This Week's Dating Assignment

A smart, funny, attractive guy who not only admits to being clueless about women but is willing to share his dating diary? Tap your inner Bridget Jones by offering him your advice.

My dating assignment for myself this week is:

THE BURNER METHOD.

No more pining over a gal, waiting days, worrying and losing confidence along the way. I'm going to begin applying the burner rotation system.

This system was in fact, created by a woman. She told me to have four burners.

* One would be on simmer, this is the girl I just contacted that I just met, and now I'm waiting for her next move.

* One would be on off, this is the longterm girl that is requiring time and patience.

* One would be on medium-hot, this is the girl that I can make out with and hang out with regularly but something is keeping us from dating.

* And the last burner - and this is the key — will remain empty, This is going to be filled temporarily by any girl I meet out. She'll either be moved to another burner eventually or cleared off.

So - what do you ladies think? I'll write back next week to tell you how I'm doing. We'll see if the stove gets really hot - or if I just end up burning my dinner...
