Jess: I'm a little overwhelmed at times. For example, I was shoe shopping the other day and some girl ran up to me and started freaking out. You know, she thinks that she is me and we would be best friends. People feel like they know us. We get emails from people that are in the city and want to meet up with us. Cosmo : Do you get people approaching you now saying they want to date you?
Jess: I've actually gotten lots of really thoughtful emails from some guys who say how they really like me and how I would like them. It's kind of creepy Tim: I get women either hating on me or hitting on me.
It's usually like, 'You made me so mad because of what happened in the experiment, but why do I still want to go on a date with you? Cosmo: Would you ever consider hooking up with any of these people?
But this was before the project launched publicly. I went on a few dates, many of which were terrible. But one guy I really, really liked pretty quickly. We maybe went on one date a week for about a month because we were traveling, this and that.
Then on our fourth date we went to Mexico.
Cosmo: How did the 40 Days experiment influence this relationship? Jess: I was always thinking of the future instead of being able to relax and enjoy the now. And that made dating kind of miserable. I really just let go after the project and it made dating fun again. I think not having expectations really helps relationships. Cosmo : Tim, are you jealous that she has a new boyfriend?
Tim: I wasn't jealous of him being in a relationship with her. I was feeling like you go through this profound experience with someone and then you kind of feel left behind when they're like, 'Oh, now I'm in love and I'm just busy with this other person. Cosmo: How did the experiment change your outlook on love? Tim: I realized that I did want to be in a relationship and I did want something meaningful. I think I always did. I think that's part of the reason I even got into this.
I think it got me back on track in a way.

I had a lot more criticisms about the concept when I was younger - that it was self-absorbed, that it was obviously a publicity stunt - but now that I'm a designer around their age, I have a lot more empathy for what they went through and the emotional turmoil that comes with opening yourself up to vulnerability, honesty, and publicity.
For this reason, I was surprised to find myself much more engaged with the content and story, and I was much more interested in what happened to the two of them I had a lot more criticisms about the concept when I was younger - that it was self-absorbed, that it was obviously a publicity stunt - but now that I'm a designer around their age, I have a lot more empathy for what they went through and the emotional turmoil that comes with opening yourself up to vulnerability, honesty, and publicity.
For this reason, I was surprised to find myself much more engaged with the content and story, and I was much more interested in what happened to the two of them after the experiment when they were free from arbitrary rules and structure. Unfortunately, the design and structure of the book layout was not up to par, requiring several page flips back and forth to get the chronology right.
It did not do justice to the designs as it should have. Nov 18, Jen rated it it was ok Shelves: nonfiction2-starrea ebook.

I enjoyed the "what happened after" but then that also abruptly stopped so there was no following the journey. Just Meh. Interesting Interesting read. I think they definitely got way too Freudian in explaining why things were the way they were, which wouldn't be a problem if all of Frued's work wasn't debunked.

This isn't bad, it's just NYC, especially Manhattan is a very specific mentality that doesn't extend out which hinders the relateability and ability to extrapolate their story or lessons. Jun 21, Kayla Burress rated it liked it. For being designers, you'd think they'd be more mindful of making an accessible format. Then again, maybe that's the issue; they focused much too hard on design rather than functionality.
Jul 04, Christy rated it it was amazing. I stumbled upon this book by accident at the library and it was so insightful! I recently went through a break up a couple of months ago and this book was really relatable. I found myself relating to Jessica and what she went through but it was refreshing to see a Male perspective. I never think about what the other person might perceive things and Tim was insightful.

I definitely learned from their experience and more about love and relationships which I hope to take with me in the future.

Short read, definitely worth giving it a shot if you're hesitating Jun 03, Debbie rated it really liked it. This book was right up my alley! I like experiments and relationships and to read and think about how people react in different situations. It was interesting to read about the different female and male perspectives and to see what the end result of the experiment was!
Sep 02, Diana Gabriela rated it really liked it. Loved the experiment and loved the book!
Definitely the design is the best part of it. Although I kind of suffer while reading each day's challenge and emotions it was the perfect book to read and question my love patterns, surely everyone's got one.

