In this video Brad Browning, author of the ‘Ex Factor’ talks about what to do if your ex blocks you on Facebook. A painful thing to go through but you can deal with it. Here’s how.
Think about WHY your ex has blocked you.
Painful as it is, your ex probably doesn't want any contact with you right now. He also might not want you having access to seeing what he is up to on social media. This doesn't automatically mean that he has met another girl, and some people just do this as a knee jerk reaction because they don’t want to see you - even if your ex was the one who finished things with you, sometimes, we just can’t help ourselves from looking at what our ex is up to.
But do not contact your ex in a panic and ask ‘why have you blocked me?’ as you take away your power and begin to look needy. You may also walk right into a trap that your ex has set for you to see if you are watching him.
Try and think about the positive of being blocked.
Your ex has blocked you right? This means that one day soon they might unblock you. You can see when this happens, and this is a powerful indicator that you were on your ex’s mind.
On the same note, if your ex blocks you it could be because they are having a hard time getting over the breakup too and they just don’t want to see what you are up to right now and blocking you is the only way that they will feel that they can stop that urge to just ‘look’ at you.
Don’t acknowledge to anyone that your ex has blocked you.
Do NOT call or text your ex and ask why, and don’t talk to mutual friends, or even your own friends about it. Act like you haven't even noticed, and get on with living your own life. This takes the power away from your ex and you are much more likely to get his attention if you handle things in that way.
Try and get your ex to hang out with you on a casual basis.
If you have mutual friends, why not ask them to hang out and bring your ex along. Make out like you want to be friends now. Let your ex think you’re over him. He much more likely going to agree to come out if other people are involved than meet you alone. Then, just be relaxed, ask how their life is going, but don't talk about the breakup. He is much more likely going to then feel safe to reestablish further contact with you and hopefully that will include unblocking you on Facebook!
