|1.||never bring food to a buffet|
an expression which basically asserts that it is unnecessary (and often self-defeating) to be accompanied by someone of the opposite sex to an event where there are likely to be a significant amount of unattached people who are potentially looking for an opportunity to "hook up".
applies of course to those who are not married or not in a steady, long term relationship.
"so, are you going to Darren and Tracey's wedding? I hear there will be lots of hot singles there!"
"for sure. maybe I should bring along a date, what do you think?"
"no no no, my friend......remember....NEVER bring food to a buffet!"
