I Forgot How It’s Like To Get Cockblocked

I went to Cafe Citron with The Rookie on a recent Thursday night. It used to be one of the only Latin spots in the city, always packed with sweaty, aggressive Central American dudes, but so many new salsa spots have opened that it was barely half full this time.

There were three girls dancing in a tight circle near us, definitely the hottest ones there.

“I’m trying to think of my line,” Rookie said.

“Doesn’t matter, it’s a suicide mission right now. One girl won’t just stop dancing with her friends to talk to you.” I thought about it for a second and added, “A dancing approach could work.”

“I’ll just wait until one goes to the bathroom.”

“Or goes to the bar.”

One went to the bar. She was closest to me so I made a move. I tap tapped her on the shoulder. She turned around. “Excuse me but your salsa dancing seems like it’s from Colombia.”

“Why do you think that?”

“Just the movements. That’s how Colombian people dance to salsa.” I was making this up of course.

“No actually I’m from Brazil.”

Living in Brazil for six months has given me an automatic two minute conversation with B girls in the States, because they’re mildly curious about the where and why of my time there. I told this girl a few sentences in Portuguese and she’s smiling and asking me light questions, but I noticed her body was angled towards the bar, as if she wanted to walk away. To gauge her interest I said, “Sorry I didn’t mean to stop you on your way to getting a drink.” She was totally free to leave at that point without being rude. Instead she said, “No that’s fine.” I was getting ready to buckle down when her two friends simultaneously pulled her away from me in a coordinated attack.

I went back to my spot and was trying to understand the emotions I was feeling. It was a mixture of disappointment, annoyance, and confusion. Why would those girls do that? Didn’t they see she was having a nice conversation with a non-creepy guy? It’s not like I was trying to lead her to another part of the bar. I didn’t even start touching her yet.

It’s true I’ve been cockblocked in South America, but usually when doing throwaway approaches on the street or when talking to a girl who had a boyfriend I failed to spot. It has been about 14 months since getting assaulted with a cockblock of this caliber. Standing there with my warm Corona beer, I tried to remember back to when this used to be a common occurrence.

An hour later came closing time and the lights got brighter. I was walking out with the Rookie when he spotted the Brazilian leaving with her group. “I’ll try again,” I said.

I reapproached her in Portuguese. Before I could even finish my sentence, a new female friend wrapped her arm around her and led her away.

“Wow that was rude,” I said to the new cockblocker.

I don’t remember the exact words, but there were a couple tense back and forths where she told me to fuck off while I told her that her that she has no class.

We were out on the sidewalk so I expected a white knight to “save” her and get in my face, but I forgot that Latino men are not as pussified as American betas. One came up to me and said, “Stop talking to that bitch.” He probably got cockblocked by her earlier.

It’s been too long that I’ve gotten into an argument with a cockblocker, so my attack was not as strong as I would’ve liked (she definitely wasn’t about to cry and seemed to get a kick out of our little street battle). And then it hit me—I actually had a scripted counterattack to this problem.

If you get cockblocked by a girl, you need to respond by shaking her core so hard that she hesitates doing it ever again, like a mouse who hits the wrong lever and gets the shit zapped out of him. No jokes and no wit—you gotta get dirty.

This is what you must say to the cockblocker. Say it with a stern tone, like a parent scolding a child.

“Did you really just do that? I’m being friendly and respectful to your friend and you rudely interrupt. Did your parents teach you to be anti-social like that?”

Then shake your head and turn your back on her. Don’t engage her in a conversation or even act like you hear her response. She no longer exists.

It had to have been bad if I started an anti-cockblocking movement, and while from a sociological perspective it’s interesting how cockblocking is a cultural phenomenon, I’m ready to destroy the next ugly bitch that interrupts me while I’m talking to a girl that is obviously considering having this hairiness on top of her in the throes of passion.

Ireland had some pretty harsh cockblockers. Those Irish girls moved in packs. Once, 2 girls got ripped away from my friend and I by the group leader. This was when I saw the best response to cock blocking ever. My friend grabbed a pint of Fat Frog, a green drink they make, and without hesitation threw the entire pint directly into her face. I saw it in slow motion.

The cockblocker went at you with all the fire of a stereotypical Puerto Rican from the Bronx. I don’t think she would have backed down unless you punched her in the face. She was that aggressive.

