Episode 126 The Dating Challenge: 35 Dates for Her 35th Birthday – Interview with Katie Houston

Katie Houston is a thirty-something high school choir teacher who is passionate about education, writing, musicals, and human interaction.  She studied music education at BYU and the University of Utah and dreams of someday writing a book.  Her hobbies include singing with the Tabernacle Choir on Temple Square, crafting homemade cards, trying to look like she knows what she’s doing at Orange Theory Fitness, and watching crime TV.

In todays interview we follow Katie’s challenge to date 35 men in 3 months. This is how it got started:

She woke up early in the morning a couple days before her 35th birthday and spontaneously set a crazy goal: She was going on 35 dates in 3 months using social media to help connect her with new people. She launched her experiment by asking friends and family on Facebook and Instagram to set her up and she stayed active on dating apps. She also appeared on a Facebook live show called, “Friday Night Love” and discussed her experiment.

Her goal was about the journey and not the end result. She didn’t expect to fall in love, but welcomed it if it happened. She kept a journal of each date on her blog, “A Teacher’s Diary.” She called it 35 Chances, because she viewed each date as a new chance to learn something about dating. She chose to focus her writing on positive lessons learned rather than a dating critique. She learned a lot about herself, both good and bad, and met some very cool people.

Did she fall in love? You’ll have to listen to find out!
