responses I got:

1. He got what he wanted from you and doesn’t care to see you anymore. This is well-known as the old hump ‘n dump. If a guy is only after one thing and he gets it, he has no use for you anymore. That is, unless a time comes around that he wants to get it again and then he’ll suddenly come back around.

2. He is no longer interested and doesn’t want you digging around in his business. There is normally a confrontation of some sort before this happens like a break-up, or an argument. Or maybe you know he was just cheating on your best friend and he doesn’t want that info leaking.

3. He is confused about his own emotions and is taking a break from you to figure them out. This is okay because it is better for you if he figures them out before getting you involved in any way. There is nothing worse than getting with a guy and then figuring out that he isn’t sure about his own intentions. He could also be really into you and confused about his reactions to you.

4. He needs space and time to think. In order to have that quiet moment, he took you out of the picture. This is not necessarily a bad thing. He could be trying to figure out if he’s ready to propose, or if his head is in-line with his heart.

5. He is following bad advice to try and get you to miss him and realize your feelings for him. This is one of those mind games that men pull. Why not just ask you how you feel about him? No one really knows. But this is one of his go-to moves to have you eating out of the palm of his hand. It’s the old trick of calling you every day and then waiting you out to see if you’ll go to him.

6. He is trying to prove a point to you. Yes, it’s yet another mind game. Perhaps you disagreed with something he said and he is now trying to get the point across that if you don’t agree with him, he won’t like you. Blocking you is his way of shutting you out until you beg. Don’t beg.

7. He disagreed with you about something and doesn’t know how to talk to you about it, so he just cut off communication instead. This is pretty childish, but we have all done it in one way or another at some point. The blocking will probably only be temporary since the two of you will eventually forget about the whole disagreement.

8. He is tired of seeing your status updates about your meals, your workouts, and everything else that you are doing. Some people prefer simplicity and constant updates clog their feeds. Don’t take it personally; just shrug it off and move on.

If you get the sudden cold shoulder from a guy, at least you’ll have a few ideas about what could be causing the odd behavior. Just figure out if he’s worth it to you to go through the trouble of deciphering his reasons and getting him back. If he’s not, then just let it go and move on with your life. If you think he’s playing mind games, run in the other direction because he sucks and you don’t want to deal with that in your life. If you like him and think he’s worth it, then just ask him what’s up. It’s the easiest thing to do.

If He Likes Me Why Did He Block Me

There are many reasons why a guy might like you and still block you. If you are dating someone or seem like you might be about to date someone, he might have given up. He doesn’t want to see posts or photos of you with your potential boyfriend.

It is also entirely possible that he got tired of waiting. If he told you that he liked you more than a few weeks ago, he may have expected an answer of some sort before now. Before long, he became tired of waiting around to see if you would date him or ever like him back. Instead of remaining heartbroken forever, he has decided to move on.

There is also a chance that he is angry at you for some reason. Did you recently get into an argument? Did you do something to hurt his feelings? He may have blocked you because he is upset. He could still like you, but he just does not want to talk to you at the moment.

If a guy thinks that there is no potential relationship with you, he may block you and move on. It isn’t fair for him to wait around forever, so he may just give up and try to move on with his life.

Why Did He Block Me for No Reason

You know that you did not offend him. You never got into an argument or did anything wrong. So why did he block you for no reason? Unfortunately, you may never know the real answer to this.

While you cannot know the reason why, he does. There is no clear reason from your side of the equation, but he definitely had a reason for blocking you. He may be trying to “ghost” you, or he may have been tired of waiting for a relationship that wasn’t going to happen. Perhaps he found a new crush that he is about to start dating and didn’t want to tell you that. Whatever the case, he probably has a reason for blocking you.

If you don’t think that you did anything wrong, then you probably didn’t. Whatever his reason is, it is entirely his choice and not a reflection on you at all. His reason may be unfair, but you will never get to ask him about it now because he blocked you. If he never talked to you about the reason and just blocked you, this is a good sign that you should just move on—he either does not want a relationship or he isn’t emotionally ready for a relationship right now.

