Don’t Be a Cock Block

I have heard heavy use and misuse of the word cock block.  Although widely used when she wants to protect her friend by getting her home safe, that doesn’t make her the blocker.  A cock block is something that is done intentionally to prevent another from getting acquainted with a potential partner.  There are real ways in which you can become a cock block and these include some of the following scenarios.

  • Interference in Conversation. You see your friend chatting it up with someone neither of you know.  You stroll over and openly interfere in the conversation or pull your friend away.  Ask your friend about it later, don’t walk up in the middle of an already began conversation.
  1. MEN: When this is a guy that is intruding he uses some half-drunken slur or uncool pick up line that may make his friend and him look bad, any previous conversation becomes obsolete.
  2. LADIES: When this is a woman she usually moves into a conversation she wasn’t invited into.  You know if your girlfriend feels threatened by the conversation she will look at you and let you know.  Don’t just perceive she needs help when she doesn’t.
  •  Roommate Interference.  If you roommate brings a new dating partner over, whether its to watch a movie or just hang out, make like a tree to your room.  They are trying to get to know one another and don’t need any sort of unwanted interference at this stage.
  •  Sly Interference.  This is when you are alone with your friends new partner.  You talk bad about them or happen to mention something that is not the most alluring thing about them.  You should always try to stay positive about the information you give off about someone else.  So what if they have some imperfections.  We all do, and yours might just be interfering with someone else’s new relationship.
  •  The Hottest Friend Interference.  Yes, we all know you are the best looking in the group. That doesn’t mean that someone else isn’t getting sweet on another member of the group.  Try not to use your looks or electric personality to interfere with someone a friend is talking to.  You might be the alpha “dog” in the group, but other members in the group don’t need you to dominate the scenario they’re trying solo.  Play it cool by sitting this one out.

Interfering with a friend getting to know the person they are dating is tacky and not being a very good friend.  Accidental interference should stop a certain age for all of us.  Most blocking comes out of insecurities in ourselves.  Be respectful and play fair.
