If recent bar exploits with your go-to wingman have repeatedly fallen flat, it’s time to consider a new approach: bringing along a wingwoman. After all, who would know “the fairer sex” better than your female friends? OK, so the devil’s advocate in you might be thinking, “Wouldn’t other girls think we’re a couple and thus scare away potentials?” Quite the contrary, says professional wingwoman Jennifer of wingwomen.com. Girls tend to be more relaxed and open to conversation with a guy when they see him hanging out with another women, Jennifer says. “It’s as if you’ve already gotten that seal of approval.”

Here are some of Jennifer’s pointers on how your wingwoman can help lend air support:

  • People are attracted to fun, so you and your wingwoman should always have a good time—or at least look like you are!
  • Don’t stand or sit too close together. And keep the physical contact to a minimum. That way, most girls will realize you’re just platonic friends.
  • Utilize your wingwoman’s instincts when it comes to separating the catches from the clinger-types. “Women can tell if another girl is interested, just by their mannerisms or body language,” Jennifer says.
  • Have your wingwoman talk you up while you’re away ordering a round. If you and your prospect hit it off, your wingwoman can excuse herself…then go scout some other possibilities.
