i think the social circle is super important. I‟ve never really cared much for having female friends because most of the female friends I‟ve had were girls I had no interest in sleeping with. But most of my ex-girlfriends are now my female friends. So one of the things that you have to realize is that if you want to have a large group of friends and you want to be able to network with those people and meet the people they know, one of the things you have to do is create social situations where those people can come into your social circle.

So one of the things I like to do is throw parties. I‟ll have a Super Bowl party every year. I‟m a good cook. Everything is homemade and made from scratch and so I‟ll invite a bunch of people over to watch the game at my place and have barbecue and I say, “Hey, if you have any friends that you want to bring along, feel free to bring them.” And I‟ll invite every girl I‟ve met up to that point. And not everyone shows up, but the people who do usually have a good time.

You need to set up these social situations where you can be introduced to people and bring them into your social circle. Then you are the center of some type of social interaction where people are basically forced to meet you and interact with you, and then once they‟ve broken that ice and gotten to know you a little bit it becomes easier to invite them to other stuff that‟s more casual or a one-on-one type thing.

It doesn‟t have to be a party at your place. It can be something as simple as, “Hey everybody, we‟re going to this club tonight.”
