A lot of people block to get over an ex. It stops any drunk texts etc etc. When that person is over the ex then they can unblock because if the ex wants to get in touch it wont hurt or affect them in any way. I have done this in the past. It was purely to protect me and my feelings and to give me space to put the relationship in the firm past. Once that was done I was happy to unblock and if the ex wanted to get in touch I would have been fine with it. Don't read too much into unblocking or blocking just get on with your life.
They want to see if you will make contact.
It's up to you, block and delete if you don't want further contact or they will get in touch when they realise you have unblocked. You decide what you want to happen.
They can't play any games unless you let them and give them a reaction.
You say that you had a great relationship but also that it was toxic. Both can't be true can they?
I'd concentrate on moving on and stop checking on them on social media.
Split from my ex about 12 months ago, we had a great relationship but it was a little bit toxic at times. During the year we’ve been apart we have both struggled a little bit and had weak moments where we’ve got in touch with each other again, semi-entertained the idea of getting back together. Each time we realise that it’s not going to work and block each other on all social media and messaging platforms. Last time we got in touch was only about a month ago and we decided that going no contact was the best way for us. However, I was on WhatsApp the other day and scrolled through my archived chats and noticed that I’ve been unblocked again by my ex. Why is this? Why have I been unblocked again? Are they playing games?
