Blocking someone on Instagram!

Hi everyone,
I wondered if you can help me. Me and a friend both have insta accounts but neither of us follow each other. Before moving hers from private to public, she has blocked me as clearly she doesn’t want me to look at her account. I have a public account so anyone can see and I know she’s looking at mine.

My Q is she’s blocked me so I’d like to do the same but it won’t let me block her from my account. Anyone know how to do this or get around this?

Thanks in advance 😊

i dont think you are able to block someone if they have already blocked you x

Are you sure this person is your friend? Doesn’t sound very friendly between the two of you.

Yeah that’s what I’ve come to know but it’s weird, why should someone who has blocked you still be able to see your account freely, it’s not really fair is it?

Hi there, yeah your right there. I have posted on another thread about what this all means and what to do as she’s done this “blocking” and then text me as normal the same day asking to meet up and catch up.

I know she’s blocked me as I can still see her account (now public) from my husbands insta account so she purposely blocked me.

Can you not just make your account private so she can't look at it?

Yeah I could but my account is all things beauty, so reviews about products, hair tools and all things skincare so I get comments from the public about products I buy, use & talk about. I don’t post any personal stuff about my family otherwise it would be private.

What? How weird that two friends would want to block each other from Insta? Is hers a personal account or like a blog? If it's the latter and she is a bit of an Instagram wanker on there then I can see why she might not want people she knows seeing it as it can be a bit cringey.

But otherwise it's strange isn't it?

Hi beerflavourednipples, lol that name made me smile

I’ve wrote a thread somewhere else asking for advice. In a nutshell, we’re friends and we’re both on insta. She had a private account for a long time and didn’t accept my request to follow about 2 years ago when I joined. I thought as it’s private, she may have family etc and just left it at that.

She’s now gone public but before she has, she’s blocked me (I don’t even follow her) then she’s text me the same day after blocking acting all normal, we should catch up and meet up, very two faced

She’s done a few other things that are shady and I think I’ve come to the conclusion that she has the good old green eyed monster syndrome as she’s always been envious of my life.

I’m just not sure I can continue being friends with someone who is clearly fake, what didn’t she think I’d find out!? Very strange uncalled for behaviour
