Are You a Good Wingman?
by Khadija Leon

Ever since men have been hitting on women, there have been wingmen helping them do it. Are you one of them? Sometimes you might be out with one of your buddies, and he is looking to hook up with a woman. Before you know it, he meets one he likes and he is talking to her, but she is with a friend.
