    Default C-Blockers: How to get rid of them politely?

    Hey PUAs,

    Total AFC question, but I'm having a hard time with this one.

    Over this weekend I went out with a group of friends. Two of the guys act like an old married couple, but are desperately lonely (emphasis on desperate). I figured no big deal, and just tried to stay away from them. Then, every time I'd settle into a good set, they'd wander over and either creep the girl out or otherwise irritate the girl(s) enough that they actually walked straight out of the club. This happened several times.

    Obviously, not going out with that crowd again if those two are invited, but want some advice on how to deal with similar situations.

    Specifically: How do I get rid of the tangle-tongued cockblockers without being the bad-guy or causing a scene?


    Thanks for the help!

    I hope a true expert can respond to this. I'm having a similar problem with my roommate. He recently was cheated on and dumped which has turned him into one seriously melancholy SOB. He actually attempts to talk women out of drinking with me, lol. The attempt, successful or not, is highly irritating.

    I had a serious talk with him about his uncouth behavior, and it seemed to work. However, he repeated the same BS routine again later, and justified himself by saying that I cannot be truely interested in every woman I bring back. I was honest with him about what a dick he was acting like, and now we have reached an understanding.

    You can be respectful and still honest about C-blocking. The person will likely just stay out of the way after your chat. I'm sure an expert here will have better advice than this, but I just had to relate on how I feel your pain, dude.

    Thanks for the communication tips.
    Let me clarify my question further:
    How do I stop them from blocking IN THE MOMENT?

    Excuse your self from the set and go talk to your friend. Try and avoid doing it in the moment otherwise the targets will me confused in a bad way. So let your friends know politely to stop C-blocking ahead of time! Also consider not trying to pick up women with these people.

    (1) If you can, play into it, then isolate.

    If your "friend" comes over and is like "hey, don't talk to this guy" then say to your target, in her ear "yeah, this drunk is right, don't talk to me, he's more your type." Let him say "seriously, he is bad news and will just hump you and dump you." then say "he's right you know, you're better off with him." *then walk away. Odd are wherever you land she will probably approach you after shaking him - if she doesn't, you can approach her after he leaves, say "wow, I thought you two had something there!" If he comes back after that, just *bounce* with her to a food place or another bar.


    (2) Distract him and her.

    If you have a wing who seems like a cock block, then open a low-value set and get him locked in to them. Then you will be free. If he still approaches you, then try the shielding move of putting your back to him, while suggesting to her (or you and her set) that you and her move to another location in venue. While the set moves, you can tell him not to follow, or point him out to the bar tender as a "security threat" if he seems like a big problem.


    (3)

    ...I don't have that much experience with cockblocks honestly. These two are the only ideas I've ever gotten. I usually just make friends with the guy (if he's just friendly), or frame him as annoying to the girls (if he's hostile) - then they move the set independent of me.
