Examples of ingratiating in a Sentence

  1. Mark Hamillhas:

    I mean she was just so instantly ingratiating and funny and outspoken. She had a way of just being so brutally candid, i’d just met her but it was like talking to a person you’d known for ten years. She was telling me stuff about her stepfather, about her mom, about [her father] Eddie Fisher — it was just harrowing in its detail. I kept thinking, ‘Should I know this?’ I mean, I wouldn’t have shared that with somebody that I had trusted for years and years and years. But she was the opposite. She just sucked you into her world.
