Seven years ago, I was 33, single and miserable. I was a successful advertising project manager living in London and an accomplished professional woman, but inside I was a well of sadness.
Having been single for almost seven years, I felt like I was a complete failure. Somehow, I managed to scare every man I met with my ‘kamikaze’ approach to love: you’ll want me or I will humiliate myself trying. How come I seemed to have control of every other area of my life except this one? One day, after another embarrassing failure to find love, I decided it was time for a significant change. I recalled a conversation with a work colleague from a few years before, joking about evaluating guys using Key Performance Indicators and pie charts. It seemed like a silly conversation at the time, but I now saw it in a completely different light. What if, as an experienced project manager, I could use the methods I was familiar with at work to find the right man for me? That was when I came up with The Love Project: a project management-lead quest to find love. I gave myself one year to bring order into the chaos of my love life and to be in a committed relationship.
The Love Project chronicles the steps I took, and the wild, poignant and often humorous results. I aimed to be honest and open with myself and the reader, maintaining a story-driven conversational tone that explores elements of my past and present that held me back. I confronted head-on the problems and dilemmas of the modern dating life that many women can relate to.
