I'm looking for help with the two phrases in bold below. From what I understand his friend wants him to bring his girl friend to the party but she doesn't want to go because she is shy.
However I'm not quite sure what his friend is actually telling him to do when he says 気分を盛り上げるんだよ, 素敵な予感を高めるんだよ. Whose 気分 is the speaker referring to here? Is he referring to the listener himself, the listener's girlfriend, or something else?
