Anything can make someone behave irrationally. People behave irrationally more often than they behave rationally. People get into cars and scream when they know they're getting ready to crash. Like, didn't they rationally know that could happen when they got in? They didn't know they were in danger the instant they got into a car?

If people were completely rational the world we live in could not exist.

I have seen one one billionth of everything there is to see and it was all the same.

Seems like a big lie to me, but he has been communicating w/me through other social media. Opinions?
If someone is blocking you on FB and thinks he needs to protect himself from being stalked by you, you are being dumped and/or cheated on (probably cheating if he is still communicating on other media and stringing you along). You have to move on, because whatever he is doing he doesn't even have the integrity to face you and let you know what he is really doing. Don't put your energy into someone who thinks he has to protect himself from his gf "stalking" him. That is the lamest thing I have ever heard. You can do much, much better!!
