Chat!!
More like discovering a chat consists of 'two words'.
Perhaps a Room titled >> "Painting by Numbers" would be popular. :woohoo:

Now. Where is my Tin Helmet and Flak Jak. B)

Most of the time there are just one or two people talking about nothing really and then there is the hello, hello, hello, goodbye, goodbye. It's a toss up between staring at a chat room or watching paint dry.

I do try the chat rooms but give up after a while as they make me feel more lonely than I already am! the regulars seem to have a form of banter going on, if not a regular after the hello's thats it find a corner and just look on I can not help this for myself small talk is far from a thing I am apt at! and this saying they have of just jump in makes little or ne difference.:S

I've rarely tried but when I did I couldn't keep up. As in real life, I much prefer a quiet one to one sitting in a quiet corner away from everyone where you can hear each other speak and really get to know each other.

Busy chat rooms are difficult especially if there is a group of chatters who know each other well

Pick a room that has just a few people in say hello get to know people yes it can be mundane at times

but if its serious you want then use this .................................. the forum lol

Not at all, just start talking. Some people are "chattier" than others, I think that's a factor.

Totally overwhelmed. Far too fast for me to have any kind of meaningful participation.
Only tried it twice. First time for about 5 minutes, second time for about 20 minutes. I found that I do not like one line responses which seem to be what is required to "keep up"
I tend to write more, which takes a little time. Got lost. Also noticed other users becoming confused with the fast pace of the format.
A great outlet for those who enjoy it. Not knocking it at all. Simply not for me.

The chat rooms are where you come in and let your hair down or pulling at someone's if you dont have any...Even though most of the "conversation, is made up of Hi, Bye, lol, Wb and hb's, some serious communication does take place just as it does in a large party..and there will be the odd snub, the occasional snide remark, the irreverence: but hey its a chat room not Sunday school or a Parent teacher association and definitely not court hearing...more of a Town Hall, maybe?

I played a lot of on-line war games decades ago and the typed chatter was fast and furious. Then came Skype where we could shout and yell.
I can't keep up with social banter in chat rooms so never go there.
