I'm a terrible wingman. Like, really bad. I blab too much, and then I start going off about embarrassing things about my friend, which I find totally endearing.

But apparently, other people just find them really weird and probably inappropriate, and before you know it, my friend and I are both looking at a potential restraining orders.

So... don't take tips from me on how to help get your friend laid.

And if you can't flirt, what else should you do? Do you just have a regular conversation with her? Do you just work on physically getting her away from your buddy and his prospect? WHAT IS THE PROTOCOL?

Clearly, I'm no expert here. So take some advice from these five guys.
