The Wingman is your trusted partner in crime. Always building you up in front of people and your backup in tough situations.

The Wingman is your trusted partner in crime. Always building you up in front of people and your backup in tough situations.

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish, and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper, and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger, those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord, when I lay my vengeance upon thee..” Ezekiel 25:17 (Performance by Samuel L. Jackson)

The Wingman is your  friend and ally. He should be willing to take one for the team. His goal is to keep the friends of the female of interest occupied through conversation, while you engage the women.  A good wingman can be boiled down to this fundamental principle – he will ALWAYS MAKE YOU LOOK BETTER. He does this by talking about how great you are to her, how you rescued those little kids from a burning school bus and how you take your nieces out for dinner every Valentine’s Day…

No matter what personal issues may be going on between you and the wingman, ALWAYS speak HIGHLY of your friends in front of her. Making him look bad will only make you look bad too. The antithesis to the Wingman IS the cockblock. You can read about the types of cockblocks and how to deal with the cock block in Man Law #28. Here’s a good article on being a good Wingman.

There are plenty of resources on the internet on the Art Of the Wingman, here are only a few:

Women love 'Battle of the Sex' games...Great example of 'Competitive Yet Playful' concept in action.

Three guys going up to one women will intimidate her – 2:3, men to women, is a good ratio to have in a small group at a bar or club. Unless its a guys night out,  going out in groups of 3+ guys is tough to manage in social situations…

Anything more than 3 and you want to have a women in there somewhere… Mixed crowds are more approachable then single sex ones.  Acknowledge both girls and guys in the group immediately when you approach. If the girl you are showing interest in gets the feeling that her friends are being ignored this will backfire on YOU! If you are one guy going into a group of 3 or more women, you may want to call for backup.  Enter the Wingman…Man Law #32.

Start writing your own Man Laws...

You need to have a set of principles that YOU live by.  These don’t have to be cast in stone and indeed they should change as you learn more., but you need to have certain principles that you stand up for and believe in. Ultimately, the best laws are the ones that you come to conclusion through your own experience!
