The 10 Most Common Reasons Why Your Ex Would Unblock You

Over the years, we’ve studied male psychology very deeply and carefully.

And by looking for some simple behavioral “cues”, you can get a pretty good idea of what he’s actually thinking, and how he feels about you.

Plus, you can take advantage of these cues and make him feel a sudden wave of affection and obsession for you again, using a few simple psychological tricks.

More on this later…

Right now, we are going to share with you the 10 most common reasons why your ex would unblock you on his social media or messenger app.

Regardless of why he blocked you in the first place, it is likely that he unblocked you because of one of these 10 reasons.

You will get some mind-blowing insights into the male mind, plus some clever ways to know what he’s thinking without even talking to him.

Later in this article, we’ll also give you a handy guide on how to easily and smoothly reconnect with your ex, without any fear or awkwardness!

Reason 1: He Wants To Reconnect

This is one of the most common reasons why a guy unblocks you on social media or messenger.

By unblocking you, your ex is opening the door to reconnecting with you again.

Now, he might not reach out to you right away.

In fact, in most cases, the guy will experience a lot of hesitation and doubt.

This is because he’s created an awkward situation for himself: He had decided to block you and cut you out of his life, but now wants to take it back.

He’s just not sure about what to do yet. But rest assured: It’s no coincidence or accident that he’s unblocked you.

The best thing to do in this situation is simply to wait and see how he acts.

If you take action and message him, you might put a lot of pressure on him and push him away once again.

He will also get the impression that you miss him, and you’ve been checking his profile enough to notice that he’s unblocked you.

Don’t let him think this, even if it might be true! You don’t want to come off as desperate or needy.

Instead, simply give him some time to process his own feelings and thoughts. Just sit back, and wait for him to reach out to you again.

Reason 2: He Wants To See Your Profile

As we’ve mentioned above, if a guy has just recently blocked you, there’s a good chance he will reach out to you shortly…

But if he has already unblocked you for a long time, he might have done so just to see your profile.

This is especially likely on social media. In many cases, it allows him to see your posts again.

Some platforms will even allow you to check to see who’s viewed your content, such as Instagram stories.

In his mind, he doesn’t expect you to notice that he’s unblocked you, so he tries to stalk your profile behind your back.

So what should you do?

First of all, don’t get offended or over-react.

You should never directly call him out or ask why he unblocked you. It puts you in a negative light, and just makes you look needy.

Instead, simply change your profile picture to something eye-catching. It’s a clever way to trigger an emotional response in him without reaching out directly.

And if this isn’t enough, share a post with an ambiguous meaning, such as a deep quote or a song lyric.

This will do 2 things:

First, the sense of mystery can spur his curiosity, and make him want to reach out to you.

What’s more, these posts and profile changes give him a convenient excuse to contact you again.

And that’s the key to getting him to chase you again…

Reason 3: He Regrets Blocking You

Another possibility is that your ex unblocked you because he’s overwhelmed with the feeling of regret for blocking you.

He might have been angry, hurt, and resentful when he first broke up with you…

But now that his emotions have simmered down, he wants to take it all back.

If you do want him back, this is a great sign: You’ve managed to pull his heart back to you without even trying!

But don’t get too excited just yet. You do NOT want to seem desperate to get back together.

If your ex is feeling a surge of regret for cutting you off, the best thing to do is to let these emotions grow inside him.

Reaching out to him at this stage will relieve these feelings for him. But if you don’t contact him, these feelings will only grow stronger and stronger.

Eventually, they will bubble up and he will no longer be able to hold them in.

And when this happens, he will have no choice but to reach out to you first, desperate to talk to you again.

It’s a great way to get him to chase you without asking or trying to get him back!

Reason 4: He’s Just Doing It For Your Mutual Friends


It’s quite common for a couple to have mutual friends.

And this can make a breakup particularly awkward for everyone.

So when you’re trying to figure out why your ex unblocked you, you should NOT assume right away that he wants to get back together with you.

Sometimes, he might just be trying to make things a bit less tense between your mutual friends.

Perhaps one of your friends has a party coming up and you’re both invited. Or maybe you’ve both been invited to the same wedding.

If you both arrived at the event on bad terms, there’s a good chance that you will bring some conflict and bitterness into the atmosphere.

In these cases, your ex is likely trying to avoid this by unblocking you to reduce the hostility and friction between him and you.

Reason 5: You’ve Been On His Mind

Here’s an important thing to remember about guys:

They don’t always have control over their thoughts.

Your ex might have moved on, with no intention of getting back together with you…

But despite this, his head might still be filled with thoughts of you.

And in some cases, this will lead him to unblock you just to relieve his curiosity.

