The dating project
“This documentary opens a conversation that a lot of single people are wanting to be part of.
I’ve been having a wonderful conversation about it for years with students at Boston College, but the movie also does a beautiful job of showing the great human struggle that single people face day to day.
The film follows five single people trying to figure out dating in the age of social media, texting, hanging out and hooking up.
This bundle now allows you to purchase A Guide to the Dating Project as well as The Dating Project DVD for both group and individual study.
This may seem like an obvious parameter; however, in the world of “hooking up” many people do not know the intent of the other person with whom they are engaging in physical acts. She states that the date should only last between 60 and 90 minutes.
To combat this trend, Cronin began requiring the students in her class to go on a date. Cronin hoped her students would “experience the courage of stepping outside of the dominant social script of the hookup culture”. Cronin assigned this project, she had very few guidelines.
After receiving feedback from her students and seeing that they needed some guidance, Cronin created some criteria for a date to satisfy the requirements of the project.
Featuring Jason Evert and other leading Catholic authors, the guide is written to accompany the film and spark potentially life-changing insights and conversation.
It includes study questions and articles related to dating and discernment, as well as the “Dating Assignment” featured in the film.
