Brunette woman smiling, leaning against a wall on the phoneChatlines have been around for a long time and even with the introduction of online dating and dating apps, it’s stood the test of time.

Whether you’ve used a chat line before or not, our top 5 tips will help you get the most out of dating and phone chat and boost your chances of finding someone special.

  • Record a decent introduction for your voicemail box. You’re trying to get people to like the sound of you so make sure you highlight your best qualities! Phone chat should be natural and you should focus on what you like.
  • You can tell a lot from someone’s voice. You’re likely to get a reasonably good sense about who they are over the phone. It’s much easier to connect that written down messages. However, if something doesn’t feel right, don’t pursue it.
  • Be sensible about meeting up. If you decide you’re getting on well and would like to meet up, make sure it’s in a public place and you tell a friend where you’re going.
  • Don’t give out any personal information. When chatting to someone, don’t let them know personal details before you’re comfortable. Arrange to meet through the chat line (following the above tip) and then decide if you’d like to pass on your phone number etc.
  • Have fun! Dating isn’t supposed to be a chore, it should be enjoyable. Just be yourself and make the most of your time chatting to someone. This will help you find someone special

Why Talking On The Phone Helps Your Relationship

Whether you’ve been together for a long time or are just embarking on a new relationship, make sure you talk on the phone regularly, don’t get comfortable always communicating by text.

One of the most prominent issues when text messaging is misinterpretation. All you are presented with is some text on a screen. There is no tone, no volume and it’s much harder to understand what someone may mean.

If you talk on the phone, you are able to hear the mood someone is in and how they are coming across. This could help avoid any misunderstandings which could lead to arguments.

We know texting is really convenient but with autocorrect and the possibility of spelling mistakes and abbreviations, what you want to say may come across totally different to someone who is reading it. It’s much easier to get your point across when you can have a real-time person to person discussion as you can ask questions and get immediate answers.

Phone calls can strengthen your connection with each other, not only in new relationships but with long standing ones too.

Hearing each other’s voices is much more intimate than viewing words on a screen. If you know them well enough you’ll be able to hear certain cues in their voice so you know how to react to what it is they’re saying.

You’re also more likely to be giving them your full attention – or at least more than you would be if you were texting – showing that you care about them and are interested in what they are saying.

If you’re at the beginning of a relationship you are able to get to know someone much better by talking on the phone. Texting is so impersonal; you are unable to get your personality across in a text. If you talk regularly on the phone you will get to know each other’s sense of humour and how they are feeling.

One thing that can also be a major issue for some people with text messages is waiting for a reply. Some people will see it as similar to having a face-to-face conversation, where you take it in turns to reply to each other, but others don’t see it like this and can take much longer to reply without realising the other person is waiting. When talking on the phone you’re going to get an immediate reply as the person is mostly focusing on you, rather than doing other things at the same time meaning they might not reply immediately.

So whether you’re dating or married, chatting on the phone has huge benefits for your relationship!

Give A Good First Impression On Your First Date!

Everyone wants to make a good impression on a first date. Read our tips and secure that second date no problem!

Be on time.

It’s rude to be late but being late on a first date is definitely not going to win you any brownie points. Fair enough if you have a valid reason but make sure you let them know and tell them why and if you can, roughly when you think you’ll arrive. Definitely don’t cancel on your date unless you absolutely have to, otherwise they will be unlikely to give you a second chance.

 

Dress appropriately.

If you’re going to a nice restaurant, don’t turn up in shorts and flip flops! Likewise if you’re just going to a café for a coffee, there’s no need to wear a suit!

You don’t need to spend hours choosing an outfit but your date will appreciate you making a bit of effort and shows that you’re serious about your date.

 

Make eye contact.

You’re much more likely to connect with the other person if you make eye contact. They’ll know you’re listening and are interested in what they’re saying, rather than looking around the room and not paying attention.

 

Ask questions.

You need to let your date know that you’re interested in them and the best way to show that is to ask questions about them. Only ask things that are relevant and that you genuinely want to know. There’s no point getting into a deep conversation about something you know nothing about. Keep the conversation light hearted and get to know each other.

Also make sure you listen to their answers and don’t keep talking about yourself!

 

Don’t have your phone out.

You’re probably only going to be with your date for a couple of hours for your initial meeting, to suss whether you’re interested on taking it further. There is no need to keep checking your phone – your date wants your full attention. Put your phone in your bag/pocket and only look at it when you absolutely need to.

 

Be mindful of your manners.

Not only do you need to be aware of your manners with your date, you need to make sure you’re polite to everyone around you. Your date will be watching how you handle yourself and if you’re rude to waiting staff, they won’t be impressed. Treat people how you want to be treated and you’ll get more respect.

 

Pay them compliments.

If you’re interested in your date and would like to see them again, compliment them. Tell them you like something they’re wearing, or that they have lovely eyes. Something that simple will let them know you like them and if they like you back they’ll return the favour!

Stay Safe When Meeting Someone from a Chatline

Chatlines are one of the most popular ways to meet people nowadays. To ensure you keep yourself safe when you chat, we’ve shared some of our tips below.

Always trust your instincts. If something doesn’t feel right, trust your gut feeling. If someone is asking too many questions or asking things you aren’t comfortable with then tell them.

If someone immediately asks for your contact details or wants to meet before you’ve decided whether you might like them, this can be a red flag – if you’re not comfortable with it then don’t meet them, or tell them you would like to get to know them a little better first. If they agree then maybe they’re just a little keen, if they get aggressive or upset that you won’t then you already know you made the right decision.

If they ask you for money or want you to buy them something, they are unlikely to be genuine and just want something from you, especially if you’ve never met.

It sounds obvious but never send anyone money. It’s so easy to get caught up in the moment and feel like you trust someone and have a connection but always use caution when people have unusual requests.

Be cautious sending out personal information. When you’re getting to know someone, sometimes you talk about things you wouldn’t necessarily talk about with your friends. Be aware of how much detail you’re telling someone you don’t really know.

It sounds obvious but never share your bank details, card numbers, passport or ID details with anyone and be aware that if they are asking about family history and ask for your mother’s maiden name or the name of your first pet – scammers can use this information against you.

Try not to drag out how long you’re talking before you meet.

You can only get to know someone so much over the phone. Once you feel comfortable talking to them, arrange to meet in a busy public place and let people know where you are going.

On the other hand, you are also under no obligation to meet them, regardless of how long you’ve been chatting. If you feel they are puttin you under any sort of pressure to do so, it might be best to move on.

Scammers are unlikely to meet up with you in real life and meeting is a great way to find out if there is a spark between you and you want to continue getting to know them.

When you do arrange to meet them, make sure you meet in a busy, public place and don’t accept a lift. There’s no need to put yourself at any risk.

If your date offers to pick you up, you can politely decline. If they are genuine they will understand your reasons. Never tell your address to someone you’ve only just met and don’t know very well.

Don’t drink too much when you’re on a date, especially  first date. Drinking can lower inhibitions and impair your judgement. You want to be on full alert when meeting someone for the first time and also want to set a good first impression!

Never be afraid to leave if you feel uncomfortable. You don’t owe your date anything and your safety is more important than anything else.

Never take your date back to your place or accept an invitation back to theirs. You need to get to know them and build up trust before letting them into your home or being alone with them.

Stay safe when dating with Chat2Date and report any suspicious behaviour.
