Try this for now, if you are OOP, please do not cold call a PFR or even 3bet anything other than QQ+ and AK but feel free to add JJ and AQ vs a very loose fish. At this stakes, one can easily get away with 3b of around 3 pct and still be very profitable. Prolly 95 pct of micro stakes player don't have a HUD and reduce themselves to using 'gut feelings' (guessing) when faced with a 3bet.
Now if you are IP and are itching to call with a mediocre hand, I suggest sticking doing it only post flop passive players at first. Easier to run around post flop.
But in short, if you really suck, don't call, but don't 3bet light either. Seriously, it's not hard to pull off a nice win rate at 2/5 NL even with say 16/13. I've seen people do it with 13/11 even.
