By Daily Mail Reporter. Two friends, one a hopeless romantic and the other afraid of commitment, have embarked on the ultimate dating test: each other. Jessica Walsh, 26, and Timothy Goodman, 32, both designers based in New York, have been friends for four years; but after finding themselves single at the same time, they decided 'dating' each other would be a worth-while experiment.
Did anything interesting happen? Truthfully, I am quite nervous. However, I know that when an opportunity scares me, I must go for it.
So why is it that the friends-to-lovers paradigm bears such perennial relevance? And does it work IRL? They found that, on average, the couples had known each other four months before dating.
Goodman prefers to date casually, sometimes seeing several women at the same time. Walsh, on the other hand, is a self-described "hopeless romantic" who jumps too quickly — her words — into relationships. But the two also have a lot in common.
Dating is confusing. Dating your friend can double the mystery. So, why not make an art project of it?
This just in: dating is hard. Scratch that. Dating used to be hard; back when boy met girl and girl agreed to go steady.
Merely one month after signing with evil agency overlords CAA, the duo that made you hate love have sold the movie rights to their 40 Days of Dating blog to Warner Brothers. Upon signing with the Death Star, blog co-creator Timothy Goodman made repeat assurances to me in that he and co-creator Walsh would not just be selling out simply for the sake of the entertainment business coming knocking, yet here we are in a little over a month. After a whirlwind tour of television and movie studios, the notoriously on-again off-again best friends decided the feature route was the best way to go, despite a seminal 40 Days rom-com a lready existing miss you Josh Hartnett!
