How to be a good wingman

Step-by-step Instructions

Here is what you need to do...
Step 1

Know Your Role- You should never be more charismatic than the guy you’re trying to help, if you usually charm the pants off everyone you meet, dial it down when you’re riding shotgun. Otherwise you run the risk of being so smooth that the women don’t even notice your friend.

Step 2

Mention Your Own Lady- It often helps if the wingman is already taken,this is so you can still be charismatic with the ladies, but defer them to your co-pilot when it’s time to hook up. It shows that you’re not stealing anyone he’s also trying to meet, but rather, enhancing his own chances.

Step 3

Study Up- This last rule is simple: Don’t be a dimwit. You’re judged by the company you keep so if your wingman is a moron, then you by default are also a moron. Offer insightful opinions on current events, ladies dig smart guys and the packs in which they travel.

Special Attention

Difficulties people often experience or parts that need special attention to do it right.

Don't hog all the intention, make sure you place heavy emphasis on your friend and not yourself. A wing mans main purpose is to get the girl for his copilot.

Funny or interesting story about this topic...

One night me and a friend were at the bar and got separated for a short period of time, when I finally caught up to him I overheard him talking to a girl about how he was in a band that was on a country wide tour, which was a complete lie. Instead of ruining his chances by telling the girl he was lying, I simply walked over to him and expressed how big of a fan I was of him and asked for his autograph, I then shook his hand and went on my way. The next morning after the girl he brought home left, he bought me lunch.

When did you first do this & how did you get started?

Ever since middle school I have always been the one getting all of the girls, but my friends have never seemed to have it as easy as me. It's never fun going out to the bar or club and being the only one having fun, so I made it a goal of mine to always get myself a girl and my friends girls by being a great wing man.
