Phone chat lines...anyone ever done it? Page 2 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
I don't even like talking on the phone to people I know. I'm not gonna pay good money to talk on the phone to people I don't like. Heck! I used to work in a Call Centre. I got paid to talk on the bloody phone. BLEH!

So whats the deal with all those hot women on the late night tv...saying "Call us!!"

They think you guys are dumb enough to believe THAT is who you will talk to on the chat line. Question is, what would women who look like that need with a chat line?

Didn't chat lines go the way of the Dodo Bird years ago? This thread started in 2006...and it was going away then, no?

Phone and online chat are useless unless they lead to a real world meet. For me, I have stopped messaging women, as most of the women on here just want a virtual relationship, and have no intention of having anything real. I just come now to have fun in the forums.

. Yes, online chat rooms pretty much killed phone chat lines, cheaper and easier to disconect. However, I am sure if you can find a phone booth somewhere you may see the number of a phone chat line scribbled on its wall, give it a try.

Back in the early 80's when I was quite underage I used to hang out on chatlines. There were dozens of them in Southern California. I used to fake my age, telling guys I was 18. I can tell you that nothing has changed over the years..all the guys on the other end wanted to masturbate or "party on the line" as they called it. The usual line of questions was how old was I and what were my measurements..that's all they wanted to know. Ha!

I don't think it would be good for me because I have a deep voice. It could cause all kinds of confusion. At work, 9 times out of 10 (literally), I'll be talking to a customer on the phone and it usually ends with them saying something like 'Well, thanks Buddy!' Telemarketers call me 'sir', and then get really rattled once I tell them I'm a female lol.

I thought they were only for young people. Are there people over 45? My older daughter used to go on a lot some years ago. She did meet a couple really good guys. After a couple years she got engaged to one of the guys. But it's her that ruined the 2 relationships. She is hard to get a long with. My younger daughter goes on some kind of chatline but she talks to girls & guys . The few she was to meet all cancelled. But, the girls are nice. If anyone knows, are there are men over 45 on there? I've struck out on here 4 yrs ago when I was on & now when I rejoined.

I met some nice people on Quest a phone line. You could sometimes tell a lot from someones voice and the way they talk.

Whatever for? No thanks, I think I'll just take your word for it.

Years ago I used the local chat lines frequently. I was rather shy.and I found the lines a great way to break the ice. I had a lot of luck:quite a few intimate encounters,made some good friends,had a lot of dates,and met my girlfriend on one. It was a good experience,and the costs weren't bad at all. These weren't the 1-800 or 1-900 numbers,but rather local numbers. A couple are still operating.

Phone chat lines also have escorts on them. It's free for woman and they lure men in telling them what they want to hear and get the man to their place then want $$$. True story from my best friend.

OMG does that even exist still?

I was maybe 19 or 20 when I tried dialing a local phone chat line. It was boring I have to say. I wasn't even talking to the person, but instead he would leave me a message, and i would listen to it and then leave him a message.

It was quite annoying. But thrilling at the same time cuz I would few guys liking my voice and messaging me! LOL


That's the old school way of chatting with ppl! I prefer not wasting my money on that and just join POF and browse through some really bad profiles and pictures! LOL

Personally I prefer the phone over online. If you're a superficial tit, yeah you might not be able to handle a great personality in a person you're not attracted to but for me, I was always like, "so what?" I haven't done it in years but then again, I've only been on one date in the past 9 months.

The most spectacular woman I ever met in my life came from a chat line. I still think about her everyday and it's been 15 years. Don't knock it.

Here's the difference----I can hear a persons voice, I can hear them pronounce their words, I can sense if they're smiling while they speak. I can genuinely tell when their passionate and I can tell when they're apathetic or just placating. There's also the abilty to experience the dynamic of conversation. Who controls it? Is it shared? Which person switches off on certain topics? Is the person an active listener? Are the attentive?

Onlineis impersonal. The written word is a difficult thing for some and easy for others. I write professionally so I can make a beautiful profile. There is almost zero individuality online.

Everyone starts out the same way: Uninteresting. Sure, it can be fun but...

I also know some interesting people and there's a great deal of money being poured into LavaLife Chat right now. I mean truckloads. Some of the finest women I've ever met I met through Telepersonals. It was also way more fun. Online dating can be a prison. You stay locked at home until someone likes you and then you decide to go out. If it doesn't work, you lock yourself at home until the next one...

They both have pluses and minuses... Chat is still my favourite.

Funny I just got nostalgic when I started to read about phone chat lines. Better yet...Remember Party or shared phone lines when there were like 10 people all trying to talk at the same time INSANE!
"I heard you on the wireless back in Fifty Two
Lying awake intent at tuning in on you.
If I was young it didn't stop you coming through.
Oh-a oh
They took the credit for your second symphony.
Rewritten by machine and new technology,
and now I understand the problems you can see.
Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.
Pictures came and broke your heart.
Oh-a-a-a oh"

The Buggles
Video Killed The Radio Star Lyrics
