Here's what it's really like to date in different places across America
When Amy Sutton first started dating her now-boyfriend, they spent hours on end sending voice notes back and forth. Not texts, voice notes. Sutton would record these messages while cooking or cleaning, or when she was in the bath. To her, the exchange felt more intimate than texting, and gave her "a greater sense of who someone is, their sense of humour. These hours of endless voice noting were time well spent for Sutton — she and her boyfriend have been together for two years. I could've saved the world in that time," says Sutton. To many of us myself included the prospect of recording your own voice and sending it to a near-total stranger — or worse someone you really fancy — is basically the stuff nightmares are made of. But, among the less trepidatious daters, voice notes are all the rage right now. For these people, voice noting affords the chance to pre-screen a match to make sure they're the right fit personality-wise.
Dating is not exactly the same everywhere. There's no getting around it: dating can suck. More often than not it can feel something along the lines of awkward, forced, and downright confusing.
