In the span of one year, Holly Martyn did something that would make most people exhausted to even think about: She went on 100 ― yes, 100 ― dates. 

In 2014, after two divorces and a breakup with a boyfriend, Martyn said she was feeling sorry for herself. The single mom and former Wall Street executive was at a spa reading a magazine when she came across an essay by journalist Donna Freydkin that told the story of her falling love and getting married in her 30s, then getting pregnant, only to find out two months before her due date that her husband had a brain tumour, which eventually killed him. 

I Chose to Be Selfish in My Relationship and It Changed My Life

  I Chose to Be Selfish in My Relationship and It Changed My Life "Sweet, loyal, loving." These are adjectives that my friends and family usually use when describing me. Though I'm incredibly flattered that people close to me characterize me as this, let me tell you - these attributes can really bite you in the ass when it comes to love. When I'd put myself out there in the dating realm, it was a common reality for me to instantly become a total pushover. Time and time again, I'd find myself feeling isolated, investing too much of my time into my "other half," and ultimately getting my heart broken.

In the piece, Freydkin wrote about interviewing the late Joan Rivers shortly after her husband’s death, who, in typical Joan fashion, scolded her: 

“Would it kill you to put on lipstick?” she barked at me during another interview, somehow sounding maternal while giving me grief. “Go set up one of those online profiles, go out with 100 guys, and you’ll meet a good one,” she promised. “I’ll perform at your wedding.”

Reading that, Martyn thought: “There you go, 100 dates,” she told HuffPost. “Problem solved? I had to find out.”

“I’ve met wonderful and not-so-wonderful people all three ways,” Martyn said. “You just never know! Just show up.” Her best date was a romantic winter evening spent with a quarterback-turned-opera singer. She was cold and tired after a long flight, so he made her a roast chicken dinner. “There were red roses, red wine and orange cashmere socks that he pulled over my cold feet as he sang me songs,” Martyn said.

As much as fairy tales and rom-coms make us want to believe in love at first sight, we're pretty sure that's a myth.As long as you're going for the right reasons and not just to get a free meal, Seattle dating coach Kate Stewart says that it's 100% still worth it. "If there's enough doubt in your mind to potentially say yes, then it's worth doing the due diligence of going on the date and seeing if you have fun with this person, if they make you laugh, and if something could be brewing," she says.

Martyn said there were “way too many contenders.” One that stood out in a bad way was with a lawyer who spent the first half of the date going on and on about his ex-girlfriend’s weight-loss surgery ― and it only got weirder from there.

“Then he proclaimed he had ESP and knows when others are thinking of him, and finally, that he has a deep bond with a female wolf that he met at a wolf sanctuary,” Martyn said. “He was so moved by their relationship that he made a presentation on the she-wolf for the partners of his law firm.”

Dating with Borderline Personality Disorder: ‘I Was the Girlfriend From Hell’

  Dating with Borderline Personality Disorder: ‘I Was the Girlfriend From Hell’ ‘I was on an unending emotional roller-coaster’ It was Saturday night, date night: I was 21, and I couldn't wait to spend time with my new boyfriend, Steve. But when I arrived at his parents' house, he was still in the basement working on his computer and barely looked up at me when I walked in. 'Just a sec,' he said. As I stood there, I began to feel insignificant and stupid for getting so excited when he clearly didn't feel the same way about me. The panic was overwhelming. I got back into my car and drove laps around the neighbourhood, crying, until he'd sent enough texts apologizing and begging me to come back. A few days later, I was filled with self-loathing because I couldn't figure out why I'd reacted so strongly. We'd only been dating for a few months, and I felt like I'd already morphed into the girlfriend from hell. And that wasn't the last time it would happen. For the next seven years of our relationship, I found myself enacting similar scenarios over and over again. I was on an unending emotional roller-coaster -- cheerful and laughing, then raging with anger or mired in sadness. Any time I thought he had let me down in some way or that he didn't love me enough, I would throw things (a plastic pail at his car, a glass vase of roses in the kitchen), scream, cry and say horrible things. I would push him away with all my force, but what I really wanted was for him to love me and prove that he would never leave.

It turns out to be relatively well established, dating back more than 100 years to a book by Max O’Rell written in 1901, and the 1951 play The Moon is Blue. But does it stand up to scrutiny, or is it just a baseless rule perpetuated by men who want to justify dating younger, and less mature, women ?