That’s not going to do anything. There is no penalty in the current shit USA culture for inappropriate female behavior, the say and do whatever with impunity.

Let’s also add in that fact that women do not go to clubs to meet men. They go to clubs to hang out with their gaggle of girlfriends and tell guys to fuck off. I am quite certain that Brazilian girl got off every time one of her friends dragged her away from you. Being mean gives females an orgasm. When will you learn?

I’ll bet you are thinking of getting your ass back to Brazil right about now. You’d be wise to do so.

@7 Although it’s tempting to escape to a country with less cockblocking, I think it’s useful to learn how to better deflect cockblockers in the future, as you’ll encounter them in other situations when you’re not after pussy. There are inconsiderate people everywhere.

I think that I would try my best to briefly engage the cockblocker(s), even with a wave or a handshake(or cheek kiss), just to further show them that I’m not a ‘creep’ only after one thing.

The problem is that in many cases it’s true that these girls just go out to ‘have fun with eachother’ and reject men, and sometimes you just have to tell a girl that she’s being antisocial and rude and hope it makes a difference in the future.

There is an instant reaction from the lonely females that says “don’t let my friend get laid because i’m not getting laid.” It’s an odd occurrence. Essentially what they are doing is subconsciously stating their inferiority to their lady friend. Because if a person is strong enough in their presence they’d be happy to let their friend ham it out with the suitor themselves. But that’s not how women think. They don’t want to be alone in that bar and perceived as “not wanted”; so much so that they’d rather keep their friends alone.

It’s sad. But that’s how human beings work.

Women are getting bad. I have noticed a downward progression of the behavior of women just in the past year. Girls today say and do things that have no merit.

Last night I was walking home from having a drink with my friend when I saw some girls walking to a new bar. I politely called over to them. “hey guys, whats up?”

“Fuck off”

“Excuse me”

One of them approached me and got in my face and starting cussing me out about something. I am livid. I tell her how rude she is and that I was making small talk. At this point, her friend is trying to pull her away from me and my friend is trying to stop a fight but I refused to back down from a stupid slutty bitch. I tell her to walk away or hit me so I can give her the backhand slap across the face she deserves.

Eventually, her friend pulled her away as she screamed and cussed at me simply because I said hi. I smiled at her, trying to keep my cool.

I was extremely aggravated over this unwarranted attack on me. What is happening to women? I seriously think I need to start doing day game. Why are women downtown when all they want to do is reject men?

Ugly girls have game because they get to sit on the sideline and examine there hot friends relationships. They observe game in action all the time from an objective perspective (cuz there not getting hit on there friend is). As a result they edit the right from wrong guys out of there friends life. PUA guys cant complain about cockblockers because your trying to run game on someone and then turn around and get mad cuz there friend didnt let you work there magic on them. In reality everytime a pua gets cockblocked the cockblocker actually saved there friend from being a statistic! You cant be mad at that!

Why do you think that anti-cockblocking line is so great? It’s pretty fucking lame. How is that going to put an end to cockblocking?
Here’s how you end cockblocking: Don’t look like a creepy, hairy, scummy, d-bag.

It is never anybody else’s fault if you get rejected it is always your fault! Something you are doing isnt right. Your job is to figure out what that is and correct it. Nobody owes you anything nobody has to say hi to you nobody has to be nice to you. Respect is earned not given and if people dont respect you its your own damn fault! Figure out what your doing wrong and fix it!

it’s because a lot of them just are not happy. from infancy they were sold some feminist/progressive/self-esteem enhancing load of crap; told that they were special unique flowers that would have it all. then they grow up and get into the real world and begin to see that you cannot actually have your cake and eat it too. that makes some of them angry.

Lol Anonymous.. 90% of the time cock blocking has nothing to do with what you look like.

Roosh good post man, the problem with the U.S is that girls have too much power and protection. It has gotten to the point where they don’t respect their place as walking vaginas that must submit to men. Seems like all American women just enjoy doing whatever it is they want with no consequence and they also lost their feminine touch. This behavior goes unchecked and they get away with more and more.. Sometimes I have dreams of swinging at them and shattering their frail reality. (note.. don’t try this at home-you will get arrested for hitting girls) The balance of power is a pretty big thing- in Europe men beat the shit out of their wives/girlfriends if they tell the man to shut up just once.

