On the eve of her 31st birthday, after yet another painful breakup, Tamara Duricka Johnson decides it’s time to overhaul her dating habits. When a friend jokingly suggests that she embark on a “dating project,” inspiration strikes: in honor of turning 31, she'll go on 31 dates in 31 days — and resist the urge to turn each date into her next relationship. Instead, she’ll have to wait until the 31st date to pick one of the 30 men to go out with a second time. With each date, Johnson learns something about herself. Some experiences are awful, but others are amazing — and all of them help change her attitude about not just dating but people in general. In the end, though, she realizes there’s only one man of the entire 30 that she can see herself marrying — and one year later, she does. Chatty, fun, and confessional, 31 Dates in 31 Days is an entertaining journey that offers astute insights into the modern dating scene.

About the Author

Tamara Duricka Johnson is a journalist, blogger, and freelance writer with a background in television news. She was a writer for ABC's Good Morning America and has been a newscast producer at KATU-TV in Portland, Oregon, KSL-TV in Salt Lake City, Utah and WSLS-TV in Roanoke, Virginia. She is a member of the Writers Guild of America.

As a motivated undergrad, Johnson rushed through Roanoke College in just three years. Later, she received her master's degree from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, where she was awarded the Lee Bollinger Fellowship. Johnson first started writing about dating in New York while she was in grad school: her master’s project, a radio documentary called Celibacy and the City, was an examination of the dating lives of single Mormons in Manhattan.

Johnson is an avid movie and theater-goer who takes pride in finding good deals on dates and travel adventures. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, who she met during the life-changing blogging/dating extravaganza that inspired this book.
