Jamy Madison is not a real person, but rather, the name that an anonymous blogger adapted for her social experiment, in which she uses Tinder to go on 40 dates over the course of 40 days. Her blog is appropriately named 40 Dates & 40 Nights.
If my blog had a theme, it would be something like that. I love the idea of doing some sort of experiment and blogging about it every step of the way. It would reveal one’s change in opinion about a dating app like tinder.
Jamy’s writing is easy to follow, as she recounts each date in perfect detail, with conversation that flows and realizations that strike you at the core. Each date is different from the next, and tells a multi-sided story about what happens when two people meet through what is known as a “hook-up” app.
Some tidbits from her writing:
You know that feeling when you’ve been caught doing something really bad, like cheating on a test or a boyfriend/girlfriend? When a wave of panic and nausea and guilt just knocks you off that surfboard you’ve been gliding along on, pulls you under, chokes and suffocates and drowns you? Yeah, that’s what I was feeling.
She comes to great conclusions:
Not only had I made a new buddy, one I could play cops and robbers with and who would one day hopefully join me at Dimples in a horrible rendition of “Don’t Stop Believin’,” but he had helped me to solidify one of my key arguments about Tinder theory: that it’s not all about sex.
I encourage you all to take a look! Everyone can find some way to relate to this, and every post brings a refreshing perspective on the ho-hum world of online dating.
