    one shot to make the difference

    I don't understand the first part of the sentence:

    Just one shot to make the difference between happily ever after and:
    "Oh, he's just some guy I went to some thing with once."

    Be noticed that I am not a teacher!

    I guess you got that phrase from the movie Hitch.

    This means the guy needs one more action (shot) to make the transition between love and not love with the woman.
    PS: That transition happens in a blink of an eye ;)
