Jessica Walsh and Timothy Goodman were friends who decided to try dating each other — and chronicled the whole thing
After a whirlwind tour of Hollywood's top talent agencies, "40 Days of Dating" creators Jessica Walsh and Timothy Goodman have signed with CAA for representation in all areas.
Walsh and Goodman's website, FortyDaysOfDating.com, recently went viral, attracting Hollywood's attention in the process. The New York-based duo are now fielding interest from both film and television producers looking to use their story as the basis for a movie or TV series.
Walsh and Goodman were good friends who each struggled to find the right mate in Manhattan. Goodman was afraid of commitment, often juggling several women at once, while Walsh is self-described "hopeless romantic" who was always looking to find "the one." They decided to try an experiment and date each other, setting strict rules for the relationship.
The couple agreed to see each other every day for 40 days and go on at least three dates a week. They also had to see a couples therapist once a week and take one weekend trip together. Not only did Goodman and Walsh document the entire relationship and fill out a daily questionnaire, but they promised not to date or have sex with anyone else.
