The pandemic brought about an unanticipated and almost unbelievable wave of change in our lives. Some accepted it and went with the flow, while the others not so much. The unprecedented number of deaths also meant that almost all of us lost someone we liked, admired, or loved to the virus. At this point, there’s much argument if the survivors are the fortunate ones or those who got away at the “beginning of the end,” as conspiracy theorists like to call it. Some think this is the beginning of destruction, and humans will suffer from the havoc and disbalance they’ve wrecked.
Well, we don’t know about the changes that were unconsciously triggered by the pandemic, which might affect our lives. However, we know how much this confinement affected the economy, overall mental morale, environment, fashion, workplaces, schools, fitness, and lifestyle.
The economies of some countries went down by more than just a mile while others soared. Mental illness diagnoses hiked up around the world. Depression, ADHD, autism, anxiety, stress, BPD, and EDs slowly emerged as people spent more time with themselves and began understanding the root of their everyday problems.
Fashion was yet another important aspect of the pandemic. One of the things Gen Z gave plenty of time during the lockdown was fashion. Luxury loungewear and athleisure were preferred, while clubbing dresses were a close second.
Humans are nothing if not adaptable; we fixed what didn’t work and implemented what did until we could function without contact. Think about it; even now, post the pandemic, contact, networking, engagement, and socialization is a big part of our lives. So, how did we manage to accomplish this feat?
Skype is one of the most famous apps for video conferencing, and it became one of the most used apps during the pandemic. Workplaces, schools, coaching, AA groups, and even friends and family relied heavily on Zoom and Skype for scheduled video chats.
In today’s blog, we’ll discuss if you can send a message to a user who has blocked you on Skype.
Can I Send Message to Someone Who Blocked Me on Skype?
Let’s move on to your initial question first, and only because there’s not much to discuss here. Can you send a message to a user who’s already blocked you? Well, no, not really.
The blocking feature has one primary function: sever any contact between the blocker and the blocked. So, it would defeat the entire purpose, won’t you agree?
Don’t worry; Skype is a large platform that cannot afford to display discrimination among its users. So, similarly, anyone you’ve blocked won’t be able to send you a message either.
If you wish to contact someone who has blocked you on Skype, we’d say that will be relatively easy for you. This is because very few people meet on Skype; there’s always some other point of contact that leads them there, right?
So, just reach out to them on whichever platform you met. In fact, don’t hesitate to go to their house as well, if the situation allows it.
However, if you’re aware that it was your mistake and they need time to deal with that, it’s best to give them some space. If you choose to harass them in a vulnerable moment, you’ll only end up making things worse for yourself, don’t you think?
If they were meant to be your friend, we’re sure they’ll come back. However, if they decide not to do so, it’s best to respect their decision rather than try to talk them out. They might listen to you then or for a few more weeks, but their true desire to be away from you will shine through sooner or later.
So, let us now discuss how you can block a user on Skype. It’s important to know this process, especially as a new user. We often encounter unpleasant people on the internet, and it’s best to quickly shut them down rather than tolerate them.
Here’s how to block someone on Skype (PC/laptop)
Step 1: Go to Skype, and you’ll automatically go to your Chats page.
Step 2: Locate and click on your chats with the user you wish to block.
Step 3: At the top of the chat, tap on their username.
Step 4: Scroll down to the bottom. You’ll see three options: Chat settings, Delete contact, and Block contact.
Tap on the last option, and you’ll be good to go.
In the end
As our blog has now reached its end, let’s quickly rehash what we’ve discussed here.
Besides other stellar features, one thing Skype takes seriously is its users’ privacy, and it won’t do anything that might result in issues. So, if someone blocks you on Skype, you won’t be able to contact them.
However, this goes both ways. So, they also won’t be able to contact you when you’ve blocked them. Fair deal, don’t you think? If you need this, we’ve also laid down the steps for blocking a particularly unwanted user on Skype.
If someone has blocked you on Skype, act according to the situation; one can usually tell if the other person wants to be approached. If they do, then shower them with meaningful apologies and giant gestures. But if they don’t, leaving them alone is probably for the best, don’t you think?
