Brian

Tell us about today!

Today was therapy day, so we met up at Jordan's and then afterwards she came over to my house and we had dinner and played some games with some friends.

What did you learn about them? What did you learn about yourself?

Therapy has really been a great thing, it's good to have a moderator there to ask questions and it's a space for us to ask questions and process different experiences together.

On a scale from 1-10 how would you rate your time together today?

Seven. It was fun to have her over and play games together. She is really funny and got along great with my friends. We are in the home stretch!

Tell us about today!

Today we went to our counseling session and then went back to his place to make dinner and hang out with his roommates. We made Trader Joe’s baked Mac n cheese. He cooked SPAM to go along with it. I didn’t want to watch him cook that so I went and played their double shot arcade basketball game by myself in the living room. Two of his friends came over later and we all played jackbox tv.

What did you learn about them? What did you learn about yourself?

Brian likes salty meat chips (aka SPAM) with Mac n cheese. It looked so gross I couldn’t watch him cook it haha. I went in the living room instead. I tasted it for the first time and it wasn’t bad but I just can’t get the words salty meat chips out of my head. (His roommate called them potato meat chips and now it can’t be anything else).


One of my goals for this experiment was to learn how to set boundaries in relationships. Something I took away from today was that it’s important to set boundaries, but you need to be sure you continually set/reinforce them as well.

On a scale from 1-10 how would you rate your time together today?

Six. It was fun but I’m feeling a little anxious going into the last week. I want to talk to Brian to make sure we’re on the same page about things but I didn’t get a good chance to today. I’m also a little nervous about the logs being posted.

On a scale from 1-10 how positively do you feel about your relationship at this point?

Five. I still feel positive in the sense that we have another week to work on our goals and hold each other accountable to them.

On a scale from 1-10 how would you rate your chemistry with him/her?

Five.
