Things To Say To Make Your Chat Line Cutie Less Nervous
If you’ve been in the chat line game for a while now, you know that there are two types of chat line folks: nervous and confident. That’s really all there is to it. And, the difference between the two is huge in the sense that conversing with a nervous person is not always easy, especially when you are trying to flirt and establish a connection. If you are a loud and open person, this can feel like a drag. Add the fact that this is all being done by phone and you’ve got yourself an experience comparable to pulling teeth. In order to avoid the long pauses, frequent jittery laughter, and overall awkwardness, there are some things you can say to make the other person feel comfortable. Because, let’s face it, some of the best people don’t make the best first impressions over the phone. So, if you feel like your chat line flirtation is worth getting to know, but is painfully shy, try saying these three things:
“Phone dating is awkward isn’t it? Hopefully you’re feeling what I’m feeling!”
This is a nice way to break the ice by acknowledging how challenging phone chat dating can be for people. Not only does it throw everything out into the open, but it also shows your phone chat partner that he/she should feel safe and comfortable with you because you are both relatable and understanding. Leading with this will help your chat line honey relax and have an easier time having conversation with you as you’ve already established that you share some common ground!
How was your day today?
Ok, this may seem simple and even silly, but it’s extremely effective. With people who are nervous over the phone, you’ll want to lead the conversation without talking only about yourself. This will mean that you’ll need to ask questions. However, questions can feel traumatizing to shy people, as if they are being put on the spot and forced to find ways to impress you. Asking a simple question that doesn’t force another person to search their brain for the answer is another way to make him/her feel appreciated without putting him/her on the spot. It’s a nice softball question that will help the flow of conversation.
My favorite quality in a dating partner is their ability to listen…
Think about it, shy people are going to be listeners by default. In saying that you love good listeners, you are subtly complimenting your chat line partner without making it too obvious that you are directing the flow of conversation. You’ve made him/her feel good about himself. This may sound counterintuitive if you’re hoping for the conversation to involve less awkward silence on his/her end, but in fact boosting his/her confidence by acknowledging that ‘listeners’ are great types of people will likely push your partner to say more!
