Dating Chat Rooms: Fantasy or Reality? Perhaps Neither!
Chat rooms are an Internet phenomena that has exploded in popularity over the years, substituting for, and in some cases, even replacing the more traditional venues for socializing, such as the bingo parlor, church social, teen club and crafts clubs. Kids, teens and adults participate in the chat room scene. One type of chat room that’s popular with teens and adults is the dating chat room.
So, what’s the attraction? How can you ‘date’ through cyberspace? You’re never going to actually meet a live human being this way, right? Are the dating chat rooms just a way to kill time in an entertaining manner? Let’s take a look at this strange phenomena and the possibilities.
Teens tend to gravitate to these chat rooms for the purpose of doing a little harmless flirting with their peers of the opposite gender. Most don’t take the people they ‘meet’ very seriously, but it does fill up an hour or two between homework assignments. Frequenting the dating chat rooms for teens does provide them with an opportunity to try out their best lines and gage the reaction they might get in real time at school.
What about adults who go in for this type of cyber-socializing? Some may be the shy type, hoping to hone their social dating skills in preparation for the real thing. Others, newly single again, may come to these chat rooms out of loneliness or a freshly bruised ego, seeking affirmation of their desirable qualities that no one seems to have taken notice of lately. Still, others may actually be so naive as to think they’ll meet that perfect someone.
However, the typical teen or adult visiting the dating chat rooms is well aware of the predator syndrome and the dangers of arranging an in-person meeting with a cyberspace personality, no matter how attractive they might seem.
So, what makes this type of chat room so hugely popular? While people may fantasize over the handsomeness, beauty or intelligence of their cyber-date, most realize it’s just a game, with little basis in reality.
The most obvious conclusion is that the dating chat rooms serve as ‘Dating 101′, for the inexperience, timid, or lonely people who want to brush up on their dating ‘skill set’ before approaching people they can see in the real world. These chat rooms also serve an entertainment purpose for many participants. Who’s the best comedian? Who’s got the fastest comeback?
One thing is certain – dating chat rooms aren’t going away anytime soon. Our advice? Exercise prudence and enjoy what they do have to offer – nether fantasy or reality, but nonetheless, educational to some and good, cheap entertainment for others.
