When dates go wrong… RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!
**Winner of the NYWIFT Outstanding Creator of a New York Series**
The Maker's Inspiration
“Run for Your Life” is a fiction show motivated by my personal quest to understand both the absurdity and complexity behind the/my search for love in modern technological times.
And I know I’m not alone in both the PAIN and COMEDY of online dating.
I’m asking, “How can we do it better?!”
Technology can help you find love, but why can it inspire cardiovascular activity?
WHY ? (1) No more rules = upside down town
Although technology has made us way more connected, it has also made us think ANYTHING GOES. Now, this CAN be a great, but it can also turn the honeybees around. Rules help us live in a shared reality, but there’s no more town hall or church center that says this is it! Hence, bad behavior can create upside down town.
WHY ? (2) Stranger dating = stinky petri dish
Online dating is mostly strangers colliding their varying degrees of fetish, freak, size, lies, mental illness, beliefs, drinking problems and desire for love, sex, marriage or distraction.
WHY? (3) Dating surplus = disposable diaper mentality
When I first started online dating, I treated men like disposable diapers. I was careless with myself and them. Thankfully, this eventually changed.
Run for Your Life
If you’re truly looking for a connection, The accumulation of the “I can’t believe this is happening again,” feeling will inevitably inspire you to work it out like Forrest Gump.