Sep 25, 40 Days of Dating Couple Endorse Lizzy Caplan, Paul Bettany for Movie Version Except when Jessica Walsh, a self-described hopeless romantic, and her friend Timothy Goodman.
I remember staying up late one night to read the journal entries on the website. Despite the obsession to read everything I could find about the experiment that night, it somehow slipped my mind until I stumbled upon a post or was it an article online saying that the duo were SOME SPOILERS AHEAD although it may not be considered spoilers given what's been available on the internet after the book's release I had read about the experiment when a friend posted a link about it on Facebook.
Did they kiss dating goodbye? '40 Days of Dating' couple reveals all in new book
Despite the obsession to read everything I could find about the experiment that night, it somehow slipped my mind until I stumbled upon a post or was it an article online saying that the duo were publishing a book about their journey. I knew I wanted for sure that I wanted to read the book. After a few weeks of exploring options to purchase it, I finally bought one copy from Amazon. It took me a few weeks after getting the book to read it. Once I started reading, I couldn't stop.
I also had a hard time resisting flipping to the back because I was so curious about the ending! In the end I just had to know the ending before going through all 40 days worth of journal entries. That sort of affected the way I read the second half of the journal entries, so for those of you who haven't read the book, please try to resist the temptation to flip to the back! The ending was a bit unexpected and I wish Jessica shared more about her experience with Zak, like how exactly they met, the dates they had, and how she was feeling considering that she met Zak within a very short time from the end of the experiment Book 2 perhaps?
The illustrations in the book are great and make the book even more entertaining and colourful.
Unfortunately some of the illustrations got cut off because of the formatting of the book. While the day journal entries benefit from being put side by side, the post-experiment entries were a bit hard to read because Jessica and Tim's entries ended on different pages and the dates were not synchronised.
For the most part of the day journal entries, I read from the left to the right Jessica's entry, then Tim's entryand only towards the end did I realise that it was more interesting to mix the order up once in a while so Tim's entry first, then Jessica's.
Funny how Tim and Jessica could perceive a date or event differently. I really enjoyed reading the book and could see myself flipping through it again in future. Mar 24, Sarah rated it it was amazing.
I'd already read the blog but knew that I wanted more. And boy, did I get more I find myself a little more each time I read through the experiment: much like most other women, I was biased to Jessie, because her story was my story, while Tim gave me an insight as to what my exes have probably thought. But the second time around, I identified much more with Tim.
This came as somewhat of a shock seeing as the first and second read through were maybe two weeks apart; nothing major had happened I'd already read the blog but knew that I wanted more.
This came as somewhat of a shock seeing as the first and second read through were maybe two weeks apart; nothing major had happened in my life between then and now. I wish all my friends would read this already so I'll have someone to talk to! But even more so, I hope this would strike a chord with the man who broke my heart.
We're both on both sides. Also, the layout of this book is so genius I can't even describe it. It perfectly matches how my brain processes information and didn't feel complicated at all which I know plenty of my friends would complain about if they would ever even pick up a book. This is an amazing study in sociopsychology, and I will carry it with me for the rest of my life.
I'm also grateful I read it while single; I'm pretty sure my analyses of this experiment would make any man run for the hills. Mar 09, Nicole rated it liked it. Earlier this year, I found out that it was published into a book, which is nice. So I got myself a copy of the ebook. Overall, I think the concept works better on the website than the ebook.
The formatting is sometimes off, and I can be nitpick-y about this on the ebook, at least; I can't say for sure how the printed book looks like. You also can't view the videos duhwhich are an excellent part of the project. However, I did like how there are additional things like the interviews with both Jess and Tim, and other people at the beginning of the book that you won't see on the site. Still, the core of the project is still there. I really enjoyed reading the journal entries and the side comments from Jess and Tim!
I feel like they became my friends after reading their thoughts on very personal things, like intimacy and childhood. If I'd give a Goodreads rating for the website, it would be 4 even 4. But the ebook only gets 3. Oct 23, Hi rated it really liked it. I randomly came across this book never having heard of the blog. To rate this book I need to divide it into two sections. The 40 days male female perspective, and the follow up. For me the 2nd half carries the book.
I went to the blog after reading the book, and the blog stops on day The book picks right up and cries on till about a year later. It also has friends thoughts on love in brief commentaries. They were so funny. While I really liked the book, I have to say by day 10 I was ready to I randomly came across this book never having heard of the blog. While I really liked the book, I have to say by day 10 I was ready to toss it! By day 15, I was aiming at a window. By day 20 I'm like finally.
If you feel the book is to slow at first I say jump to day 15, if after reading to day 17 you still feel the same go to day 28 and go from there. If you are still feeling like no skip to day 37, The follow up is much better than the blog diary imho. Here is the thing while I am giving this book 4 out of 5 stars.
