At our increasingly semi regular meeting, I floated the idea of taking over my beautiful friend Grant’s tinder profile for a month if he let me buy his beer. He refused, which is obviously bullshit, but it got me to thinking; why? Why wouldn’t he want one of his best friends who only wants his never ending happiness to manage his love life? No one knows what’s better for him than Sean(who would obviously help) and myself, so why would he refuse?
It’s pretty obvious, let me count the ways:
- Grant is afraid of being happy
- He doesn’t want to find forever love in this lifetime
- He’s rightly suspicious he’ll die of a sex overdose
My commitments conservatively, on what he’ll get out of this:
- 3 first dates in this month
- 2 second dates
- The greatest trust fall experience he’ll ever have
So what does the world get out of this?
I’ll blog every interaction of this experiment. The world will watch Grant meet the dozens of women of his dreams by way of the clever wit and prose provided by his partners in blogging and he will of course have a beautiful life experience that he can write about, of course from the bed of his new soulmate that he’ll meet probably just hours after letting us use his account.
Now I don’t think he’ll be super interested in this, so i started this petition on change.org. Let’s just assume he can’t say no if we get 100 signatures. Hell, I think 10 would be more than enough.
Come on Grant! Do it for love!
