“The Dating Project,” a documentary from Paulist Productions, Mpower Pictures and Family Theater Productions, is now available on DVD and Digital Download from Pure Flix.
The film is a faith-based, insightful and often humorous approach to dating for young people in today’s society. It was shown in theaters nationwide April 17.
Professor Kerry Cronin of Boston College noticed a few years ago the decreased dating trend among her college students. In an attempt to help college students understand dating and the importance to develop meaningful relationships, she assigned an extra-credit assignment asking students to go on what is considered a “traditional date” for 45 to 90 minutes with a person of legitimate romantic interest. The student had to pay and make the invitation in person as well as be alcohol- kissing- and sex-free, arranged within three days of asking a person out with a simple plan for the date and not have the other person decide what the date activity will be. From this, “The Dating Project” was born.
The film follows Cronin and five single people, ages 20 to 40, in their own pursuit to find true love and meaningful relationships.
After the assignment, Cronin’s students write about how they felt about asking and going on a “traditional” date.
After the film was shown in theaters nationwide, young adults from the Diocese were asked their thoughts. To read what they had to say, click here.
