40 Days of Dating
Two good friends with opposite relationship problems found themselves single at the same time. As an experiment, they dated for 40 days.
After watching a bit of Swoozie’s videos with Kayla about their challenge, I was directed toward the original experiment and was very amused. (I think a major part of it is that the website is beautifully designed, haha.) But anyway, I find reading different perspectives of two opposite people very interesting.
Don’t know why I would get embarrassed over it, but I did. Mostly because it’s 3am now and I’ve just been playing Sims all night and I don’t feel the least bit pretty.. however I do feel content. There’s this weird gratifying feeling I feel whenever I play Sims. Sure, there’s also that other feeling of disappointment in myself (because it’s finally part of the summer where I succumb to laziness, cravings… and staring at screens for hours) but Sims is great. Life is pretty good.
“You don’t measure love in time. You measure love in transformation. Sometimes the longest connections yield very little growth, while the briefest of encounters change everything. The heart doesn’t wear a watch - it’s timeless. It doesn’t care how long you know someone. It doesn’t care if you had a 40 year anniversary if there is no juice in the connection. What the heart cares about is resonance. Resonance that opens it, resonance that enlivens it, resonance that calls it home. And when it finds it, the transformation begins…”

“What is it like to have someone who knows your body better than you do your own, to have this person trace their finger down your spine and when they whisper three words you feel every hair on your body stick up in response, with the shivers going all the way into your heart and somewhere in your soul. What is it like to feels someone’s burning touch while they are just gazing into your eyes, to taste their lips, one kiss, a second, and one more after another and feeling like it’s the first time every time. What is it like to fall asleep next to someone on a Jack Daniels kind of Saturday night and find them drinking coffee right besides you the next morning?”

I think I have terrible luck. Of course I would get into two worthless arguments in one day. I’m feeling confused and really drained out, wondering how the hell things escalated so quickly. Overall, helpless and defeated. Like I’m always doing something wrong.
