Reducing and reusing does NOT help your love life.
We’ve all done it once or twice (or 32 times according to my blocklist).
Unsolicited or not, blocking someone’s number is like an unspoken right of passage into the dating/hookup world. It hasn’t gotten messy or uncomfortable enough until you’ve had to cut them off completely.
Side note: blocking someone is harsh but unfollowing them on Insta? There’s no going back.
At some point you’re going to start talking to someone that can barely hold up their end of the conversation. It's inevitable. When that happens, putting in effort just won’t be worth your time.
I used to be able to put up with the "wyd?" texts, but now, I literally don't even try anymore. That's a huge indication that they're dry as shit. So BLOCK.
Or, maybe you’ll be hooking up with someone and things will get weird. There’s a lack of chemistry, it’s awkward, and the sex isn’t that great.
Personally, the awkward after period isn't something I wanna face if it's avoidable with the simple press of a button. I will happily let that messy hookup memory follow him to my blocklist and stay there.
It’s the ultimate power move, and in some cases, completely necessary.
P.S. Blocking your ex is most definitely one of these cases.
Block them, delete their number, unfollow on all social platforms, and for the sake of your sanity, don’t look back.
If you’re reminiscing over the great times you had with your ex then get out there and find someone else who can give you more. After all, there’s a reason why you guys didn’t work out the first time.
