A girl blocked you, huh? And now you’re left wondering what to do? No doubt that has to hurt a little. Waking up and seeing you can no longer access her content, when yesterday everything was peachy keen, definitely has a certain sting factor to it. But we are here to let you know that it’s all going to be okay. Before you start freaking out and sending her messages that you may regret, there is a few different things that you should consider.
Ask Yourself Why
Think long and hard about the past few days leading up to her blocking you. You want to put on your detective pants real quick and start by retracing your digital footprint with her. What was the last conversation you had with her like? Did she seem upset by anything? Did you say something that you maybe shouldn’t have? It’s important to consider these types of things so that you can get to the bottom of this mystery. Finding where it all stemmed from gives you the best chance and repairing the relationship between you.
You will also want to think about what platform she blocked you on.
Snapchat: She may have blocked you on Snapchat because she doesn’t want you to see something she posted. Usually when someone blocks you on Snapchat it’s only temporary. They can take the block filter off anytime they’d like or leave it on as long as they want, without actually removing you from their friend list. This is usually done to certain individuals if the user feels like the content might upset them or if they are trying to keep their snaps during that time more private.
Facebook: When it comes to Facebook there are two different types of blocking mechanisms. Users have the option to block only messages from their friends, while still keeping them on their friends list. You will discover this if you have tried to message her on Messenger and your messages are denied by the autobot. Users can also choose to fully block their friends, which will not only block messages, but will also remove you from their friends list and prevent you from even finding their profiles again.
Instagram: Instagram offers the feature of removing someone from viewing your profile. She may deleted you off of here if you are leaving too many comments or if she no longer wants you viewing her content.
Phone: If she blocks you on the phone it means that you may have offended her in some way. She’s not playing around. Blocking you from texting/calling her is the worst case scenario.
Reasons She May Have Blocked You
- You have offended her somehow: Think back- Did you say something to her that may not have been okay to say? Have you teased or taunted her recently? Did you do something to embarrass her? These are all reasons why she may have blocked you.
- You post content she doesn’t like: We all unfollow feeds that bother us. Maybe the two of you don’t share similar political views and she finally had enough. Maybe your content is inappropriate or reaches out to an opposite audience.
- She’s playing hard to get: It sounds strange, but it’s entirely possible that she is playing games with you. She may want to see how you react to her blocking or removing you. She may test you to see if you will find another way to communicate with her. If so, she’s ultimately measuring how much effort you are willing to put in to talk with her. It’s not the nicest thing to do, but some girls will do it.
- She has a boyfriend: She may be taken by someone else. Either her or her boyfriend may not like you trying to start conversation with her or liking /commenting on her stuff. They may have felt it necessary to remove you entirely.
- She’s just not that into you: Oftentimes women will block someone because they are simply not interested in the advances you have been making on her.
What Should You Do Next?
Now that you have had a chance to think about why she may have blocked you, it’s time to think about the next steps you can take.
- Whatever you do, don’t be a creep: Coming on too strongly after she has blocked you will most likely just push her further away. Don’t blow up her phone if she blocks you on social.media and vice versa. Be patient.
- Try to reach out another way: The best thing you can do is to simply reach out to her in some other way. This will be impossible if she has blocked you on every platform. However, if she hasn’t, go ahead and write an appropriate message asking her why she felt it necessary to block you.
- Use good grammar: Besides using proper sentence structure, try to keep the message short and to the point. Feel free to express you are hurt by her blocking you, but do not make her feel bad for it! Acting resentful is a good way of turning her off of you.
- Make your case: Tell her that you are sorry for whatever you may have done, especially if she tells you that you’ve offended her. Give her a couple reasons as to why she should continue to keep you unblocked. However, don’t get pushy with her.
Remember the time rules: Send your message and wait. Wait up to 24 hours. If she doesn’t respond by then, it’s okay to send one more text when the day is up. If she doesn’t respond after the second message, it’s safe to say all hope is lost between the two of you.
