I get asked a lot of what if questions in the comments, especially about how many dates, meeting someone, etc. So here’s how I see the possible outcomes.
1. I don’t make it to 50.
This would be disappointing, but also very validating, because isn’t my main premise the severe lack of men who will date women like me? In some ways if I do find fifty, then um, clearly there’s something wrong with me when there are guys but I’m still single.
2. I do make it to 50.
Yay! Milestone achieved! Much learned about myself and men and how this thing works at the moment.
3. I meet someone I want to exclusively date before 50 is up.
How is this not a win situation? Definitely the least likely scenario, but still. I imagine it is highly complicated by the context of the project, but I’m hoping that if this guy exists, he’s going to be able to look me in the eye and say hey, take a break and let’s try this.
