Re: date? or friends?
Another option might be pick up at malls or grocery stores. Bars are not the only place ,plus approaching at malls /grocery stores will build up the confidence for those bar interaction where you have to make sure you have good comebacks ,if the guy starts dissing you ,but remember to be friendly to him.
Dont have routines as the cards in your deck ,have skill instead ,because once a routine is done ,its done ,you cant do it again in the same interaction ,but skills can be done over and over ,so then you could play a card twice.
