A few days ago I sent out invitations to the future members of the Dating Brain Trust and, I am happy to report, there has been a great response! People seem very eager to help in this project which is at once thrilling (great to know so many people care about my welfare and want to help) and slightly pathetic (they agree that I need the help).
At any rate, I am grateful and very excited to get this project started to see how they do.
Their first task is to define the parameters of the Dating by Committee project. There are three “rules” so far:
- The Brain Trust should be anonymous. Their identities should secret so that followers of the blog are kept free from bias (as in: “Well, of course your mother would tell you that!”, or “Your ex-boyfriend is just jealous.”)
- The dates will be labeled D1, D2, D3, etc. (Assuming I go on multiple dates- you see I really am an optimist) to protect their identities.
- The Brain Trust will overrule public opinion. Sorry, followers, but these people know me and that is part of this experiment.
