    Default Using Friends to Meet Girls?

    There's something I'm hearing about all the time about people meeting up. I keep hearing stories of how men and women are meeting up and getting into relationships via friend interactions and such.

    Although I now and these days view having friends build connections to girls that you are interested in as needy, pathetic, and just overall bad, I can't help but wonder about it. What is the input from the community on this one?

    I've heard the opposite, that meeting through a mutual friend at, say, a party or just hanging out is good social proof. The girl probably thinks your friend is cool, and being cool with the friend means you're cool. I've found it a lot easier to build rapport with girls this way than by cold approaches.

    Agreed

    I wouldn't see how this is a bad thing. In fact, it could raise your social value if anything.

    Hmm, that does actually make a lot of sense now that I think about it. Social validation is always a good way to establish yourself and make you more attractive to others.

    The barriers aren't really there as if it were a cold approach. FFS I've got one really good female friend (that used to be an gf back in highschool) and she just brings in a steady stream of chicks. They almost always end up being attracted just by me doing my thing and not even trying.

    So. Do it.
