Keep The Spark Alive Whilst Social Distancing

An image of a brunette woman indoors at home on grey sofa using mobile phoneSocial Distancing is difficult enough as it is, being apart from friends and family. Being apart from your partner can be even more difficult as you won’t get that close contact and intimacy that you’re used to.

So how can you keep that spark alive whilst isolated separately?

We’ve compiled a list of suggestions of things to try.

Video calls

These are important as you can then see each other and it’s easier just to have a normal chat.

Some options offer in-house games as well, like Houseparty, which offers a couple of games that you can play with 2 or more people.

Cook together

You can use these video calls to do things together like cook a meal. Decide in advance what you’re going to make so that you can both get the ingredients and then make and eat a meal together. Light a candle to make it a little romantic!

If cooking isn’t your thing, order the same type of takeaway together, or order a takeaway for each other!

Play some games

Find multiplayer online games or games on your phone you can play against each other. Some apps have built in games you can play whilst chatting. Set up a games night where you have some drinks and snacks and spend some time “together”.

Watch a movie together

You can pre-arrange a time to sit down and watch the same movie (or TV series), pressing play at the same time. Just make sure you can agree on what to watch beforehand!

Get frisky!

Being apart doesn’t mean you can’t be intimate with each other. If you’ve never tried it, now is the perfect time to try some phone sex or sexting to keep that fire burning and the spark alive!

Don’t worry if you’re single and don’t have anyone to virtually date at the moment, Chat2Date is the UK’s busiest chat line so go chat to singles from all over the UK on your phone!

5 Top Tips For Texting Girls

Texting girls is not something that necessarily comes naturally to guys. Well, men are from Mars and women from Venus after all!

We’ve got some great tips to help you get that conversation started and keep it going when you’re texting someone new.

Don’t leave it too long between messages.

It can mean the difference of keeping the girl interested and her losing interest completely.
Equally though, don’t reply too quickly! If you’re always replying immediately then she might get a bit suspicious – why are you always free and why is your phone always stuck to your hand?!
You need to find a middle ground and pay attention to when she replies as well.

Make sure your spelling and grammar are up to scratch.

Take your time over the reply and make sure you’ve not used any ‘text speak’ or misspelled anything. Try to match her intellect and sophistication with your replies and keep an eye on how she texts as if she’s not so bothered about it, then you can mirror that.

Try and use emojis.

It’s a great way of ensuring your point is read as intended. There’s no tone of voice by written text so using an emoji can portray that you’re joking about something or that it’s a nice message rather than something rude or inappropriate. Just don’t use too many or you’ll look a little over excited.

Try to avoid texting for the sake of texting.

If you’ve genuinely got things to chat about, that’s great, but don’t force it. There’s no point going into detail about something she’s really not interested in, or talking about the weather when neither of you care! Try and find things you both like to keep the conversation flowing.

You can still flirt when texting – be a little bit cheeky!

You’ve got to make sure it’s well received however. If she’s not interested and not flirting back then don’t continue texting, but if you get the green light, go ahead! Emojis can be very useful here, especially the winking face!

Fancy putting some of these into practice? Text girls now with Chat2Date!

Great Date Ideas For Autumn

Man and woman on date making heart shape with their hands
 

As summer draws to a close and the temperature starts to drop, what sort of dates are there that are still romantic? We’ve listed a few date ideas below.

Wrap up warm and go for a walk in your local park.
As the leaves start to fall and crunch under your feet, the colours become magical. Going for a stroll in a local park can be really romantic. You can also snuggle up together to keep warm!

Find a nice pub with a log fire.
You might be a little cold if you’ve gone for an autumn walk so find a lovely local pub with a burning log fire to warm yourselves back up again.

Cook dinner together.
This may not sound exciting but cooking dinner or baking something warming together can be a really fun activity. You could cook a nice roast dinner or bake a lovely pie for dessert. Working together can strengthen your bond and you may even learn new things about each other!

Watch a movie.
This doesn’t sound like a great date idea, however as it gets colder outside it gives you an excuse to snuggle up together under a blanket, maybe even with a hot chocolate.

Read a book.
If that’s not your thing, why not swap your favourite books and read together?
If you both enjoy reading, recommend your favourite book and read each other’s together. It might not sound like a ‘date’ but you can pause after chapters and have a discussion about what’s happened and your favourite parts.

Go on a bike ride.
Going on a bike ride is a great way to have fun together. Find a nice cycle trail and stop off somewhere along the way. The exercise will keep you warm!

Go to your favourite coffee shop.
Something as simple as going for a coffee together can get you out of the daily grind and give you some quality time together. If you want to, you can order each other a new drink to try and have a little fun.

Make the most of the autumn weather before it gets too cold and go on some dates together.

If you’re looking for that special someone to go on these dates with, check out Chat2Date today!

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.

Why Should You Call Our Chatline?

In today’s society, the internet is readily available on our phones and people are just the click of a button away.

So why are people still using phone chatlines for dating instead?

You can hear what someone is like better than through messaging

No, you can’t see a picture of them but people always put their best ones online anyway! With phone chatlines, you can hear what a person sounds like and it’s much more personal than talking to a computer or phone screen.

You can explain yourself better

Messaging someone (especially when you don’t know them very well) can get complicated when you don’t know their sense of humour as messages can get misconstrued and misunderstood, whereas when having a casual chat on the phone you can detect someone’s tone and intent.

You can spend as much or as little as you like

With dating sites, you have to pay (usually around £20) on a monthly basis. With Chat2Date you only pay for what you use! It’s totally under your control how much you spend. The cheapest way to call is to set up a pre-paid card account where you get a set amount of minutes for every top up and this is charged to your card. Alternatively you can call from a landline for just 13p per minute (plus your phone company’s access charge) or from a mobile for just 25p per minute with no hidden charges.

There are many reasons why people may prefer one over the other, but don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it! Give Chat2Date a call today!

Top Ten Tips For Dating On Our Chatline

Don’t fancy online dating or haven’t had much success? Give Chat2Date a try and chat with people on your phone!
 

  1. If you don’t like the sound of their voice, don’t be put off! People can sound totally different on the phone to how they do in person so if you get on and want to meet up then go for it!
  1. If you do get to the point where you decide you want to meet up with them then please be sensible about it. Tell a friend where you are going and make sure you meet them in a public place at a sensible time of day.
  1. Don’t give out your personal information on the chatline. If you decide you want to meet up with someone, make the arrangements through the chatline – it’s better to be safe and cautious when meeting people.
  1. Set up a personal mailbox so people can leave you messages when you are not online. It’s easy to do and you get your own account number and PIN so you can access it any time.
  1. Record a good introduction message about yourself. Try not to make it too long but you want people to like the sound of you so make sure to highlight your best qualities!
  1. Too shy to speak to people directly? Then send a voice message to their mailbox first or even try our text chat service. People text much more than they talk on the phone so why not give it a try?!
  1. A picture is worth a thousand words, so why not upload a picture of yourself so interested parties can download it and check you out?! Please do keep them clean though, otherwise they won’t get past the moderation team.
  1. If someone is being nasty, obscene or rude on the service then please report them to the moderators and bar them from contacting you.
  1. If you call the service a lot then you might want to try setting up a pre-paid credit card account which will allow you to call the service at a cheaper rate so you’ll get more talk time for your money.
  1. Remember to have fun and enjoy it. Dating shouldn’t turn into a chore. Chat and be yourself and this could help you find that special someone.
