Best/Worst Dating Advice Ever: When you meet someone you like, keep dating around.

Sweet Jesus, who thought of that? It’s terrible. It goes against everything I believe is right—or at least do. But you know, it’s so true. It really can alleviate the whole waiting around for someone to call or holding all appointments until he has made a date. Never put all your eggs in one basket. Keep lots of baskets. Or if all you can afford is one basket, lay gather lots of different eggs. Dates in the hopper. Dance card=FULL.

(And now for a photo gallery of eggs, which I’m obsessed with right now. Cook two from the farmer’s market over medium heat for 5 minutes while you empty dishwasher. Flip once. Cook for 20 to 30 more seconds. Flip onto plate. VoilĂ . Perfection.)

This is what I think dating should look like, if you’ll allow the continued abuse of the egg analogy:

One basket, different eggs.

One basket, different eggs.

Or this:

Different eggs, coupla baskets.

Different eggs, coupla baskets.

Better yet:

Put your diversified eggs on a pedestal.

Put your diversified eggs on a pedestal.

Or forget the damn baskets:

Baskets are stupid.

Baskets are stupid.
