Wingmen work wonders for men. Women are frequently more comfortable being approached by a guy if there is someone to vouch for him – even if we don’t know the wingman from Adam.
Men, on the other hand, have no such reservations about being approached by strangers. In this regard, a wingwoman hurts you for several reasons. One being that the attention will be focused on the person who broke the ice. She will be perceived as bold, lively and fun. The banter will center around her. The person she’s introducing will be perceived as shy and weak. She will be fighting to overcome the attention being paid to the wingwoman and will hard pressed to get a word in edgewise. The men are already sparring over who will get the wingwoman and who will have to take home the “friend”.
You never want to be the friend. You never want to be second fiddle. Make sure that you are their only choice.
