Avoiding a Block…From the Cock

We’ve all met them. They’re annoying, obnoxious,  have the potential to ruin your night.. and of course induce a wicked case of blue balls. That’s right, I’m talking about cock blocks, and they come in many forms. Some are crazy exes, some are siblings, some are friends or friends of the person you’re trying to hook up with. So how exactly do you tell a cock block to back off?  It’s not a simple task considering most cock blocks are people who are close to you…

So if the person threatening your mojo is a friend, then you have no other option but to approach them.  It’s a tough job but it’s the right job.  Often times friends don’t realize what they’re doing. With a little bit of your help, they can stop. For example, your buddy think he’s messing around by cracking a joke about you having a small wee wee…however what he’s really doing is dropping your one night stand potential faster than BP’s stock on earth day.  If you let him know that his jokes are ruining your sex life then he’ll most likely stop and also feel pretty bad too.

When dealing with a  sibling or family member, you’ll need to handle the situation a little differently.  Usually a deeper conversation will provide the right setting to discuss their affect on your social and love life. Remember, family is usually the most understanding people you have, so a simple explanation may be all it takes.  If you happen to be dealing with an over-protective sibling, reassure them that you never put yourself in vulnerable situations.  Provide them details such as how you carry pepper spray and also go out in crowds.  If you can assure them that you’re smart about your actions, they’ll usually back off.  It always helps to make them feel a little sorry for you too.

Listen Bro, I know I’m your sister and you love me but I always go out with a large group of people who never leave each other by themselves.  Plus, all the good guys out there who you would approve me seeing, are generally not looking to date a girl who carries a webcam on her necklace so that her brother can monitor her in real time”

Then there’s the situation were you don’t even know the cock blocker… which can make things a little more complicated. If it’s a friend of your partners, insist that they approach them. Who knows how long the behavior will continue, and most of the time it’s because the person doesn’t realize they’re getting in the middle of something. If it’s some random a-hole at the bar who for some reason can’t take the hint, then you have several options before you call them out.  Make sure calling an unknown a-hole out at the bar is your last option because as we all know, a cock blocking a-hole will usually start a fight in attempt to solidify their status.

Your first option is to try to move yourself and the person you’re flirting with away from the cock blocker in action.  A good way to initiate the move is by asking them if they want to grab a drink at the bar or go outside and get some fresh air.  You’ll also get the chance to move to a more private area which is always a good situation.

Your other option is to point out to the girl or guy you’re flirting with how big of an a-hole the cock blocker is acting.  This will instantly disassociate yourself with the cock blocker’s antics and also knock you up one spot above them in overall status.  You can even begin to joke about how immature the cock blocker is acting and use it as a bonding experience.  Just be careful that this unknown cock blocker doesn’t end up being the best friend of the girl/guy that you’re talking to.  That’s usually when things tend to backfire.
