Back in 2013, Tim and Jessica’s 40 Days of Dating took the world by storm. This January, a good friend of mine and his friend decided to try the same experiment. Jonathan is an Art Director and Joy is a Creative Manager. Both live in LA. Friends, they decided to transition gradually into dating, trying it for 40 days and writing about their experiences. Their story is currently on day 7, and it’s my favorite post thus far because it’s honest, raw, and intensely relatable (for anyone who has ever struggled with commitment and not getting answers, or lack of commitment and communication issues, respectively).
Also? Since they’re both artistically inclined, their accompanying illustrations are wonderfully quirky.
