What happens when a single woman starts dating an equally single friend for 40 days? Will or won’t they end up together? It’s the question that everyone is wondering about right now (check the hashtag #fortydaysofdating on Twitter).
Her name is Jessica Walsh and his name Timothy Goodman, they are both designers based in New York. They have opposite relationship problems. He is afraid of commitment, often dating many girls at once, and he’s losing sight of what a healthy relationship means. She is a hopeless romantic, jumping into relationships too quickly, always looking to find “the one”. Jessica and Timothy were simultaneously single so they decided to date for forty days (apparently it takes 40 days to change a bad habit) as an experiment. The best of it all? They share their experiences with the rest of the world in daily updates on www.fortydaysofdating.com. You get insight into both’s perspective about the experience, which makes an interesting read. Needless to say that the site looks great. What did you expect from two designers?

Today marks the 30iest day of dating. For me it is like watching a good movie, I always want the movie to last as long as possible yet I’m eager to know the end. Right now, there are ten more days to find out if they will end up together and to enjoy their updates. Take a look at the site if you are romantic just like me! I wish them both the best! That they may find what they are looking for!
