The best place to find a bunch of single women all in one place is at a wedding. Play the long game. Every wedding has that one guy who boorishly inquires about the hotness of the bridesmaids.
Weddings are fraught with landmines that always seem like a big deal in the moment but rarely are. Think like a bridesmaid and try to envision all the things that could go wrong: Be prepared with a few Band-aids, a packet of tissues, and safety pins in your pocket so you can swoop in and save the day when one of these snafus inevitably occur.
Do not get wasted.
We repeat, do not get wasted. This advice may seem counterintuitive but in the pursuit of a one-night stand, an open bar is your enemy. And if the lady you have your eye on is seeing double, get her some of water, too. The other bridesmaids will thank you. Ask her back to your place. Open a bottle of wine, then set it out to breathe. Meanwhile, dim the lights and have at it. Make sure to squire your bridesmaid safely back to her place, whether she leaves at 4 a.
At this juncture, discretion is key: Swap numbers, or not, but be a gentleman from start to finish because the gossip will get back to the bride and groom. You've successfully subscribed to the New York edition of InsideHook. Perhaps you want more?
