Wingwoman DOS and DON’TS
DO get the body language right. Being locked in a conversation with your friend makes her unapproachable, so face the room outwards. DON’T bar hop too fast. Give each place at least 30 minutes before you move on to the next place. DO tell your friend they’ve nothing to lose by chatting to a guy. It’s a conversation, not an audition. DON’T be rude. If guys approach and you’re not keen, say, “Sorry, but we have a lot to catch up on.” DO remember you’re her friend, not her mom. Aggressively warning men they need to treat her right can be off-putting. DON’T discount someone your friend likes just because he’s not your cup of tea.
