Don't Cock Block!

As a HIGH SOCIETY MAN you will inevitably find yourself in a situation where the object of your desire is also the object of another man’s. The key thing to remember here is that a HIGH SOCIETY MAN never deliberately salts another man’s game.

Cock Blocking, as most of you know, describes the behavior of people who intentionally inject themselves in the middle of another’s courting ritual. Cock blocking reminds me of NBA centers trying to keep the other team from grabbing a rebound. CB'ers use every annoying move they can think of, from getting in the sight-line, walking between the enamored, making an attention-getting ruckus, or what I call the "snatch and grab."

Competition is good. If you can't win without cheating, you don’t deserve to win. Shit-talking and backstabbing are for “little girls!”

Cock Block Backfires

Despite your best efforts, you'll probably be thwarted if you try to cock block. A twist of fate frequently causes the target of your interest to become VERY interested in the person who just got blocked. Understandably, the woman wonders why it was so important for you and/or others to volunteer something negative about the "blockee." Your attempts at cock blocking have made that person ever so intriguing.

Let's take an example. In an attempt to block another guy, you say “That dude's a player.” Many women will consider that as a challenge to convert the blockee's philandering ways. Calling him a player convinces her that he must be good in bed, challenging, spontaneous, and great fun. Your cock blocking only pushed the guy closer to the desired woman. You've unwittingly just fanned the fire of women's competitive nature!

The "I was helping her" Cock Block

Another form of cock blocking is the “Save my friend” or “Capt. Save-a-Ho” cock block. This is the one when your friend, because she FZ’d you, likes some douchebag, and, to induce her to leave the situation, you diss him. It’s guaranteed that any of your attempts to save her will only make her want him more. Why, you ask? Because he ain’t you! Just because you like her does not mean she reciprocates. I'm not saying that you can’t express your distrust about the another guy. However, spare the details. Don’t give her the bullet points. You'll be considered petty, especially if she suspects you're into her. Remember, negativity just is not sexy or classy.

Don’t confuse cock blocking with protecting your friend from the unwanted attentions of a creepy pick-up-artist. If some jerk is hitting on a lady, and she obviously doesn't want to be bothered by him, do rescue her. My friends let me know when to intervene by displaying the "save me" look or asking one of their wing women to tell me what's going on. Be careful with this one, and use your good judgment. Sometimes there's a fine line between protection and cock blocking.

Don't be A Cock Block

Bottom line is cock blocking is just lazy, so don’t do it.
