Dating is hard. On that, it seems everyone can agree. Dating app fatigue, a loneliness epidemic and shifting relationship norms all make the modern romantic landscape tricky to navigate.

Dating is difficult for everyone – one report from the Pew Research Center found that 47% of Americans say dating is harder today for most people than it was 10 years ago. But according to a 2022 report, 63% of men under 30 in the US describe themselves as single, as opposed to 34% of women in the same age group. The survey also found that the number of single men who want to date has dropped from 61% to 50% since 2019.

So we want to hear from men of any sexual orientation. How do you feel about dating today? Is it easy or difficult? What challenges do you face, or do you find it straightforward? What are you looking for and how confident are you about finding that?