When a Guy Blocks You on WhatsApp

There are a few common reasons for why a guy might block you on WhatsApp. When a guy blocks you on WhatsApp, it generally means that he is not interested in a relationship or he is upset for some reason. If you know that you did nothing to offend him or make him angry, then take this as a sign that he does not want to pursue the relationship further and move on.

Some of the most common reasons for when a guy blocks you on WhatsApp include:

– He wanted something more from your relationship than he is currently getting.
– He has a new girlfriend or someone who he thinks is about to be his girlfriend.
– He is upset, angry or offended about something.
– He was too cowardly to tell you that he wasn’t interested anymore.
– He wanted a casual fling, but he realized that you wanted more out of the relationship.
– He is tired of messaging you for whatever reason.

Again, the one thing that you know for sure is that you should move on. Even if he gets over his reason for blocking you, blocking someone is not what emotionally mature people do in a relationship.

Why Would a Guy Block You on Facebook

The meaning behind a guy blocking you on Facebook depends a lot on your current relationship. Did you just break up? Were you just flirting a bit and he suddenly disappeared? Are you only friends?

If you just broke up, then he probably blocked you so that he no longer has to see your photos or be tempted to message you again. He wants to move on, and this is the best way that he can think of to heal and show you that it is really over.

If you are currently in a relationship, he may have blocked you because he is angry after a fight or wants to break up. He may also be afraid of where the relationship is heading. If you just started dating, he may have realized that the relationship was going to be more serious than he meant it to be, so he wants to avoid committing anymore.

If he was just a friend, then it is most likely that he was angry or he has a girlfriend who doesn’t want him to message you. It is also possible that he wanted to be more than just friends. When he realized that you were only interested in friendship, he decided to save himself the heartache and move on.

He Blocked Me on His Phone

If he blocked you on his phone, it definitely means that he does not want to talk to you again—at least, not in the near future. Before you try to figure out why he blocked you, remember to respect his boundaries. Blocking you is a clear sign that he does not want to talk, so don’t try to force him to.

A guy can block you on his phone for a number of different reasons. He may be a coward and wanted to break up without having to actually tell you. He could just be upset about something. Perhaps he realized that you only wanted friendship and decided to move on. Whatever the reason, the one thing that you know for sure is that he is done talking. For the moment, all you can do is respect his need for space and stop talking to him.

Blocking you can happen because a guy needs space. He may not want to hurt himself anymore by talking to you, or he may be afraid of hurting you by blowing up after a break up. In some cases, guys will even block someone to hurt or manipulate her. He may want to show that he has the power and make you crawl back to him. Don’t give him the satisfaction.

Why Did He Block Me on Everything?

You thought that he may have just needed space when you noticed that you were blocked on Facebook. Then, you noticed that he blocked you on everything. What does he mean by this and what should you do about it?

Whatever his reasons are, a guy clearly does not want to talk if he blocked you on everything. He went out of his way to block you on each social media account, app and phone. The best thing you can do is avoid talking to him. He clearly does not want to talk and needs his space, so respect that boundary.

If a guy blocks you on everything, it is unlikely that he wants a relationship. It may be his way of breaking things off or showing you that he doesn’t want to pursue a relationship. He could be angry at you, but he could also just be tired of talking when he doesn’t want your conversations to lead to anything. Whatever the case, his actions are a sign that you should just forget about him and move on.

  2. I met this guy on tagged a dating site apps. We used to be a girlfriend/boyfriend. I found him he was a good guy,have respect like hes beyond perfect. We vcall and chat everyday. And one i fall inlove with him and he also. He told me he has a depression,and hes struggling about it,and he told me that he was from a 10yrs relationship and this year january the woman left him,without any information where he can find. I know the depresrion that he feels is for the 10yrs relationship. He stopped talking to me,and after a week he came back and its because i love him so i continued talking to him,until this time again this week,monday he didnt reply me only seen in my message,and seeing him online and never replied to me. The next day,i tried to call him and send him a message and then after that he blocked me in all social media.. I dont know if he would comeback again. Im willing to wait how long,. I need some advise or what you think.. Please thanks

    • I would just leave him alone for now. He may have realized that he was not ready for a relationship, or he may have discovered he was too afraid that his heart would just get broken again. After such a traumatic breakup, it could be months or longer before he feels ready to move on. If you do plan on waiting for him, expect it to potentially take a while. Good luck, Angie!

