The best wing woman is....

30 September 2016, 13:06Shakila Alivitsa

Abuja - I have a friend, she is a good wing woman, thing is, she is also very pretty.

So when you take her and you to meet someone you are potentially interested in, just know it is a bust!

His focus will shift from you to her. But she is a good wing woman because she is not the type to outstate you and go after what you want.

If he is interested in her, she will flout him and now I will also do so because he has shown I am option 2. That is just how it works with us.

If you have a bad wing woman, you can get your feelings hurt very, very badly. You just need to watch who you bring around men you actually like.

She does not like to overtake the conversation

My friend is a good wing woman because she is always wondering off to be social. She knows everyone everywhere we go. She will sit with you people for five minutes, when she is really trying get bored and go talk to other people. You two have become boring. I think she has a very short attention span.

Someone who is always interrupting a conversation between you and you date/ potential/ your man just so you can both focus on her. Not good!

She is not provocative with your dates

You know those ones, touching indecently from the other side of the table; laughing too generously and asking indecent weird questions. If your friend does not do that, she respects your feelings. If she does not, she does not care about you and would easily make a move on him if he asked.

She is a relationship/ has her own love interest

It does not work for all because we know of some friends who would easily dump their man for a better situation. If your situation is better and she does not hold your friendship with high regard, then it can be a bust. A good wing woman is one who will not focus on your date but is like my friend always looking for other people to go talk to.

You two have different tastes in men

Always works like a charm. There is a reason they say for women friendship, same taste in alcohol, different taste in men’. If your friend likes what you like, it will always be trouble if you are both single.

You also do the same for her

If she is single a swell. It should not be a one sided thing in a good situation. She should also have her own things she brings you to as well. Your dates should not be the sole focus of her life.

No insecurity issues

Sorry to say but people with insecurity issues always have something to prove and they will use every opportunity they get. ‘See, I could get any man I want; even your man’ type of thing!
