When is it okay to actually date a bartender? (no offense to any of ya'll out there)

They always hit you, or appear to hit on you, to get that nice tip etc. and keep you coming back. Occasionally you get their number and maybe it turns into a 1-night-stand.

Where do you go from there? Keep going to the bar as normal and say hi? What's the deal and how would you keep the waters going?

On another perspective, what if you're the one that they are actually down for? DO you keep dating them, knowing that they are getting tons of smiles and advances all night long? Hope your confidence is high, and their willpower/devotion is strong (if it's monogamous) and press on?

Just curious what the RJ'ers out there would do.
