40 days of dating sex
A suggestive look or touch or — we're all adults here — one alcohol-fueled evening can trigger that tidal shift from "just friends" to "together." Few friendships-turned-relationships begin as deliberately as Jessica and Timothy's, though.
Frustrated with the New York City dating scene and tired of complaining to one another about their failed relationships, the platonic pair wondered: What would happen if they dated each other for 40 days — and strove to break their worst relationship habits in the process?
Before I continue I should warn you that their couples therapist, her personal therapist, and their joint musings based on all the years of therapy they’ve previously had, feature heavily throughout the blog.
There were certain rules attached to the experiment.
They had to see each other every single day, they aren’t allowed to see or hook up with anyone else, they had to go on a proper date at least three times a week, they had to go and see the aforementioned couple’s therapist once a week, and they had to go on one weekend away together during the 40 days.
Finally, they had to fill in a questionnaire at the end of every day and document their relationship.
It seems I've repeated the same pattern again.
I opened up too quickly, empathized too deeply, and I have another failed relationship to add to the list.
As we sat there, we started rubbing each other and kissing.
At this point the blog has all the makings of a second-rate Jane Austen novel minus the social comedy.