Here’s the funny part:

The more he tries to forget about you, the more he will think of you.

This is what we call an “ironic rebound” – If someone tells you not to think of a white bear, you will naturally start thinking of one!

Now, if you do want him back, you can actually take advantage of this and make him obsess over you again.

More on this later…

Reason 6: He Wants Your Attention

Sometimes, a man will unblock you simply because he wants your attention.

Think about it this way:

When we’re in a relationship, we get used to the feeling of attention and care from our partner.

But when the relationship ends, this attention gets taken away suddenly. And it can become quite uncomfortable having this missing from our lives.

If your ex has suddenly unblocked you, there’s a good chance that he is feeling the same way.

Once again, you might be tempted to give him the attention that he craves from you…

But the clever thing to do would be to pretend you don’t notice that he’s unblocked you.

If you give him your attention at this point, he will feel satisfied and stop chasing after you.

Instead, you want him to desire you more and more.

And if he wants to reconnect, you want him to make the first move.

To encourage him to do this, you can use the “peacock” technique.

Simply start making social media posts of you looking attractive, going out with friends and having a good time.

This way, you can “show off” to him from a distance like a peacock, and make him even more intrigued and desperate for your attention.

And soon, he will have no choice but to text you first!

Reason 7: He Is Curious About What’s Happened Ever Since He Blocked You

You might not know it, but curiosity is a huge motivator in how guys think.

Here’s what we mean:

When you were together, you were a big part of his life.

You shared a connection with each other, and knew each other on a deep level.

But this connection was ended once you broke apart and he blocked you.

He is still used to having you around, but suddenly you’re not there anymore.

So naturally, he will be curious to know what you’ve been up to since he blocked you.

When this happens, one of the first things he will do is unblock you.

He might be getting ready to reach out to you with a text to catch up with you. Or perhaps he unblocked you just so he can see your profile again.

Whatever the case may be, curiosity is often a huge factor in how he acts.

And if you do the right thing, you can take advantage of his curiosity and get him to chase you again…

Reason 8: He’s Playing Games

Like it or not, there’s often quite a bit of drama when it comes to breakups.

And sometimes, your ex might come back just to play games with you.

For example, he might have unblocked you just to get you to approach him.

Consider this:

In many cases, your ex will be thinking of you for months after the breakup. And he might want to “push your buttons” to try to get a reaction out of you.

So while he will not text you directly, he might unblock you just so he can see what happens.

He will also do various things to try to get you to reach out to him again.

For example, he might start posting pictures and status updates of himself having fun, and maybe even hanging out with your friends.

When this happens, rest assured that he’s doing it just to get a reaction out of you.

So what should you do?

The best thing you can do is to NOT play along and let him chase you.

You want him to think that you’ve moved on, and that you’re comfortable with who you are now, even though you might secretly want him back.

This will also show him that you’re NOT someone he can control. And if he wants your heart back, he needs to stop playing games, and come to you with honesty and love.

In other words, simply ignore the games he’s playing for now. Pay no attention to his posts, and don’t get emotionally invested in them.

Once he realizes his games are not working, he will become even more frustrated and obsessed with you.

And eventually, he will have no choice but to talk to you directly!

Reason 9: He Just Wants To Discuss Something Logistical

In most long-term, serious relationships, there are many logistical matters to take care of after a breakup.

For example, you might have to sort out living arrangements if you had moved in together. Or perhaps you share a pet and you need to figure out who is going to take care of it.

In these cases, your ex might unblock you just so he can talk about these matters with you.

These issues can get really messy, and it’s normal to feel frustrated or stressed during this time.

But the best thing for you to do is to work through these matters with him in a calm and cooperative way.

Set aside any hurt feelings for now, and deal with logistical matters in a logical way.

This will help him see you in a different light and earn you a lot of respect from him, regardless of how the breakup actually happened.

What’s more, it will also make him appreciate you more if he wants to reconnect again in the future.

Reason 10: He Misses You

Finally, we have one of the most obvious reasons why your ex unblocked you:

He misses you!

When your relationship ends, you two go through one of the most painful experiences of your life.

And it’s completely normal for both of you to be feeling a huge amount of emotional pain and resentment.

But as time goes by, a man will start to feel more and more sentimental towards you. And perhaps even a little nostalgic for the times you had together.

It’s at this point that he will start missing you in his daily life. This is when he will finally end up unblocking you.

And if your ex has done this, there’s a good chance he simply wants to talk to you again and reconnect with you, even if it means being “just friends”…

Of course, if you also want to get back together, this is when you can trigger his obsession and emotional response using a few simple tips.

The RIGHT Way To Reconnect With Your Ex Boyfriend
