It's funny how most adults have had their share of experience with relationships, and yet it's a topic that is so hard to fully comprehend. We all seem to struggle with defining what is right and wrong, what we're looking for and why we're chase what we chase.
Jessica Walsh and Timothy Goodman are no different — two datings in New Yo "Of all the emotions or experiences I've had on this earth, love is the one I understand the least. Jessica Walsh and Timothy Goodman are no days — two friends in New York City, both graphic deers and workaholics, both with a belt full of failed relationships.
They decide to start an experiment and date each other for 40 Days. Every day they would see each other, every day they would engage in what is defined as a relationship. Will their friendship sustain or dating true romance evolve? My mom days said you should never chase affection; people usually show you what they're willing to give rather quickly and if it's not given freely, it's not worth having. This book is a collection of said entries in addition to some writings of the aftermath and some essays and contributions from friends, fans and family.
I was intrigued by the general idea of this and enjoyed days how their relationship developed over the forty days. Dating these days seems to be so strangely formulaic and it was fun reading retellings of the events from both perspectives, as occasionally they would describe specific situations completely different or even contradict what the other person said. They were both utterly honest about their motifs and feelings, which is admirable and made this more interesting. What I didn't care about were the essays on love by friends or messages they had received from fans after their website launched.
All in all, still a project that is curious as well as it is intriguing. View 2 comments. Feb 24, Molly days it liked it. Stumbled upon accidentally, this book was a mistake that wormed it's way, happily, onto my reading list. I found the concept and de of this experiment fascinating, especially because it was both emotional and intellectual.
It spurred me wondering if I would ever be bold enough to undertake such an experiment with a dating friend of mine. Could I risk such a friendship? What are my main relationship hiccups? Can two people develop enough feelings for each dating to override their shortcomings?
I Stumbled upon accidentally, this book was a mistake that wormed it's way, happily, onto my reading list. I desperately wanted to know if Tim and Jessica were able to make it work. And reading through their journal entries was psychologically and emotionally fascinating.
40 days of dating: an experiment
I struggled, however, with the second half of the book: the datings that each person made post-experiment. Perhaps I am just a snob about organization, but it infuriated me that I was reading them side by side when one person was writing about June and the other was writing about August.
I truly felt that those entries following the initial experiment would have been better organized in chronological order instead of having the left s reserved for Days and the right s for Timothy.
It would have made more sense. I ended up flipping s fifteen times with two bookmarks so I could read them in chronological order anyway, which was tedious and annoying. Overall, though, I think this was an interesting portrait of modern relationships. May 12, Babsra rated it liked it Shelves: albs-book-club. For two graphic deers, this book was pretty poorly deed. Interesting style but raw.
I really did somewhat enjoyed the different type of writing style. With a big plus of raw information. Both of them blend together pretty well for me to be constantly curious.
Personally, I never had a relationship or dating too much. However, I gave this story three stars not because of what happened in the end. It is more about the difference between enjoying it and hooking int Interesting style but raw. It is more about the difference between enjoying it and hooking into it.

Wonderful format. I loved how real they were. How much they shared, in a very fearless way. Story-wise, nothing special.
But offered some great insights. Would recommend to anyone! There was something very American in this. Very New York. But hey: I love New York.
