Get the vulture mug.
(verb) to actively wait until a relationship ends, and then swoop in and attempt to establish one's own relationship.

However, no sabotage is done, as in a vulture circling above an animal (the relationship) dying in the desert. Vultures are scavengers, and let the relationship fall apart naturally so they don't feel guilty (although guilt may be present regardless.)
"You've really got some nerve to vulture us like that, George!"

"But Jenny!"
