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 to call people for dating instead of internet dating and dating apps?
There are a few reasons why people prefer talking to someone on the phone.
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!
