Can you instead tell yourself that this was a mutually unsatisfying experience for both of you instead of taking it personally? It sounds like you were okay being done with him until you realized he’s on the same page. Sometimes in dating or with job hunting, I’d notice that even if I didn’t want to date the person or want the job, I’d feel rejected even if we were all actually on the same page. Maybe you feel rejected right now and that’s opening up some old wounds.

As for the blocking, IDK. I’ve blocked people over things I’m sure others would find stupid. As a freshman in college, I was hooking up with a guy and eventually wanted more. He did not. I was upset and felt embarrassed for being upset, so I blocked the guy. I once had a friend fade out our friendship and one day I noticed she’d unfollowed me on IG, so I blocked her. I’ve blocked some exes. I once noticed an ex blocked me on a platform neither of us followed one another on 2+ years out from our breakup. About a month ago, I blocked my sister on my phone/Apple products because she sometimes curses me out over text and I’m done with that. Needless to say, I’m a big fan of blocking and when I do so, it’s a reflection of my internal world and attempt to find inner peace and not much more.
