How to Approach Someone, What to Order, and Common Mistakes

The prevalence of short shorts, upper lip sweat, and ghostly white legs can mean only one thing: Summer has arrived. (Hooray!)

And with it a renewed vigor to go out and — if you’re single — meet new people. It’s easier said than done.

In today’s video, DailyCandy staffers solicit advice from bartenders at a few of our favorite Manhattan watering holes. What do people do right and wrong when introducing themselves? Should girls send guys drinks? What’s the sexiest thing to order? And, of course, how should you hit on the bartender?

As we suspected, they’ve seen a lot — from men talking about themselves too much on a first date to a wife confronting her cheating husband.

It’s gettin’ hot in here.
