Apparently I have a really sexy voice. Like everyone else though I hate it when I listen to my own answerphone recordings or in work videos.

Mumbling is a big no,no for me. I'm partially deaf so we would end up writing messages to each other.

Its changed everything - he talks really quickly and mumbles!

Maybe he was............nervous.............?
Normally I'd say mumblers should just be shot. Saves time for everyone. But his mind, which writes the text, doesn't mumble. Does he have an overly large nose?

I'm not too bothered about the noise around the words but rather about the words themselves. Maybe I've been lucky enough not to meet ladies whose voices have grated too much. Having said that. I did meet one lady whose voice was cultured to the point of stilton cheesiness and my last gf's was borderline home counties chav but they're exceptions.

I was born and bred in Dartford so have been cursed with a northwest Kent accent. It doesn't matter how articulate I am, often Ts are dropped at the end of the word and words like chocolate sound like chocklit and horrible like horraball. Like most people, I hate the sound of my recorded voice judging it to be dull but I've been told it's nice to listen to. Tone wise, it depends whether I'm speaking from my chest or my throat, so it can be light and airy or deep and baritone.
