Conversation just for the sake of itPage 1 of 1    
This is a two part question. First, would you chat with a person just for the sake of of having a conversation. No thought of dating this person, just to have somebody to learn about?

The second part is, I'd like to know how many people have been able to find chat buddies.

I just has somebody tell me we can't be chat buddies cus they're not attracted to me.

Now I have another question from one of the responses, lol.

Wouldn't most of us prefer to to turn a frienship into a relationship, rather than just jumping straight into a relationship?

Of all the people I've met in person from here, about half listed "friends" or "e-mail/chat" on thier profiles and I'm pretty sure most of those people would never have talked to me if I had told them I'm not looking to meet. I learned long ago that what a person lists as to what they are looking for, means very little by itself.

I was just thinking about something, why I started this thread. Most people on here list all the same things (inc. me lol) in their profiles. A great person that's honest and fun. I was thinking, if I were a "great peson" how would I look for another "great person". I'd talk to people, lol. Was just wondering to myself how many "great people" leave a dating site because hey have a hard time just starting conversations. Male and female "great people".

Anyway, this was my deep thinking for the month.
