Boosting your boy's confidence is great, but keeping it real with him is just as crucial. Nothing will stifle his swagger like getting shot down by a girl you knew he had no shot with, or who appeared entirely uninterested.

If he aks that you chat up the model chick in VIP, and he's clearly over-extending himself, you must point him in the direction of a more suitable woman without hurting his pride. "Those VIP girls are always a headache. Plus, we'll end up dropping way too much cash on bottles. How about the cute blonde drinking the beer?"

Congrats, you just avoided watching your man walk into a land mine, and saved yourself the inevitable eye rolling from Mrs. Out-Of-His-League. Win!
