Indianapolis (August 20, 2013) — As if putting one’s heart on the line weren’t audacious enough, writer Sarah Rose is going one step further, putting her love life online—and print—in a new column and blog for The Saturday Evening Post.
Dubbed “My Year of Dating Dangerously”, the column chronicles Rose’s plunge into dating in her late ’30s. Her self-deprecating wit and willingness to share her most humiliating romantic mishaps promises to appeal to readers young, old, single and taken alike.
Rose describes the project, in which she pledges to go on one date (blind or otherwise) per week for a year (or until she meets Mr. Right) as “a schlep.” She admits it replaces her once-careful search for someone who will make her laugh and swoon with a “carpet bombing” approach.
The Carrie Bradshaw of the 2010s, a cast member on the reality show Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys and author of For All the Tea in China (Viking, 2011), Rose is a regular contributor to the Wall Street Journal. She is also single, gentlemen!
“My Year of Dating Dangerously” and several other blogs hosted on the newly redesigned Post website are attracting a 21st-century digital audience. Rose’s blog will provide readers regular updates on her dating experiences between issues.
Rose’s first column appears in the September/October 2013 issue of The Saturday Evening Post, available on the newsstands of Barnes & Noble and other retailers. Readers can follow Rose’s trials and tribulations at saturdayeveningpost.com/the-dating-project.
