Who is rasheeda dating
“We had put together a pitch at dinner, and there were 14 women at dinner, two were married and the rest were single, and a lot of us just didn’t know when the last time we went on a date was,” Harrington told CNA. ” After hearing about Cronin, Harrington and her team decided to feature the dating assignment in their new film “The Dating Project” – part dating how-to, part dating documentary.Besides Cronin’s dating assignment, the film follows five single people of varying ages and backgrounds who are looking for love – two college students, Matt and Shanzi; Cecilia, a 20-something living in Chicago; Rasheeda, a 30-something living in New York; and Chris, a 40-something from Los Angeles.Cronin asked her students if graduation meant some difficult conversations with their boyfriends or girlfriends – and she got blank stares. ” Further conversations with students proved to her that this group of seniors was not an anomaly, but the norm.“(They) were just really stellar people, beautiful inside and out, and had all kinds of charisma and everything and almost none of them had dated at all in high school or college,” Cronin told CNA. “I started talking to them about hookup culture and how that had impacted dating, and what I realized was that the dating social script was sort of gone,” she said.At one point, she expresses dismay that she can’t seem to find a man who shares her values and wants something out of dating besides a sexual encounter.Harrington, herself a Catholic, told CNA that faith wasn’t necessarily meant to be a central theme of the film, but faith and values are a topic that inevitably come up during the dating process, and each person in the film talked about it to the extent they felt natural.“I think it’s just as difficult for Christians as it is for anyone else.” Both Cronin and Harrington said that dating sites and apps are not bad in and of themselves, but they should be viewed as a tool.
While her students all thought it was a good idea, none of them had asked someone on a date by the end of the semester.“Dating, at least here at (Boston College) has kind of a broad, uncertain, ambiguous definition,” Matt says in the film.“Definitely hooking up is more common on a college campus,” Shanzi adds.What the film does show, Harrington said, is that Christians are not really any better at dating in the modern world than anyone else is.“It’s very apparent that even in the Christian world, in this area of life – dating and relationships – we’re just as lost as anyone else, we’re really not leading the way,” she said.
