And sometimes I write about sillier things like the difference between dating in small-town, Indiana versus Chicago. Important stuff here people. #not really
Big Obvious Difference No. 2: There are fewer bars. Fewer bars mean fewer options for first dates, which means more chance of running into previous dates when you’re with your new date, which means serious awkwardness. Of course, there are not just fewer bars but also fewer coffee shops, grocery stores and falafel huts–meaning you WILL run into some ex-date at some point every week. The plus side of this is you get used to the awkward; in fact, you embrace it. Your past will show up in your present on Friday night, so you learn to treat your past with a little more kindness and grace.
P.S. This is what I got when I Googled “dating in Indiana.” Seems about right.
