How To Improve Your Phone Communication Skills

By Brad Jeffries on February 11th, 2022 in Dating
Since 2020, people have been spending even more time on their phones. If you think about the course of history, there’s been a massive movement away from face-to-face communication in the direction of phone-to-phone. Hours and hours of communication happen through those little robots we carry around all day, so it only makes sense that you’d want to beef up your phone communication skills. Dating over the phone adds another layer to phone etiquette and requires more thought than the average conversation. And sexual activity over the phone is even more complicated!
There are advantages and disadvantages to this phone migration. On the one hand, we aren’t afforded the luxury of ready body cues. That can make conversation momentum more challenging. On the other, we are given a chance to polish what we put out into the world without the distraction of our appearance or the appearance of others!
Yes, it’s a lot to think about. But don’t worry, we are here to break it all down for you and help you put your best voice forward on the line, whether you are dating, having erotic chat, or just regular conversation.

Tip: Know your intention

When you’re about to chat with someone on the phone, you want to know what your objective is. Is it to phone date? Is it to have phone sex? You should always be aware of your needs when calling a chat line number so that you don’t waste anyone’s time and nobody wastes yours. If you go in without knowing what you want, it will lead to bouts of awkwardness and lulls, which you don’t want.

Tip: Speak clearly

Nobody wants to try to guess what you are saying. Annunciate and speak as clearly as possible. This goes for the way you pronounce your words as well as asking for what you want. Your phone date is not a mind-reader, so be clear in every way.

Tip: Listen

Listen intently, especially when you are chat line dating. Try not to dominate the chat by interrupting. Instead, allow your phone date to get their thoughts out and then respond to what they say! This requires active listening, which goes beyond just hearing the words. You want to make sure you are making an effort to understand your phone date.

Tip: Be respectful 

Phone etiquette is similar to real-life etiquette. You should always treat others the way you want to be treated and respect the boundaries that are set during your phone date. If your phone date doesn’t want to have phone sex or discuss a particular topic, make sure to be open-minded and offer your respect.

Tip: Empathy and sympathy

Being understanding and putting yourself in someone else’s shoes will get you very far in the phone dating game, even as it applies to phone sex. You need to be aware that the person on the other end of the phone is just as nervous as you are about your phone date! Be understanding of how they feel and don’t shut down anything they reveal to you. When a phone date gets vulnerable with you, that’s how you know a real connection is being made.
