Well, I move to Philly about a year ago, I know people, have an awesome wingman (who lives outside of the city which sucks) and have no problem going out by myself. Here's the thing though, I'm still in the process of learning the game. Confidence, even talking (still working on negging...) to women is easy for me, but I'm trying to refine myself (which is why I'm here) instead of bull in the china shop.
What I'm curious about though is, what are some of the best methods for approaching someone at the bar by themselves. I know the drink thing is played, but I don't know how I would begin to approach someone in these situations. It's like, if they are there alone, aren't they there to be alone. I know, sounds silly and I'm in my head on it, but just curious how other people have approached.
