John and Jane. Day 3.
“It's a lot more difficult than I imagined.”
Tell us about today!
We had people over at my house for a Halloween/Pumpkin Carving contest.
What did you learn about them? What did you learn about yourself?
I learned that Jane’s love languages are quality time and physical touch.
On a scale from 1-10 how would you rate your time together today?
Six. Our time together was great. Jane is really easy to be around and we have a lot of fun together.
On a scale from 1-10 how positively do you feel about your relationship at this point?
Four. If I was rating our relationship as friends I would give it a 10. As far as romantic relationship I put a 4 because it just seems fabricated.
How are you feeling about this experiment?
It's a lot more difficult than I imagined. I think my expectations going into this experiment was that I was going to be set up with this girl who I would fall madly in love with because we would have so much in common and our personalities would compliment each other so well and we would become the next Jay Z and Beyonce and we would be happily ever after. I think those are unrealistic expectations and i have found that it is a little different dynamic because I knew her before and never chose to pursue her. It didn't cross my mind, but now I find myself wondering, if I was going to be interested in her, would I have already tried to make it work and ask her out? I don't know. She told me tonight she looked at both of our personality types and doesnt think we are a match. I actually think we are a really good match and I know we will continue to be great friends. The conversation with Jordan really helped. He told me to just try and use these 30 days to try and win her over and pursue her. That breaks it down for me and gives me a little more structure in how I should approach all of it. I have no problem doing that it just feels a little insincere, again because no one wants to be assigned a companion. I believe that being pushed out of your comfort zone is where you can really grow and learn. This experiment is very out of my comfort zone. I'm excited to see what I learn.
