Tamara Duricka Johnson

After a long string of breakups, Tamara Duricka Johnson decided it was time to adopt a risky set of rules for her 31st year: learn how to enjoy first dates and avoid jumping into another tumultuous relationship. She vowed to say 'no' to relationships and, instead, would enjoy her successful single life in New York City by taking on the ultimate dating adventure: 31 Dates in 31 Days . From cynical New York City dater to hopeless romantic, Tamara's 31 dates helped change her attitude about men, dating, love, and life. She kept dating one of the men she met during her project, and in one year's time, she went from blogger to bride. She married Evan Johnson (“Date 31”) on January 16, 2010 (one year after she began the 31 Dates project). Tamara has worked as a freelance writer and producer for ABC's Good Morning America and Good Morning America Weekend.  Her book, The Dating Project: 31 Dates in 31 Days, will be published by Seal Press
