Back in my I-banking days, a male co-worker and I used to go out for cocktails during week nights after a hectic 12 hour work day. At the time, he was jumping in & out of an unhealthy relationship, so when we would go out to lounges/bars, I would end up taking the role of “wingwoman“.
According to this article, a “wingwoman” is defined as: a girl who helps guys meet chicks in bars by posing as the guys’ platonic female friend.
In my case, I wasn’t posing as his friend, I really was one! But the author here actually worked as a part-time wingwoman. Apparently “wingwoman services are available in many cities, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Miami, and Saint Louis.”
Holy crap..who knew???
Larger groups of girls are supertough (read: intimidating) to approach. Three is a good number because your two friends can keep each other company when a guy walks up to chat with you.
MG: TRUE. One time my guy friend had his eye on this one cutie in the crowd. Unfortunately, she was surrounded by a sorority-like entourage and he became totally intimidated. Later on that eve, while dabbing on some gloss in the ladies room, I had bumped into the girl my guy friend was interested in. While chatting up lip-gloss shades, I mentioned to her how my guy friend thought she was adorable.
And speaking of guys..
Where you learned your signature sex move.
Mustache bleaching (not to mention what happens when your bikini waxer takes a long vacay).
I had this happen to me by crazy stalker ex’s bc they were either psycho, insecure, and/or cheaters. Stay AWAY from MG’s stuff!!!

So in the book, co-author Greg says -
“When men want you, they do the work. I know it sounds old school, but when men like women, they ask them out.”
Ladies, this rule works both ways. Don’t be an a**hole.
3. Relationship Rule to Retire: Call after the obligatory three days.
Ya. This one has to die…like right now. With texting/bbm’s and even Twitter DM’s, there is NO reason anyone needs to wait 3 days. Eff-that.
4. Relationship Rule to Retire: Cook for your man.
What’s wrong with cookin’ for the boy? This is a sweet, endearing gesture and shows that you care about your man. I mean, unless your cooking skills are shit-tay…are they??
5. Relationship Rule to Retire: Let the man (always) pay the bill.
Second, if we keep rule #4 alive, then paying for dinner won’t be an issue.
Problem solved – YAY!
Funny, sweet & smart will always work…every time
Problem solved – YAY, again!

Cosmo breaks down what the darling gents
1. Your Smile
Does it seem sweet and genuine? Does it seem awkward and forced? Does it seem like you ate a sesame-seed and parsley salad for lunch based on what’s lodged between every single one of your teeth?
2. Your Hair
Guys have no idea what split ends are, and if you mention roots, they just think of the band. But they do look to see if your hair looks 1. soft and 2. as though it would smell good. So don’t request “The Gosselin” at the salon, and wash it every so often. That’s all guys ask.
3. Your Cleavage
Newsflash: Dudes like to look at your chest. Now, that’s not to say they think all women should unbutton their shirts to their bellybuttons at funerals. (Though really, who are guys to judge?) But they will notice how you’re showing off what you’ve got.
You know that blemish you’ve been obsessing over all day because it’s so huge? Chances are guys won’t even notice. What will they notice? If you look like a jaundiced Oompa-Loompa because of overenthusiastic tanning.
Are all women who haul around big purses — in other words, cavernous rucksacks stuffed full of old receipts, emergency sweaters, and half-used bottles of hand sanitizer — high maintenance? Maybe not. But guys will go ahead and assume they are anyway.
It’s Cosmo Time!!!

