The main purpose for lay reports is for other guys in here with less game or skill to learn a thing or two to improve their games. With that said, it'd be helpful for them if you break down your mate game since he was the one who bedded Marie. From what I read so far, it seems that you giving us the impression that he got her solely based on his look and body.
I also agreed that you win some and lose some. However, that is usually for the cases that you come up to the girl and she flat out told you that you're not her type or has no interest. Cases that you have no control over. In this case, you had all the control and interest since she agreed to go out on a date with you. You didn't do anything on the bowling night. That's why she lost her interest in my opinion since you said it yourself that she didn't want any serious.
Certainly his looks created the initial interest from Marie. As soon as he walked into the bar, her eyes lit up and even more so when he came over and I introduced them. Patrick's game is very direct, like mine, especially if he gets an IOI from the girl. Marie was doing that, eye contact, brushing back her hair, all the usual stuff. Plus she's an ideal target for that kind of game. As a mature women, she's been there, done it, got the T shirt. She got married young, got an 18 yr old son, husband died in a RTA, had a few steady b/f's after that, but didn't work out. So the desire to settle down is not really there at the moment, and she likes young good looking guys who have lots of confidence and are not afraid to make it clear they don't want friendship. Patrick's very good at adapting his game to suit the target and would be different with an 18 year old virgin for example.
Anyhow, he complemented her on her looks and her outfit. She had a mini skirt, shoes and handbag all the same bright yellow colour with a black jacket and top. Patrick touched each one of them in turn and remarked on how well they matched, and showed off her face and legs. A very bold approach, and you could tell she loved it.
By now, I sort of regretted our "arrangement" and moved away to chat up the girl Patrick had bought in. She looked a bit concerned that Patrick was hitting on Marie, so I made a joke of it saying Patrick was just a "horny young lad" and that she musn't regard him as a long term boyfriend material. That didn't go down too well, but that's another story.
Anyhow, from a distance I could see Patrick gaming Marie and it was mainly a Kino type approach with quite gentle touching, but what also seemed like a jokey type approach.
When I went back, Patrick moved away and Marie remarked on how cute Patrick was and how she preferred his type to guys her age who were always trying to impress with things like cars and money. The sexual tension she was displaying was quite strong and I sensed that me and her were drifting back into the friend zone. But I did some kino of my own and recovered some ground to suggest we went home together. However I sensed that even if I bedded her, her mind would be on Patrick.
I've already explained that the 3 of us ending up back at mine and I could sense the sexual tension between them. Patrick didn't need to game her much anymore, and I knew that had he met her without me being there, they would have been in bed by now anyway, so that's when I said to them that they might as well get it off together.
