Is there any way I can block my girlfriend from seeing my posts on Facebook? She is very curious about everything I do online, which annoys me.
Facebook offers a number of tools that enable you to control privacy settings extensively. Spend a little time reading them. Also, try telling your girlfriend how you feel.
We began dating in 2008, but it was an on-and-off relationship because we lived in different cities. We used to visit each other every now and again though, until I caught him cheating on me. He said he loved me a lot, but mentioned that I was taller than him and he wanted to marry someone shorter, whom he had found. I was furious, obviously, and left him in 2010. He tried reaching out to me, but I asked him to move on. He then contacted me in 2015, after breaking up with the girl he had moved in with, and we met for two weeks before breaking up again. I sent him a gift later, which he refused, saying he assumed I had moved on too. My relationship with him has been like this ever since, with these ups and downs. Do we still stand a chance? I love him so much.

If the two of you really care about each other as much as you claim to, you would have done something about it by now. It’s been a decade of flip-flops, which betrays the inability of either of you to commit. My advice is that you meet and have a chat, putting all your cards on the table to figure out if he feels the same way. If he does, take a more concrete step towards trying to be together. Life is short. Don’t let this drag on for another decade because, if he doesn’t feel the same way, you owe yourself a chance of happiness with someone else. Also, on a different note, I have to point out that the excuse of leaving someone for a shorter person sounds bizarre.
