To save money
My buddy Sam called me this morning to talk about his weekend. He went out to a bar in Ballard and noticed a lady giving him the, “crazy eyes”, or repeated gliares from across the room. He was so confident that she was interested that he decided NOT to use a Wingman Card (bad idea).
The approach went smoothly, the conversation was going well, and she seemed generally into him. He did find it strange that she dropped this comment early on, “Well, aren’t you going to buy me a drink?” He complied and ended up talking to her for forty minutes and buying her two drinks, which came to $15. After he bought the second round she saw a guy she knew and told Sam to, “hold on a second” then walked away only to never return. What happened?
Unfortunately, I told Sam, she either:
1) Found you initially attractive but you said something (probably because you were intoxicated) that she didn’t like and decided you no longer had a chance. But she wanted free drinks so she let you buy her two rounds before making a quick exit.
2) She wasn’t interested from the beginning but wanted you to buy her drinks so she didn’t have to pay (sad, but this actually happens).
If #1 was true, which is more likely the case considering the crazy eyes, if Sam had used a Wingman Card he would have save $14, spent those 40 minutes enjoying time with his buddies, and would be receiving a message online from this lady today.
If #2 was the case, then he would have also save $14 and 40 minutes and not felt crappy the rest of the night had he used a Wingman Card.
Moral of the story is by using a Wingman Card you save money, save time, eliminate getting awkwardly rejected, and have a better chance of getting a follow up date. Done and done.
Ps. Here’s a little text from a blog “Texts from Last Night” that reaffirms that this happens.
“(503): I’m sitting next to this guy at the bar. I wrote him a little song in my head it goes “there is no chance you’re getting in my pants” gonna sing it to him after he buys me another drink.”
