Are you fed up with being treated like a second-class citizen by your sexual prospects?

We are too. Something clicked this week––maybe it was the realization that all of the neglect, unreturned phone calls, meaningless hookups and not feeling fully satisfied––that something was just not right.

After some discussion regarding relationships, we came to understand that as two independent college women in the prime of our dating lives, we should not allow ourselves to enter into the negative relationships zone. We are intelligent, outgoing, creative and motivated women who do not need to put up with being treated poorly.

Is it too much to ask for a mature relationship based on mutual respect without the seriousness of being in a relationship? We are looking to have some fun here.

We decided we could not stand this bullsh*t a minute longer––it was time to take matters into our own hands. Sitting in the dimly lit corner of a favored local coffee shop, we formulated a plan of attack. We needed to change our strategy when it came to dating.

The Challenge: Ask a guy out on a date by the end of the week. The only rules set were that the candidate must be someone we haven’t gone out with before and we would have to report any results, no matter how embarrassing, to the world of elephant.

The Challengers: Two like-minded, hopeful and the slightest bit crazy 22-year-old women hoping to get past the relationship funk they are stuck in. Lindsay the laid-back environmentalist whose wild side is sure to attract an interesting dater and Hayley, the blossoming philanthropist, whose alluring black rimmed spectacles call for an intellectual and spontaneous dater.

Optimistic and excited we took the week by storm. What is the worst thing that could happen?