1. The Date: Rent a Vespa and Go for a Ride
Why He’ll Love It: Your guy will feel like a badass on two wheels and you’ll have the perfect excuse to wrap your arms around him.
What to Wear: Channel Kristen Stewart and wear a leather jacket, skinny jeans, biker boots, and a helmet.
The Bad Girl Move to Make: After your joyride, head back to your place and take off everything…except the motorcycle boots.
2. The Date: Take Him to a Classic Rock Concert
Why He’ll Love It: He’s been dying to see Aerosmith, Bob Dylan, or Cheap Trick since he was a kid — and you’ll be the girl who made his dream happen. If his favorite band isn’t touring in your city, find a local paper and pick out an up-and-coming band you both want to check out.
What to Wear: Put on a vintage concert T-shirt, ripped jeans, and Converse sneakers or ballet flats so you can rock out without getting blisters on your feet.
The Bad Girl Move to Make: Grab his hand and sneak down to the very front row before the band comes back on stage for their encore. He’ll love being thisclose to rock legends.
3. The Date: Score Tickets to See a Basketball Game
Why He’ll Love It: Whether it’s a pro team or his high school alma mater, watching a fast-paced game of hoops will get his adrenaline pumping.
What to Wear: Leave the jerseys for the players to wear and sport a sexier outfit in the team’s colors.
The Bad Girl Move to Make: Make a bet about how much your team will win by and tell him what you plan to do to him when you claim victory.
4. The Date: Take a Boxing Class
Why He’ll Love It: You’ll score major points for indulging his sporty side and rev him up for later by throwing a few playful punches his way.
What to Wear: Put your hair up and slip into yoga pants, a sporty top, and big red boxing gloves.
The Bad Girl Move to Make: Pin your guy down on the ground so you are lying on top of him and whisper that this is just a preview of the showdown you’re planning for later.
5. The Date: Head to a Shooting Range
Why He’ll Love It: Even though he’s just shooting a paper target, your guy will be totally turned on by the feeling that he could, in theory, kill and cook his own dinner.
What to Wear: Pair a chic flannel shirt with your boots and jeans, but leave a few of the top buttons undone to keep him from spending too much time staring at the bull’s-eye.
The Bad Girl Move to Make: Don’t just watch him shoot, get your own gun and make him watch you ace your target.
6. The Date: Go to a Beer and Cheese Tasting
Why He’ll Love It: There will be beer. Enough said.
What to Wear: Lace leggings and knit minidress with booties is sexy but not over the top.
The Bad Girl Move to Make: Use the tip of your tongue to lick beer foam from your lip, then say, “You’re next.”
7. The Date: Take Him to See The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Why He’ll Love It: This flick has a legendary cult following of fans who dress up in costume to watch the movie at midnight. He’ll brag to his friends that seeing the movie was your idea, and you’ll earn a license to take him to see as many rom-coms as you want for the rest of the month.
What to Wear: From the sexy costume you wore last Halloween to an all-black outfit with above-the-knee boots, anything (and everything) goes.
The Bad Girl Move to Make: Sneak in a flask filled with booze and tell him you’ll only share if he promises to go home with you.
8. The Date: Go to a National Park
Why He’ll Love It: Taking a break from the distractions of the city will be refreshing for both of you and he’ll get to show you how he earned his fire-building badge.
What to Wear: Hiking boots, bright-colored cords, and a sexy cami underneath a sweater so you can easily strip down when the fire heats up.
The Bad Girl Move to Make: Start by telling him a ghost story that’s obviously about the two of you and turn it into one of your sexual fantasies.
Dahlings: which date do you think would be the most memorable for a guy (and you, of course!)…?
Years ago, I used to be an avid Cosmopolitan reader (magazine not website).
So, when I saw the Cosmo article-slide show “10
Truth #4: Just as it’s best to wait to drop the L-bomb until your man does, let a guy change his Facebook status to “in a
Truth #5: No woman in a healthy long-term relationship has ever said, “Gee, I really wish I’d slept with my man sooner.“ (I guess…wait, what?) LOL...
Truth #6: Keeping a change of clothes at work in case of an emergency walk of shame isn’t optimistic behavior…it’s career-savvy. (Uhm…hoe?!)
Truth #7: When a guy repeatedly refers to his exes as “crazy,” “psycho,” or “sluts,” he will use those same words against you one day. (Totally dated a guy that did this too. Wonder if he now describes me as psycho…whatevz, Douche!)
Truth #8: If a relationship feels like too much work after the first month, it’ll be 10 times harder a year from now. (it’s called a shit-tay relationship – Get.Out.Now.)
Truth #9: A guy who rates you or other girls as a number from 1 to 10 is a loser, even if he gives you a 10. You’re a woman, not county fair livestock. (Some guy just yelled a number out at me as I walked out of Daffy’s the other day.. WTF is wrong with some dudes? NOT HOT.)
Truth #10: A guy who talks about how skilled he is in the sack is like a man who brags about his money. Either way, he ain’t got it. The kind of man you want to be with knows that actions speak louder than words. And thankfully, there are plenty of those types out there! (Where? I kid of course, lol!)
Have you dahlings ever experienced any of the above “Dating Truths”???
