Comedian Aziz Ansari has posted a subreddit
asking for relationship and dating experiences. Ansari and NYU professor Eric Klinenberg are using the subreddit as part of their research for a new book on modern romance in the US and elsewhere.
Topics include "Has anyone done an arranged marriage? How did that go?," "Have you ever fallen in with love someone you weren't attracted to at first? How'd that happen?" and "Has anyone hired a consultant to help you put together an online dating profile or worked with a dating coach? How'd that go?"
Y"ou know when you text someone you're romantically interested in and you don't hear anything back and then you see them post a photo of a pizza on Instagram?" Ansari explained in a statement. "That's exactly what I want this book to deal with."
