Re: Step one for a hardcase newbie...
JayBee is right. Approach as much you can. Talk to everyone you meet. While you're waiting to cross the street, in line at the coffee shop, in the dentist office, in line to get into a club... If you have a lot of anxiety, work on safer openers first like asking for directions or giving a compliment. Keep it short and sweet and work on progressively making the interactions longer. It will start becoming a habit soon and you will get anxiety if you DON'T approach. Here is an article on doing pre-opens to help you get started. Good luck man.