Anyway, great post as usual

Yeah, cockblocking sucks, but while telling off the cockblocker FEELS good, it doesn’t really do much for you, as the set is still ultimately lost (and worse makes you look bad in front of any other potential sets.)

The two decent options to prevent cock-blocking are to either go after the women by themselves (no cockblockers) or to first win over the whole group (starting with any men) while ‘ignoring’ your target. Once you’ve got the group won over and are accepted as a cool guy, THEN isolate the girl. If you can’t win over the group first, you’ll get cockblocked frequently because a) women assume they need to protect each other from rapists b) they hate seeing the attractive one in the group always have all the fun.

>Didn’t they see she was having a nice conversation with a non-creepy guy?

No, women don’t see that because they haven’t talked with you yet 🙁

my technique is to speak to the ear of the cockblocker and say something like “back off bitch”, it is funny to see her expression of shock, she looks like a psycho if she starts a scream contest. Then you back away and leave them wondering

You are wrong.
Cockblocking has 99% to do with what you look like.
If you aren’t attractive to the entire group of girls, you will be cockblocked by the bitchiest one them. Fact. Roosh is not an attractive man. Looks creepy. Looks like a loser. He gets cockblocked because girls fear for their girlfriends’ safeties. You don’t need to isolate a group of women if you are handsome and funny. Roosh is neither and sees fit to blame it on American culture and female stupidity. Sorry dude. Life gave you lemons and you made fagonade.

Oh my dear god. I have seen so many ugly and fat guys with hot women. Your arguments don’t count. It has nothing to do with looks.

I agree with Wolf. The thing I always do is engage the whole group. If the girl comes to CB me i say something along the lines of

“who are you?”

If I approach a group, girls don’t know who I’m hitting on because I give them all the equal amount of attention until I feel it’s the right time to strike.

>I was extremely aggravated over this unwarranted attack on me. What is happening to women? I seriously think I need to start doing day game. Why are women downtown when all they want to do is reject men?

@Raliv–A few years ago I walking to a bar with my wing at that time. 3 hot chicks were walking home already. I overheard the ringleader say “any of you get hit on tonight?” then the other said “no” to which the ring leader said “it was lame anyway”

That’s the moment I realized that to women it’s a sport turning men down.

While #20 was obviously trying to be offensive toward Roosh, I think a lot of cockblocking has to do with a girl’s friends judging a guy as “not good enough” for their friend. Now this type of thinking is alien to guys. If I see one of my boys talking to a girl I don’t dig, I couldn’t care less. But when it’s girls, if her friends don’t like the looks of you, or your ethnicity or vibe or whatever, they will pull her away and the dumb bitches will think they “rescued” her like the girl can’t be responsible for her own decisions as to who she should talk to.

I was at a bar with a group of friends, a mixed set of guys and girls. One of the girls went to the bar to get a drink. Some drunk guy started chatting her up. The girl(our friend) was remaining there talking to him. Then one of the girls in our set said, “should I go over and rescue her??” I strongly objected and told her that she’s an adult and can walk away whenever she wants. Just leave them alone.

Women seem to think that their friend wants to leave but is scared to walk away and is being held “captive” by the threatening guy so they have to have a friend come to the rescue and yank her away. In order for that to happen, their friends have to view you as either creepy, threatening, not good enough for her, the wrong ethnicity or whatever. And they seem to think their opinion of you is more important than the opinion of the one talking to you. Some sort of sisterhood crap I guess. If Brad Pitt was talking to their friend, they wouldn’t be yanking her away.

yes. It sucks to be rejected. I have been slammed by women all over the place. Completely shot down in Mexico, Brazil, Colombia and of course my native land Canada. Women are women…..

It is hard to shake off. If women only know how hard it is to take a risk and make an approach. The problem is that most of the time women hold all the cards…….it really is like going to Vegas. The look up and down women give you, then the back turn is the worst rejection….Ouch.

I have had nights where i was thinking that i would never talk to another woman again after receiving a big rejection. Then, I look around the bar and see a whole bunch of other guys in the same boat. It is kind of comforting.

so, i go back again……because that one little victory, makes the pain go away.
