As the old adage goes, it takes 40 days to make a new habit. But does the same apply to habits people make in relationships? That’s the question two dating-weary New Yorkers posed in their new site, fortydaysofdating. Designers Timothy Goodman, 32, and Jessica Walsh, 26, longtime platonic pals, decided to turn “When Harry Met Sally” on its head and go for broke — for better or for worse. The two Chelsea residents told the Daily News that it was one part social experiment, one part design project. Each came into the project with vastly different histories. Walsh has been on an unsuccessful quest to find “the one” and Tim is enjoying the freedom of being single, a self-described commitment-phobe. They just happened to be single at the same time and were jaded over the New York City dating scene. Because the 40 days of dating were an experiment, there were several controlled elements — for instance, they had to see each other every day, go on a date three times a week and see a couple’s therapist once a week.

Goodman likes to play the field, preferring to casually date many women. This sparked the idea for their social experiment to see if the dating myth is true: Can two people with opposite dating styles make it work as a couple? They then created a blog after the experiment and published their journal entries side by side for all 40 days, illustrated in a unique way with graphic design.

My ‘Sex and the City’ experiment: A year of dating in NYC’s cutthroat meet market
As the coronavirus pandemic continues, Are You Getting Any? Are you currently in a relationship? A year and a half is quite long.
The duo, who have been friends for four years, decided to embark on a relationship “experiment” after finding themselves single at the same time. They settled on a day timeline, and agreed on six rules: seeing each other every day, going on three dates a week, completing a daily questionnaire, visiting a couples’ therapist every week, going on a weekend trip together and abstaining from dating, kissing or having sex with anyone else. In an attempt to explore and hopefully overcome their fears and inadequacies, Tim and Jessica will go through the motions of a relationship for the next 40 days: the commitment, time, companionship, joys and frustrations.
Can they help each other, or will they fall into their same habits? Will they damage their friendship? What if they fall in love? Walsh and Goodman have very different approaches to relationships — she tends to “jump right in,” whereas he is more wary of commitment. The experiment started in March , and the pair began uploading their daily questionnaires to the project’s website on July 10th.
They will release one new entry a day — the most recent entry is marked “Day Curious readers will have to keep checking back to see what happens next. We went into the project thinking we’d just learn about love and relationships, but came out learning an incredible amount about ourselves, and have both made positive changes in our lives. It’s important that we all find some time to work or reflect on our habits and fears.

An experiment to find the best dating app

That inescapable euphoric feeling that swept over them. The newness of getting to know someone on an intimate level. The bliss of knowing you can trust someone infinitely. It seems that breakups wipe everything that was initially established and what we first found redeemable about someone has suddenly becomes tarnished, if not just completely forgotten. Now, there are cases where individuals mislead and put on false personas, even live double lives.
In these cases, of course, deading all communication and washing yourself clean of their lies is completely justifiable.
