Cockblock

verb; compounding
For someone to interfere with a man’s interaction with a girl to whom he is attracted This word has undergone widening in recent usage as it now refers to the prevention of any consensual interaction between a girl and a man instead of the prevention of specifically sexual interaction. It should be clarified that this word would not refer to the prevention of interaction not desired by the girl. This action would be regarded as chivalrous, while the cockblock typically, though certainly not always, refers to a dishonorable activity, stealing a girl from a boy in pursuit. The use of ‘block’ is a metaphoric shift; the third party is not physically blocking the cock but instead blocking the road taken by the victim for whatever purpose.
