Grammar Lesson: Not Only / But Also

Not only did I meet (and make-out with) a boy on the Fourth of July, but I also gave that boy my number.

Not only did I give that boy my number, but he also utilized it within less than 24 hours.

Not only did he utilize that number, but he also asked me out to dinner.

Not only did he ask me out to dinner, but I also said yes.

And we're going out tonight.

MLA states that you cannot split "but also" : it is like splitting the infinitive, which is not grammatically correct.
