Good Morning America: 100 Dates of Summer
San Francisco woman Elise Moreno is vowing to go on one hundred dates over the next few months, and is calling her project 100 Dates of Summer. It was featured on Good Morning America. While Elise Moreno hopes to learn more about herself through the process, some worry that the project might lead to negative emotions and feelings.
GMA: Dating Self-Exploration
Elise Moreno admits that she’s been a “serial monogamist,” and is now single for the first time in six years. Her 100 Dates of Summer project isn’t about jumping back into a relationship. In fact, on Good Morning America, Elise Moreno said, “The goal of this is not to find a boyfriend. It really is just exploring myself and getting to know other people.”
Good Morning America: Blogging, Dating Rules & Meeting Dates
Elise Moreno is blogging about her dates on Tumblr, and even posting videos and pictures from her dates. Elise Moreno has put some rules in place to make sure she keeps herself safe, and sticks to the plan for 100 dates. She can go on second dates, but they don’t count towards the total number of date. Elise Moreno also said that she has a two drink rule for herself to make sure she stays safe.
Elise Moreno meets her matches on OkCupid.com, and said she’s only had about three bad dates. She said everyone she goes on dates with knows about her project, and she’s not trying to hide anything. Elise Moreno added that she’s not even trying to get free dinner.
GMA: Risk of Rejection
Relationship expert Paul Carrick Brunson said that 100 dates will inevitably lead to some rejections, but that doesn’t seem to bother Elise Moreno. That’s not the goal of her project anyway.
Elise Moreno started the project two months ago, and has already gone on around 30 dates. While she’s hopeful to make it to date 100, she said the project is more about finding her own voice in dating.
