Matthew quit his job and set out to date one woman in each of the 50 states. According to the NY Post, the 25 year old is just two states away from reaching his goal. We spoke about Matthew this morning on the Ethan and Lou Show and we astonished to learn that he's racked up over 500,000 Tik-Tok followers by documenting these dates on the social media platform.

Immediately I felt compelled to cruise through Matthew's Tik-Tok @50dates50states to see if he'd been on a date with a Connecticut lady, and he had. There were two videos from the date, one was taken on a park bench, as the young lady gifted him Polish candies.

In the second video, you can see the two went ice skating at CT's XL Center.

@xlc_pws Have you seen the Connecticut episode yet? @Matt Wurnig #50dates50states #connecticut #hartford #hartfordwolfpack #ahl ♬ ESCUBIDUBIDU - Boticario

I could not find the young ladies name but I'd love to track her down and book her on the show to find out why someone would want to do this? Is it just a fun adventure, something you'd never done before? Was this an attempt to co-op some of Matthew's internet fame or was the goal to truly find love?

Whatever the case, she has a very CT vibe about her. The outfit screams CT lady and so does the gift. Based off of the very limited time we see her on screen, I will guess she is from Greenwich or New Canaan, CT.

As for Matthew, he seems like a nice enough young guy. None of the videos I saw seemed to be anything but polite and innocent. He also insists on picking up the tab on dinners and activities, telling the Post: “I make sure that I always treat my dates and pick up the check. I was raised to believe that the man should pay for the first date."

Below you can hear the Ethan and Lou Show segment about Matthew's creative idea. This segment happened on Wednesday (9/7/22) in the 6 o'clock hour.

5 Signs That Prove New York is Outrageously Funny

I grew up in New York State, and I think it contributed to my sense of humor. Recently I took a trip to the Watkins Glen, NY area with my wife and children. We had a lot of laughs and some of those giggles came right from the signs we saw in the Empire State. These are five of the signs that caught our attention, and proved New York is just a funny place.

4 Things CT Residents Should Know if They Love to be Naked

According to World Population Review, the State of CT Defines it's clothing laws in the following way:

Public indecency (Class B misdemeanor): A person is guilty of public indecency when he performs any of the following in a public place: 1) An act of sexual intercourse as defined in subdivision (2) of section 53a-65; or (2) a lewd exposure of the body with the intent to arouse or to satisfy the sexual desire of the person; or (3) a lewd fondling or caress of the body of another person. "Public place" means any place where the conduct may be expected to be viewed by others.

But that is boring and difficult to understand so I came up with four more things CT residents should know if they love to be naked.
