Ashley will show Brad that two can play at his game.  After previously being rejected The Bachelor by Brad Womack, Ashley Hebert will return to ABC as The Bachelorette on May 23.  We hear from that this soulmate searcher already knows one of her 25 bachelors, Bentley.  Unfortunately, a former cast mate revealed he may have hidden reasons for appearing on the show.  “Do you promise, on national television, to date 25 men simultaneously without complaining?” Jimmy Kimmel asked Hebert humorously on his show.  “Do you promise to make sure the hot tubs are clean and have enough chlorine and their bacteria levels are low?” The Bachelorette responded with, “I’ll do my best with that!”  Could the second time be the charm?

Cupid’s Advice:

Even Cupid needs to let loose now and again. Serious relationships get boring, so why not change it up?  Here are some reasons that dating around can be great:

1. No strings attached: You never need to check in, and you can do whatever you want.  Sometimes that just the kind of relationship you need!

2. Full benefits included: If you’re single, you can have it all.  Bored with one?  Onto the next. There’s no massive heartbreak involved. As one wise single said, “It’s like a buffet table.”

3. Self-esteem makeover: So, you have options.  How does that make you feel?  Probably pretty good.  Casually dating can enhance your self-esteem, and we all need that little boost once and awhile. Embrace it, feel pretty and keeping doing your thing.