  3. I have been dating this guy for 3 months. He was everything I wanted and he said the same of me. He had been busy with work recently, so we haven’t been in contact or seen each other in a month. Few days ago, I found out he has blocked my number not only on WhatsApp, but my number from calling. I have given him space, and probably just texted once a week to check in, in which he did not respond to. He doesn’t seem like a guy who would do this. What should I do?

    • Something in his life influenced him to block you. There may have been another person in his life. Regardless of the reason, he is no longer interested in maintaining a relationship with you at this time. Determine what you want for your future without him, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. You will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, Karlie!

  4. I was in no contact mode with my ex for 3 years – he broke up with me but never really broke up with me…so I had to guess it was over and call him to ask. That’s how low the break up was, getting past it was hard – took years but during the 3 years no contact, he constantly kept texting and would occasionally call and leave voicemails – I never replied. One day I cracked, after 3 years I texted him and we started talking – right away he was calling, messaging. He also told me he wanted to see me and he still thought about us being intimate and wanted it. After about 2/3 months randomly messaging, talking and some teasing…I was beginning to wonder if he had changed , if this was our second try…to be honest I never stopped loving him and I knew that’s where i always got caught – I cared and he always used that. Anyway, one day we got carried away, video chatted…after that, messages got less frequent but if if he did message it was straight to the point he wanted to meet in person, he wanted sex. I was considering it because I was getting drawn back. One day he texted me, I went to check it and realized he blocked me on whatsapp – I messaged on fb messenger “blocked?” He read that then I guess blocked my messages there too – I can see his profile but messages aren’t delivered. I wanted to test it, called and went straight to voicemail – he blocked me on everything. After 3 years of him trying to get me to talk to him, I relied and then outta the blue he blocks? Is it a power thing – now he’s the one not talking to me ? Is it revenge ? I don’t get it because it did hurt a little , too – I knew it was playing with fire to respond and I wish I never did but why do I feel sad about this? Will he come back around – is this thing just a game?

    • He blocked you years ago. He decided to block you again. He is no longer interested in maintaining a relationship with you. If he reaches out to you in the future, then do not respond to him. Determine what you want for your future without him, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. Have a great day, Emma!

  5. Did no contact with my ex after he ended the relationship – I did no contact for 3 years but during that 3 years, he kept texting , called occasionally , left voicemails. I ignored them all because when we broke up it was so hard on me – he had already moved on and basically started to ghost at the end. We never had a real break up, he was just way less accessible or reachable and it was just pain for me to go through. I always thought about him though, wondered if we took another shot if he would be different, if we would make it work but time went by after 3 years I was finally able to be happy, I didn’t cry every day anymore and my life – I rebuilt it and it was amazing. 3 years no replying to him and then I cracked….I messaged and he messaged right away. We talked on the phone. He told me he still thinks about us, wanted to see me but I drew the line at talking. Just texts after that, barely anything other than him reminiscing about our intimate moments, me admitting I remembered. About 3 months went by, one night we vid chatted , it turned a little intimate. After that, his messages were just straight to the point – when could he see me for real , when were we gonna hook up etc. Then barely any communication, a random text or two , a meme…then one day I texted to see if he’d reply – he did but it was very to the point, he wanted to hook up. When I went to read his message, realized I was blocked on whatsapp – sent a message on fb to say I was “confused – hot one day then blocked?” He read it and ignored message there…also blocked on his phone because calls go straight to voicemail.
    I was the one not responding as quickly or too busy for him this time ..but we were opening up that connection and he knew he was wearing me down. I don’t understand why he would block like this ? Esp after all the years of my silence and him trying …is it revenge? Just to get to me ? Why do I feel upset over it 🙁

    • He blocked you years ago. He decided to block you again. He is no longer interested in maintaining a relationship with you. If he reaches out to you in the future, then do not respond to him. Determine what you want for your future without him, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. Have a great day, Emma!
