    I don't want to get involved in that.
    Some women mentioned before that they would actually "break the ice" for their more introverted male friends and sort of approach the woman for them. How would you view that scenario if it happened to you? Let's say it was clearly apparent that they were friends.
    I think I read somewhere that the psychology behind this is that some women feel more comfortable talking to a man that already has a female friend with him. (can't remember the reasons right now though)

    haha...right! i totally would!!

    and yeah...i don't like being approached but would probably be more open to talking with a mixed group of people yep...actually...thinking about it more yeah...i would rather be approached by a woman...and just casually meet one of her "male" friends...yep...this would totally make some people more receptive i think.

    It's pretty trippy right? Guys paying women to help them pick up other women.. But I understand the concept though.

    I think you should check it out Lady X. Then you can say I referred you and it can be a win win situation for both of us.

    You are buying the value that a woman finds you interesting enough to be friends with. I guess that might lead to issues down the line though. If the relationship took off.

    Yeah, you could be the one that changes lives. It is a funny idea, you'd need to be able to pick your guys to make it work.

    oh for sure...as a woman...you automatically think he must be respectful of women and value them as people not just sex objects...so he seems safe...nonthreatening...and a lot more interesting.

    I tend not to approach guys when they're with other women, whether the women are friends, 'wingwomen,' or a casual acquaintance. I do better, socially, if I'm one-on-one with a guy. Having friends or 'wingwomen' around usually leads me to feel less self-confident. That's my own hang-up, I know, and one that I'm working on, but I can't deny that it's true for me. I certainly don't mind a guy having women friends, and generally prefer a guy I'm interested in to have more women friends than men (it tells me something about his personality if he's able to keep women around as friends). But if I'm meeting him for the first time at a bar, club, party or get-together, I'd prefer to do it on my own.

    Have I been a wingwoman? Yes, once, inadvertently. I tend to be the 'best friend girl' for a lot of guys. They love talking about music, art, film, books and pop culture with me...but they just don't see me as a romantic partner. Years ago, I was really interested in a guy friend of mine. I thought he was the bee's knees. Sadly, of course, he didn't feel the same way about me, but I kept hoping that at some point he'd change his mind. We went to a friend's barbeque one night and I met another woman there who was apparently very interested in my guy friend. I got talking with this woman and misread her signals when she started asking me questions about him. I thought she was looking for a little "girl talk," giving me an excuse to gush about what a great guy he was and surreptitiously let her know I thought he was the best thing since sliced bread. So that's exactly what I did. I blathered on about his intelligence, his interests, his humor, his looks...and inadvertently convinced her to ask him out that night. She did, he was flattered, so off they went. He thought it was cool with me since I was the one who drove that night. He was one less person I'd have to drop off on the way home. They went out for almost a year. ...Ugh.
