As a straight woman, there’s not much insight I can provide into the gay dating scene. So to balance things out, here’s some advice from Flirt.com on how to succeed in their gay chat rooms. Enjoy!
After a long day at work, it’s only natural that you are going to feel exhausted and need a way to wind down. While your friends may urge you to come out and party, you might be feeling more inclined to stay inside and relax. As great of an idea as they may be, you’ll probably get bored and may be looking for someone to talk to. That’s completely understandable and you are not alone. Millions of people sign onto Flirt.com to check out their Gay Chat Rooms to find someone interesting to talk to.
With that said, because there are so many people in these Chat Rooms at once, it can be overwhelming and you might feel like you just disappear into the crowd—especially if you are new to gay chats in general. Don’t worry because we’ve got a few tips that will help you stand out and be noticed in the fast paced world of chat.
1. Use Your Words.
One of the best ways to stand out from the crowd is to use your words to draw attention. We don’t mean you have to be rude or crass, but show that you did pass high school and have the vocabulary of an adult, not a sixth grader.
Besides having a strong command of English, you should also be flirtatious when you are chatting. Normally when you are talking to someone in person, you can rely on your body language, tone of voice, and facial expressions to get your point across. With chatting, you have to rely on your words and emoticons, so be sure you are fluent in emoticon rules (for example, you don’t want to overdo it!).
2. Create a Bit of Mystery.
People love someone who is a bit mysterious, both in life and in chat. So if you are trying to draw attention to yourself, you can do that by not delving too much into your personal life. Sure, you can talk about your general interests, likes and dislikes, but you don’t want to go into much detail. You can hint around things, be evasive, and even use a bit of sarcasm to get people intrigued and wanting to know more.
3. Have a Broad Set of Interests.
If you are trying to stand out from the crowd in a gay chat, you have to have a wide set of interests to talk about. No one wants to have the same conversation over and over again, so it only makes sense to have a large catalogue of things to talk about. With this in mind, it doesn’t mean that you should change who you are or brush up on topics that are of no interest to you. People can pick up on things like this and it will only put a sour taste in their mouths.
With these three simple but effective tips, you won’t find it difficult finding someone to talk to in the gay chat rooms (or any chat rooms for that matter!).
