Your ex doesn’t want to be constantly reminded of you whenever they log into the dating website.
Blocking your dating profile helps in facilitating this.
They may still be in the process of getting over you.
Whenever they log into the dating website and notice your dating profile, it may trigger feelings in them that they simply don’t want to experience.
They may not have been fully over you by the time that they chose to join a dating website.
Hence, they may not have been fully healed emotionally.
Perhaps they now feel that they have been making better progress in healing from that past relationship ever since they joined the dating website.
However, whenever they see your dating profile, it may put a damper on their recovery attempts.
The sight of your dating profile may be triggering memories about their relationship with you.
They may not want this. Even if some of those memories may be good.
Your ex knows that if they were to have any kind of memories about you continually triggered in their minds, they simply will never be able to completely get over you.
Initially, they may have felt that they could handle the fact that you are on the same dating website that they are on.
When they first noticed your dating profile, they may have felt an initial sense of anxiety but soon let it go and moved on.
Perhaps they just told themselves that they would just pretend that they didn’t just see your dating profile on the same dating website that they are on.
However, every time that they log into the dating website, they may be constantly seeing your dating profile.
When your ex does a search, your dating profile may constantly appear at the top of their search results.
The dating website may also be constantly sending your dating profile to your ex as a match.
Your ex may even have friends who are using the same dating website that have noticed your dating profile.
Those friends may be constantly telling your ex that they saw you on the dating website.
Despite your ex’s attempts to ignore the fact that they saw your dating profile on the same dating website that they are on, they are unable to avoid it and continuously hear about you from friends.
Hence, in order to stop this and get some kind of control over the situation, your ex blocks your dating profile.
It may have been simply too much for your ex to handle.
They may have felt that they had no choice but to block you if they were going to be able to get past all this noise and move on with their lives.
Your ex may know that as long as they continuously see your dating profile or hear about you from friends, they may risk allowing themselves to start thinking about the possibility of getting back into a relationship with you.
Your ex may not want to allow this to happen because they may have already been there in the past.
When the relationship first ended, they may have been hopeful about the possibility of getting back together.
However, when you didn’t reach out to make that happen, they may have been really disappointed.
Your ex may not want to allow themselves to be that hopeful again.
Hence, your ex blocked your dating profile so that they never allow their thoughts to get the best of them again.
