I really wanna block this guy i was seeing but i feel like its immature. He ghosted me and would manipulate me and make me feel special and then gone again and come back again. Always like that. And i found out he lied to me about so many things. I want to block him but i feel like it is sooooo immature what should i do?

Yes it is immature because blocking someone does not block any feeling you have for them, it magnifies it. This is because you are unable to contact the blocked person which leaves you alone with your thoughts and without closure. The most mature thing you can do is to do nothing, if he pops up in a couple of weeks be civil but treat him like he should be treated - an untrustworthy stranger.

I have never blocked someone before but everybody I spoke to said i should block him and that is the right thing to do. So now im confused.... should i speak to him about it or just ignore or block.... its confusing and i dont want him to think that im just one immature ass *****

if you think he may have ghosted you for no reason then yeah going for it would be the best idea but if you have done something wrong i wouldn't recommend doing anything just see if he trys to pop up in your DM's any time soon hope this helps!

he may have ghosted her for a reason though so youre basically telling her to disacknowlage him for no reason

Try to speak to him and if he does not communicate with you it is him being immature. Blocking does not work, if you want to talk to someone using the block button does not take this away this feeling.

If you're blocking them purely because they're ghosting you, then yes that's immature. They are not obligated to be in contact with you and you are not entitled to responses from them. Blocking someone just because they've cut contact, or not replied is childish.

Blocking them because you don't want them in your life is a different matter. If someone has lied to you, hurt you, etc. then blocking them is more justified. That said, blocking people is a modern solution to an old problem. Normally, when you don't want to have contact with someone you just ignore them. You don't have to go out of your way to block them. If they contact you again, tell them you don't want them to message you any more. Blocking is really just a way to get around the problem rather than deal with it.

I found out he lied to me. Not long ago. We were living together for like 3 months or a lil less. He would say hes studying but he went out and make out with another girl and stuff. (So many more) he disappointed me so many times too and everytime i wanna talk abt something serious he would ignore and come back with something else. He knew he hurt me yet he exploited me and took advantage of me bc i cant mad. So idk what to do really

As before, if you don't want this person in your life then block them. Or stop responding to them.

no lol. They already ghosted you so doesn't make a difference.

I usually block people like that so I don't have to see their name or face on my news feed etc. Sometimes I unblock them in the future when I don't care about them.

Blocking helps the pain

a bit pointless since he doesnt even care about you to begin with but try it and see if it makes you at least kinda satisfied. or leave him mental texts.
