Brian

Tell us about today!

Today was a lot of fun! We met up with Emily and Jake (the other couple) and went to the aquarium. It was actually really nice to connect with them and share our experiences and I regret we didn’t do it earlier! They are awesome and it looks like things are going really well for them!

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

Something I learned tonight about Sarah is that she gets spooked easy! Not like scared, but in a jumpy sense... There were a few occasions tonight when either a leaf brushed her neck, or she touched an anemone that caused her to jump pretty good!

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

Seven. Tonight was fun! It started off a little awkward because I don’t think either of us knew how to approach meeting Emily and Jake. But after the initial awkwardness it became a lot of fun and chill. I think it was really good for me to talk to Jake and I hope Sarah had a good time connecting with Emily. It sounds like she did from our post aquarium conversation.

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

Seven. Still feel good spending time with her. Tonight she gave me some constructive criticism that I am very appreciative of. I’m glad she felt comfortable to say something. I sometimes tend to make jokes about pass disagreements but these “jokes” could very easily come off as passive aggressiveness, which is not my intent, but very valid. I’m glad she felt comfortable to say something and I’m definitely going to be more aware.

Today we went to the aquarium in Draper. We did a double date with the other 30 Day Bae couple. I had so much fun! I'm sad we didn't connect with them earlier and done a weekly double date or something. Emily and Jake were so great. It was good to get their perspective on the experiment and see how things were going with their relationship. I feel like they have a good perspective. We all talked about what we learned so far and they had great things to say :) We walked around and talked a lot. We quizzed each other about their "bae" to see how well we all knew each other. I feel like I know Brian pretty well, but I got frazzled when it was my turn so I feel like I sounded like I didn't know a lot about him.


We all talked in the gift shop for a while. Brian and Jake were off talking and Emily and I were talking. It was good to connect with someone who is going through this experiment too and share thoughts and experiences.


Afterwards, Brian and I sat in his car and talked. Brian is lending me a book he talked to me about the week before. It's about money and finances. He claims it's interesting but I don't know if I quite believe him yet. But I also haven't started reading it yet.

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

Brian hates olives and is scuba certified. He's gone scuba diving in Indonesia and Africa. I want to be like Brian when I grow up. He's traveled to SO many interesting places. He goes on one or two trips a year with a group of friends.
