Starting a Romance Question

During the initial back and forth, the rules says that each participant can either meet the wagers of the previous roll or exceed them. If they choose to meet the wagers and make the TN roll, the Romance can start.

My question: The following sections (Predator & Prey and Potential) seem to assume that one of the two participants have failed their Beauty roll. How do those sections work if the participant only meets the wagers and chooses to start the Romance?

Not got the book to hand, but off the top of my head:

If one one person matches the number of Wagers then the romance has the potential of the full number of Wagers set by both participants.
If one person fails a roll then you get the full number by the last successful person + either half the number of Wagers if they rolled 10 OR no wagers if they fail to roll 10.

As to who is Predator and who is Prey when a match is made I'm not sure, but surely such a following play would lead you to be Preadator, rather than taking the lead and seeking to be hunted by your interest.

Whether you choose to meet the wagers or raise them, you still make a Beauty risk. Each time, you make that risk.

If both participants match wagers and succeed, then I would use the same rules you use in contested risks (p119) and dueling (p199): The person who rolled higher is the victor, gains Privilege, gets to use all of her wagers, and becomes the Prey. The person who rolled lower is the loser, only gets half of her wagers, and becomes the Predator.
