2.
To overwhelm with insincere talk, especially with flattery.
In The Catcher in the Rye, by J.D. Salinger, the narrator tells about Stradlater's technique of "giving girls the time".

"But old Stradlater kept snowing her in this Abraham Lincoln, sincere voice, and finally there'd be this terrific silence in the back of the car."
