Thirty Days
By BT Urruela

Gavin Mazzarelli is a struggling writer with a complicated past, who is reeling from the loss of the only woman he’s ever loved. More than a year after the breakup, he’s still suffering major heartbreak and a serious case of writer’s block. In an attempt to help him out of his funk, Gavin’s best friend and fellow writer, Bobby, sets up an account for him on the new dating app SwipeDate.

After a few unsuccessful dates, Bobby challenges him to thirty more dates in thirty days. If Gavin can complete the challenge, Bobby will give him a check for twenty-five thousand dollars. Despite his ongoing substance abuse and mental health issues, Gavin agrees.

Does Gavin have what it takes to complete the challenge? Or will the trials and tribulations of modern dating prove to be too much?
