blisticle6 Erin Austins Blog: Dont Put All Your Eggs In One Basket10 Signs That They’re Your Best Friend

It’s a saying that most of us heard as a child from our mothers.  It’s a saying that I believe men follow and women DON’T!   Well at least women don’t follow when it comes to relationships.  We tend to be “all in” everytime.
As I get back into the dating scene I’ve noticed that I kind of do this.  I’ll go on a few dates with a few different people and slowly weed them out till there’s just one.  That may not seem like such a bad thing, but it’s bad when you haven’t discussed being exclusive yet.  So instead of replenishing my roster like a guy typically would, I leave myself with one option.  I put all my eggs in that one basket.

What I should really be doing is continuing to date multiple people until something is established.  If it never moves forward at least I won’t be heart broken when it ends.  I’ll at least be able to keep myself distracted and detached enough to not care.

Women are infamous for putting all eggs in one basket.  We see something we like and focus on it.  Where a guy is ALWAYS keeping his options open.  OK…maybe not ALWAYS, but I’ve never met a guy that was getting attention from just ONE girl.

I mean, most times I go on a date with a guy his phone has gone off with at least once with a text or phone call from a girl.  Granted, they could be “just friends” or co-workers, but point is there’s females in the vicinity.

So what’s the conclusion here? I always say tread with caution when it comes to my heart.  However, despite me doing this I always seem to put my eggs in a basket and end up getting hurt.   So, maybe I should try giving this “keeping my options open ” thing a try.
