Select a high traffic area (i.e. the mall). Memorize a two person script (provided below). Play out the scene with your missing partner as you are walking through the mall. Remember visualization is an important component of this exercise. Try to imagine you are actually talking to someone. When you reach the end of the script repeat it. Rehearsal is an important component of acting.

If anyone approaches you and asks who you are talking to look at them like they are crazy. Mutter, "Do you see somebody there?". Shake your head and walk briskly away from them; throw a few furtive glances over your shoulder for good measure and then continue the conversation.
SCRIPT

JENNIFER
(INTO PHONE) Okay Mom... Okay mom... Yes, I always hold my purse tight on the subway... Mom, I have to go, Adam can't figure out the dishwasher... Okay, bye.

ADAM
I can't fix the dishwasher? Why do you have to make me sound like a complete moron.

JENNIFER
Go ahead, turn it on.

ADAM
So what did your parents say about us being engaged?

JENNIFER
They're thrilled.

ADAM
Well of course they are, after all they have met me.

JENNIFER
Don't get crazy, it's not hard to look good compared to my sister's husband, the van customizer.

ADAM
Yeah, he'll make a fortune if the Age of Aquarius ever rolls around again.

JENNIFER
My mom did also say she'd like us to get married in a Catholic church.

ADAM
That's soooo boring. Can't we just get married near a Catholic church?

JENNIFER
Come on, it's important to her.

ADAM
Fine, fine. Speaking of church, what did they say when you told them we were living together like this in filthy, filthy sin.

JENNIFER
Well, my mom got quiet, then she told me they had Chinese for dinner.

ADAM
Oh I so wish my mom was in denial. Last week she actually asked me if I was fulfilling your sexual needs.

JENNIFER
What did you say?

ADAM
Well I said I was.

JENNIFER
Who's in denial now?

ADAM
Very funny. I would say I fulfilled some of your needs last night.

JENNIFER
Yes you did, mister.

ADAM
I was in a zone.

JENNIFER
Well, I look at it as a team effort.

ADAM
Well of course if you weren't there I would look ridiculous. You didn't seem to mind that part where I talked dirty.

JENNIFER
I don't remember that part.

ADAM
Hmm... maybe I was thinking it. Next time... should I say it?

JENNIFER
I'm all ears. Why don't you give me a little sample? (ADAM whispers in JENNIFER's ear)

JENNIFER
That's all you got?

ADAM
Hey if you can do better, let's hear it. (JENNIFER whispers in ADAM's ear)

ADAM (looks shocked)
Yeah, there's no way they are going to let you get married in a Catholic church.
