40 days of dating

So, let me share a little tidbit about myself with you all. when I love something, I want everyone else to love it as much as I do. So when I found 40 Days Of Dating, I fell in love with their story and I want everyone to feel the same way I do about it.  I shared it on every social media outlet possible, emailed it to friends, etc. It is only natural to share it with my blog friends too. What is 40 Days of Dating, you ask?! Here is the back story of the Project

What do you do when you’re tired of the prospect of dating? Two good friends with opposite relationship problems found themselves single at the same time. As an experiment, they dated for 40 days. via



Oh and there are rules. Because what's an experiment without rules?! 

::We will see each other every day for forty days:: 

:: We will go on at least three dates a week:: 

::We will see a couples therapist once a week:: :

:We will go on one weekend trip together:: 

::We will fill out the daily questionnaire and document everything:: 

::We will not see, date, hookup, or have sex with anyone else:: 


Each day Jessica Walsh and Timothy Goodman will then answer a little questionnaire about what they did together and how they feel the dating is going.
 
I. Can't. Stop. Reading. 

Here is the deal, I want, no, I NEED them to fall in love...Because, yes, at the end of the day I am a huge romantic sap. I may not announce my love all over social media, I may not show much affection in public, and I am definitely not your stereotypical good girlfriend - but I believe in love, especially the nontraditional kind of love like theirs could be.  40 Days of Dating is love story gold and I am eating this shit up. 

Brad doesn't think they will end up together, because Brad doesn't believe in love and happy endings just doesn't think they have traits that will work well together in the long run, but I disagree. I think their differences in personality and views on relationships are what will make it work in the end. That whole opposites attract thing is real, right?!    

Also, double points to this project, because both Jessie and Tim are fantastic designers, so the graphic design portion of this project is spot on. And the little things they do for each other during the 40 days has been so unique and creative.  It makes me want to be more creative myself or take up graphic design fat chance...

My point is, do yourself on favor and get hooked on this project, you won't regret it. Unless they don't end up together and you end up heartbroken like I will be (fingers crossed that doesn't happen)!


Cheers to love, 

<3 BB

Obviously, now I'm obsessed with this and I'm going to be a heartbroken mess at the end if they aren't in happily ever after land!

Not gonna lie, I found you cause you shared this. Now I'm hooked to it (which is quickly becoming a problem because I have LIFE that's supposed to happen) and I have one more person to blog/twitter/instagram stalk all over again. faaaaaantastic ;)

Seriously girl, thanks for this. It's hilarious and I love your blog!

Oh my gosh I have been reading this for 2 weeks and I am hooked too! My co worker and I have been rooting for them, but I feel like outside influences are going to get Tim. If they fall in love i'm calling dibs on the screen play :)

Lauren said...

I saw this over the weekend (on buzzfeed, from which all good online things flow...) and was worried I would get hooked. I now have it open in the next tab. I'll let you know when I've caught up.

Meg {henninglove} said...

oooh this sounds so interesting! why couples therapy once a week though i don't understand that. that would be a bit heart breaking if they don't end up together but at least they can stay they tried

Laicie said...

Aww this sounds amazing! I'm such a romantic sap too I'm almost scared to get hooked, in case it doesn't work out!

Tami said...

I hate you for posting this. I've been seeing it everywhere but I haven't checked it out yet, but I figured if you loved it I probably would too. I only made it through day two and now I'm verry intrigued. I need to read it in small increments though, it's information overload!

Chandler said...

I feel like I need to go read this now! This is the first I am hearing of it but I'm a sucker for a love story... hopefully they stay together though or else I'll be heartbroken
