40 Days of Dating

Hey Hart Beat. I just came across this hilarious and typical New York City art piece/film collection that I had to share with you. Have you heard of “40 Days of Dating“? Watch the video below for an introduction..


The Dating Rules from 40 Days of Dating on Vimeo.

The premise of the project is two friends, Timothy Goodman and Jessica Walsh, are both tired of the New York City dating scene and their own personal dating problems. They decide to date for 40 days and document the project with videos and questionnaires. It’s a hilarious idea and I especially love what each of them says about their personal dating history in New York. Oh, man, do I feel you two. While I guess the match didn’t last between Timothy and Jessica, it’s still fun to see them go through the different stages of getting to know someone and seeing if they are a good match for you.
What is difficult about dating in NYC?

Jessica: 
Everyone is too busy and thinks they can do better. I can be shy around new people, so I’ve had a hard time meeting guys here. For a long while the only interest I was getting was from a construction worker who would catcall near 15th street. Eventually I tried online dating, and I did meet some great guys, but it didn’t work out with any of them.

Timothy: 
I think the dating life here is only difficult if you’re looking to settle down. If you’re looking to date, it can be perfect. Everyone is so career hungry, and it’s hard for some men to stay focused when there are beautiful and interesting women everywhere.
Ha. So true my amigos, so true. What about you? Any good New York City dating stories? And P.S. some great advice I tell myself over and over again while attempting this terrible feat in this city.
