40 Days of Dating

I heard about 40 Days of Dating via Mashable so I realize it’s entirely possible you did too.

Just in case you did not, please click here. The concept is straightforward – two friends commit to dating for forty days, the length of time it’s thought to break a bad habit. It’s the execution that’s unique.

Both participants, Tim and Jessica, are design professionals and the web site on which the forty day process is recounted reflects that. It’s gorgeous.

While the forty days of dating happened in the spring, the recaps are just rolling out now. You can easily catch up in a day or two of binge reading and watching. Day 40 is August 16.

There are rules, of course. Even the rules are attractively presented!

I’m so curious to know how the forty days ended. Jessie and Tim don’t seem to be all that compatible but for some reason I find myself rooting for their dates to go beyond the experiment.

Incidentally, while reading Day 25’s post, I realized that Jessica Walsh is the Walsh of Sagmeister & Walsh. Yep, the company that goes nude in its marketing and promotional materials.

It’s that connection that made me wonder: is 40 Days of Dating real? What do you think?

    This is so interesting. But I’d hate to spend that much time with someone who has the potential to be completely annoying to me after the 10th day. Or the fifth.

    I’ve been following the 40 days of dating blog. I don’t think enough interesting things are happening every day. Maybe things will spice up once they go on their weekend getaway.
