You first have to determine why you would want to delete and block this person.
You shouldn’t want to act too brashly because you are filled with emotion.
This is the mistake people often make in your situation.
They are full of emotion and decide that they will delete or block someone as a reaction to how they are feeling.
The right time to delete and block someone is dependent on how long it takes you to become emotionally balanced and thereby have the emotional fortitude to determine whether this is the right course of action to take.
Are you simply tired of this person and no longer want them in your life?
Are you unhappy at this person and how they have been treating you?
Are you trying to move on to the next phase of your life and you don’t want this person in it?
Are you trying to show this person that you have moved on and they now no longer mean anything to you?
What is it?
You really have to determine what your reasoning is before you make a move to delete and block someone.
If you are simply tired or bored of this person, you may be better off considering why that is.
Have you been the one taking a step back and leaving all of the work in the hands of this person?
Have you tried to make the relationship fun by suggesting what else you can do as an activity instead of always leaving it in this person’s hands?
Perhaps you have some blame for this boring interaction.
Perhaps this is where you start.
You start contributing to the fun and take some of that responsibility away from the other person.
If you are unhappy at how this person has been treating you, you may want to consider if there is normally a pattern of this.
If you are constantly dating or talking to prospects that treat you disrespectfully or show a lack of affection, you may want to start changing the kinds of people you tend to date.
Perhaps you shouldn’t fall for the initial sense of chemistry or attraction.
Perhaps you should begin to give these relationships some time in order to determine how you are going to be treated before jumping right into them.
If you are trying to move on to the next phase of your life and you don’t want this person in it, what phase is that?
Do you even know?
Do you even know what you want out of life?
You have to be able to determine where you want to go in life.
If you are merely living your life in the hopes that a new relationship can help you determine where you want to go, you are living life in a very weak and directionless manner.
Your relationships shouldn’t determine the phases of your life.
You are the one who should determine that independently.
A relationship should add to your life, not fulfill it.
If you are trying to show this person that you have moved on and they no longer mean anything to you, this is untrue.
After all, you are acting this brashly in thinking about deleting and blocking this person because you do care and obviously haven’t moved on.
This is where you have to come to terms with your own emotions and be honest.
You will not necessarily get over this person by deleting and blocking them.
You get over them by moving forward with your life in a positive way.
The right time to delete and block someone is when you do so nonchalantly.
There was no anger or negativity when you did it.
You just did it because it was time to move on.
