1. Do you speak fluent Esperanto?
2. How can you use your Esperanto pick-up lines there? It was absorbed by Belgium many decades ago. Are there any groups of people in that region who still use the language?
I haven't researched it. But from what I've heard, Esperanto is much easier to learn than a so-called 'natural language' because it was designed to maximize efficiency and ease of learning - consistent grammar (not exceptions), phonetic spelling, no synonyms, etc. From a time point of view, it probably requires a much smaller commitment from a new learner than any other European language.
Unless its some sort of hobby or academic interest, choosing a language to invest in learning should be based on practical considerations - how it will benefit you socially or in career. If Russian girls are your long-term target over other girls, then it might make sense to learn Russian. If you are interested in the Spanish speaking world, which is quite extensive by the way (another important consideration), then Spanish might be worth learning. If you are interested in developing a life in greater Asia, Mandarin (verbal and written) is a good start and will be of at least some benefit in many of the countries in the region. Korean, on the other hand, is very specific to just one country.
Language learning is hard and time consuming for most people. Choose carefully keeping the practical aspects in mind.
