31 Dates in 31 Days

I kicked off 2009 (and my 31st year) with a dating challenge that I hoped would teach me something about where I was going wrong in my relationships. I wanted to learn quickly and learn from the best. I developed an intense one month "master's class in men" and enrolled myself. My teachers: 30 incredible single men who were willing to take me on a first date and have a fun time in New York City.

My 31st date fell on Valentine's Day, 2009. With the help of faithful blog readers/voters, one man was chosen for an incredible second date to Broadway's hottest ticket in town and dinner at one of the Upper West Side's finest.

When I started this project, I had no intentions of finding a boyfriend. In fact, I had no idea what would happen. I just wanted to learn something. What I found was more than I could have ever imagined. (One of the "31 Dates" is now my husband!)
