times I am not sure if they are a man or a women because of the picture they post


So why not send a whisper and say Excuse me are you M or F ?
I was in the chat room yesterday because i sponsored there Bingo session and i was warmly welcomed
and chatted to so it is not as bad as people make out smile.png

Very new here so I did venture into a chat room, I was overwhelmed by the number of people chatting over each other, chatters seem to be a special breed, able to juggle lots of conversations in the air or ether should I say .
In a very cowardly fashion, I escaped, scared to death to enter that territory again. They were nice people, quite welcoming but too brisk for me.

I am with the majority on this, it takes me an age to type anything so prefer one to one chatting but this is not a criticism of chat, I wouldn't criticize it just because I'm slower than others.

If I asked everyone who does not have a picture, There would be no time to chat with anyone.

I am extremely reclusive in real life and I am not a person who will initiate a conversation with anyone, even with family get-togethers I find it difficult to participate in discussions. Mostly, I get talked over, and after a while I simply don't bother. I seem to be the same online. I have gone into the odd chat room on occasion and usually end up watching everyone else talk. I am never quite sure if my opinion on a topic would be welcome or if people would see me as being rude for butting in. So I don't say anything.
