I usually get it taught, and then pull back about the length of my first fret, and they gives me 3 to 4 wraps

yeah was weird cause she liked us both but she loved him and for some reason she let me know beforehand.

i just wanted her poon and she wanted me to have her poon.

so i had myself some poon.
exactly 7.6 units of slack are required. otherwise everything will go wrong and your guitar will die. but to answer your question: i usually pull it down to the first fret. sometimes i eyeball it, but usually its wrong if i do.
