    Yeah... that's pretty much exactly what the concept they're trying to use is..
    What would you do if you met your SO this way and then later found out that his female "friends" that you met him with were actually paid women from one of these kinds of services?

    Yeah, the hired wingwoman to me is almost as icky as the PUA stuff, just targeted at a different group I guess.

    Sounds like a romantic comedy.

    I'm gonna write a script and make millions.

    edit: Oops wait, I read that wrong.

    Still, good story idea. :P

    wait. I misunderstood. I dont like the idea of pretending to be a guys female friend in order to make another woman feel like he's passed a woman test or something. I think that's a bit too contrived for me. I thought it was more like when two people are trying to connect but having a little trouble and need someone else to help smooth the rough edges and bring them together. I like being more neutral socialite-ish.

    Also, as a woman I would never ever take the advice of another women I don't even know about a guy.

    It's both actually... the real friend wingwoman and the paid wingwoman... The latter does sound a bit contrived like you said... The former is definitely more real... I agree with your analysis on both.

    I would feel even more uncomfortable and unlikely to talk to a man who had a woman with him. I know some people feel comfortable having other women as a buffer, but not it. This is likely all in the way the situation is broached and what sort of person is being approached. Personally, i get along better with men than i do women so i would view them as a catty source of judgment over a safe haven.

    The concept isn't too bad, but it really depends. I think people should be able to fend for themselves for the mostpart.

    I've probably been an inadvertent wingwoman, but if someone asks me to take care of/buffer a situation they'll probably be out of luck. This could be due to my desire to take control of and press something when it is implied, opposed to when i'm asked to.

    Might work for such a company . It would be amusing and if i were paid to interact with broads then sure. Wouldn't be wasting my time without reward and some people are a bit hopeless.

    How do you go about it? How would you go about being a Wingwoman?

    I usually try to hype up the guy and talk more about him since I know nothing about the girl. If the chick is cool then I tell him to go for it! The rest is up to them to figure out.
