I'm all for the wingman. Sometimes.
I think when a shy woman or man has a very outgoing, ballsy to the wall type of person with them at the bar, their chances of hooking up are greater.
When two outgoing people go the bar together, it could mean trouble in the form of competition. If your wingman is boring and bitchy, your chances are low.
Prospects view your friends as a direct reflection of what you may be.
Especially if your wingman is not attractive, I could go into details there, but Bev you know what I'm saying, right? I'll just say, I'd rather cute people be my wingman than not.
If you leave the bar number-less, you are sure to have a great time with your friend.
Wingmen are great.
But what happens when you hire your wingman? Or should say, wing woman. This was forwarded to me, today: VIP Wing Women.
I'd say yes. I'm sure these women are making some cash with their original idea.
But could they stop and think of the rest of us at the bar? Does jealousy really pop up when you see a man at the bar with other women? Causing you to want him?
The only thing that pops into my mind when I see a man with another woman is that he is already taken.
Let's say, that this technique works on you. Then later, you find out that, that wingwoman was hired? And doesn't know him but was placed there to lure you in...well, it worked, so what could you do then?
This is what I propose:
They have it backwards, the men don't need women to get women. Men need no one. The women need a woman to get men. Note, I said "woman" singular.
I don't believe in a whole coven of women heading to the bar with high expectations of meeting some men. No. Way.
I think all it takes is me and one other. That's all. The bigger the group, the more intimidating we look to potentials.
If the wingwoman is hot, yeah for me. She'll lure him in, but my wit and expertise flirting can do the rest.
Or, she'll lure in his buddy: the one who only goes for the hot babes in the bar and I'll be left with his quirky friend, that no one else thinks is the hot one.
Not that he isn't cute. Just that he is the one, like, let's say the Josh Lucas of the bar. He's good looking, but not so much that he thinks he can bed anything that walks, and he is the shy one. More shy than his buddy who is busy trying to get my wing woman's digits.
Ah-ha. Like I said, they have it backwards. We're the ones that need this service, not men.
I'm just saying its all about who you surround yourself with. If I go to the bar with another man, I'm not looking available. The same goes for men that are there with other women.
I just don't see this service working in men's favor---am I missing something?
