On paper, Timothy Goodman and Jessica ("Jessie") Walsh have opposite values when it comes to dating. In March, after finding themselves newly single and equally frustrated, they started dating for a 40-day experiment, with plans to document the entire journey, day-by-day. It's the Forty Days of Dating project — and for those keeping track, it's a captivating, borderline-addictive blog that's approaching a climax.
Two friends fed up with repeating the same dating habits decided to embark on a 40-day relationship with one another to see what happened: The story has all the makings of Hollywood romance, and it soon may become one. 40 Days of Dating, a social experiment that became a viral sensation, followed New Yorkers Jessica Walsh and Timothy Goodman as they documented 40 days of hand holding, planned dates, couples therapy, self-analysis, and even a trip to the Magic Kingdom. Throughout the course of their quasi-courtship, the pair said the process of cataloguing their feelings challenged them to confront how they approached love and life, in general. Goodman did acknowledge, however, that the pair is "definitely interested" in writing a book that details the aftermath of the experiment, as well as creating a community platform for others to embark on 40-day challenges that could range from parenting to physical fitness.

The two Chelsea residents told the Daily News that it was one part social experiment, one part design project.


Jessica Walsh, 26, was unsuccessfully searching for 'the one' when she accepted the challenge of dating a friend of four years.
Because the 40 days of dating were an experiment, there were several controlled elements a€” 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.
Timothy Goodman, 32, said that he enjoys the freedom of being single and feels smothered in most relationships. Even in the controlled realm of a 40-day project, the heart is an unknown and prone to be fickle. Though the dates themselves happened between March and April, the duo is releasing each day from now until Aug. They both live in New York City, work as graphic designers and have been friends for the past four years. They started posting about their 40-day spring stint on July 10, with daily updates to their blog, each from a different day (in chronological order). The first date wasn't awkward — "We got dinner all the time as friends, anyway," Walsh says — but the second day of the project (their first visit to the therapist) was a bit of a rude awakening. They've followed the guidelines so far — and, understandably, declined to give us any spoilers.

More than 300,000 fans checked in daily to read the "he said, she said"-style posts, which were recorded during the project then released to the public months later. Walsh, on the other hand, is a self-described "hopeless romantic" who jumps too quickly — her words — into relationships.
In the three short weeks, they've racked up close to 200,000 website visitors each day, something neither had anticipated. They just happened to be single at the same time and were jaded over the New York City dating scene.
16, the big 4-0, and finally reveal what everyone's been wondering: Are they still together?
Their different approaches to relationships are pretty generic, and not at all tied to New York itself. But there are plenty of real-life Ted Mosbys and Carrie Bradshaws who can relate to the difficulty of finding the right person — even in a city of almost 9 million people. Maybe Goodman and Walsh are onto something: If sitcoms and modern-day TV shows are any indications, it's the ones who have been in front of us the whole time who end up being the right fits.
