Chatting is a skill very few people are good at. Chatting is like writing a poem. A good chat can reveal to you so many things that the person on the other end knows. The only thing that you actually need to do is: win the heart of the person you are chatting with. It is actually a very good idea to do a little chatting with someone of the opposite sex. It makes you very keen to read a mind of a girl if you are a boy and vice versa. But how do you actually win someone’s heart in a chatting session? The technique is pretty simple if you are good at applying it while chatting with someone.
There are a few basic guidelines for getting engaged in an impressive online chatting. I will try to cover all I can in this small article on online chatting. First of all, ask for the person’s nick-name whom you are chatting with. A nick name is usually a bit short and is adored by its holder. Say there is a very beautiful girl whose mood alters a lot. She prefers having a nick-name like “Daffodils” in her chatting profile as it suits her lifestyle (sometimes beautiful sometimes withered). Use nick-names while chatting with each other. Always have a separate ID or an ID which does not reveal your real name to the masses while you are chatting online. If you trade online never disclose your real name to anybody in a chat room.
Next thing is to get going with the casual chatting. Start asking a few general questions about the person you are chatting with. Ask your chatting companion various things which he/she would like to answer. Keep the chatting session interesting. Keep on constantly building a good reputation with your chatting friend with words like “Oh! So you are a designer”. People feel very happy when they get such appreciative comments from the person they are chatting with. Do not mingle with the personal life of the person you are chatting with. It is considered as bad manners. A good chatting session should be a conversation which is in present tense.
Use beautiful words and phrases to impress the person who is chatting with you. There are too many cool smileys which make chatting online a very happy experience. If your chatting companion feels uneasy with a particular topic, drop it. Do not force someone to interact with you in a chatting session. Remember, “Chatting is made for entertainment and not for spying”. Keep the chat interesting so that your chatting companion does not chat just because he has nothing else to do. The more you entertain your chat friend, the more will your chat friend entertain you. It is mutual take and give. Whatever you give, the same shall you reap.
End your online chatting session with a good climax. Be kind to the person you are chatting with, throughout the session. Use as many smileys as possible. There are too many smileys in the chat room which denote all type of expressions. If you use them well, it will leave a mark of impression on your chatting friend.
As far as the chatting services are considered, there are many people who love Yahoo chats as compared to the other chatting services. Yahoo Messenger is exclusively built for having an online chat. I haven’t checked the other ones yet but I don’t think that they support as vast a number of smileys and options that Yahoo Messenger supports.
Do not share your loneliness or failures with others in a chatting session. Instead, use the chat to come out of any depressing feelings that you had had before entering into it. Never think that the person chatting with you is just like you and will be interested in everything that you like. If you keep speaking about things that please you the most, you are missing the whole point of online chatting. You need to chat about something which both of you are interested in. Only then will it be called as an impressive chat. Keep the attention of your chatting companion engaged throughout the chatting session. Have an impressive chatting online.
