Do your job you silly wench :)

Today I was supposed to have some help flirting with the sandwich makers at uni except my wing(wo)man failed to do her job and I just ended up with two cups of tea and a chocolate bar. Because of this I decided to google the definition of wingman, just to give her some pointers should she chose to try again at helping making me look good. What I found made me smile quite a lot :)

Definition of Wingman...

Wingman is a role that a person may take when a friend needs support with approaching potential sexual partners. A wingman is someone who is on the "inside" and is used to help someone with relationships.

Procedure... (This made me laugh!!)

A pair of men often pick a desired woman, who is referred to as the "target". The man intending to seduce the target is often called the "Pilot". The "Wingman" is expected to back up the pilot, which typically entails distracting (distraction may take the form of casual conversation or attempting to pick up) the target's unattractive friend(s) and making comments that will make the "Pilot" seem more attractive. A group member of the "targets" party who disapproves of the "Pilot's" advances (commonly referred to as cockblocker) may also be prevented from interfering while socially and/or physically interacting with the wingman. When a wingman picks up an ugly friend, this is known as "taking a bullet."

The "Wingman" also motivates the "Pilot" to be social and practice approaching women. He helps the pilot approach pairs or groups of women without the awkwardness of being alone. He will take the less attractive woman of a pair or group so that the pilot can engage in conversation with the more attractive woman without interruption. The target may feel more relaxed talking to the pilot while her social obligation of entertaining her friend/s is taken care of by the "Wingman".

There are certain situations (i.e. emergencies) where the "Pilot" will approach targets with his "AW", commonly referred to as Automatic Wingman. The AW has the most experience in playing the role of wingman. Other responsibilities include remembering details (i.e. target's names aka "the bogey" and personal information) as well as compensating for intoxication in the judgment of the pilot.
