I’m obsessed with this project!  I am in love with the two people and secretly hope they fall in love and get married… Just found this a few days ago though, do they normally not post on weekends? They didn’t post yesterday or yet today…

@canuckandakiwi:  I actually just did a search for this, because if a post didn’t exist I was going to make one! I am soo obsessed with this project, I almost wish I had found out about it after all the posts were made so I wouldn’t have to wait.

 

@wandering_gypsy:  They only post M-F, so lame!

I’m really interested to see where it goes, and if it kind of points to the fact that putting ANY two people together will lead to real feelings developing, or if these two both deep down wanted to see where it could go, and made up this experiment as an excuse to get closer to one another in a “safe” way. 

I was talking to a friend about this, and she told me it reminded her of an article she read about arranged marriages. A lot of times, they are actually happier, because they are “stuck” together, and both try harder to adapt and mold to suit their partner. Interesting stuff!

@canuckandakiwi: @jessicadarling:  I think they had feelings for eachother beforehand otherwise I dont know how they would even come up with “hey, let’s date!”. lol But I really hope they fall in love, I think they are actually perfect for eachother if they could just get out of their own ways!

@canuckandakiwi:  I’ve just started reading it after following the link you posted – i’ve spent nearly 2 hours straight getting up to date, only up to day 20 – i really like it, it’s very interesting! I hope she gets her headaches sorted out and they end up madly in love!!

I like it but am super annoyed that they are “on hold” right now.  I think it’s becasue they are in talks about movie rights?

While I’m enjoying it, if I’m honest I don’t see them getting together.  A some point early on she said that her mom told her something along the lines of “if it’s right, it’s easy.”  Nothing is easy with these two.  And there don’t seem to be enough butterflies.  HOnestly, I think he likes her, but not enough.

@cbgg:  I was just about to post the same things–1) they don’t seem to get along all that well/things aren’t easy and 2) I think she seems to be more into him than he is into her.

I think in the end they’ll end up reverting back to being friends.

@canuckandakiwi:  I just checked. Interesting. I’m not sure if I should post anything that could be considered a spoiler or whether we would need a new thread for that.

Don’t post any spoilers!!!!!!



I just started reading and I have to say that by day 4 I am laughing because he already writes about how “annoying” it is to have to see her everyday! LOL spoken like a true Bachelor!

 

 

I say post a new thread to discuss the ending, so those of us who haven’t made it there and enjoy the process 🙂
