What '40 Days of Dating' Got Right About Millennial Relationships

Chances are you've heard of the social experiment 40 Days of Dating. Twentysomething friends Timothy Goodman and Jessica Walsh decided to spend 40 days attempting to create a functional relationship with each other, even though they were coming from opposite backgrounds: she's a serial monogamist who's continually rushed into love, and he's a commitment-phobe who's bounced from woman to woman. The two attended relationship counselling and set out clear rules from day one to make the experiment as stringent as possible, even though it sounds like the plot of a subpar romantic comedy. They then blogged, in detail, every single day, and their every thought, over the course of the 40 days.
