How to Avoid Awkward Silence In a Chat Line Phone Call

If you’ve never used chat lines before, you may be feeling nervous about trying Talk121. It’s an especially relevant feeling these days because we don’t really talk on the phone as much as we used to, and it can seem a little scary. But you will find that talking on the phone is actually one of the best ways to get to know someone before you potentially waste your time and go out to meet them in real life. Here are some ways to avoid any awkward moments in a chat line phone call!

  1. First of all, you should have a few questions in your mind before hand. These can be common questions about the person’s family, their job or their hobbies. Whenever you sense there is a pause in the conversation, you can use one of these questions you are holding in your mind to start a whole new thread of conversation.
  2. Keep the conversation going by providing thorough answers to your chat line partner’s questions. One word responses aren’t the best choice here. If you keep the conversation going, you will find that it quickly stops being a question and answer session and turns into more of a natural conversation, if there is some chemistry.
  3. Telling stories is one of the best ways to avoid awkward silences at all during a chat line phone call. Stories are usually long, and they also encourage the other person on the other end of the line to chime in with their own stories about the same topic. Telling stories about your life is one of the best ways to get to know someone, and have them get to know you.

Talking on the phone is rarely awkward, and even less so when you are enthusiastic about talking to people and getting to know them on Talk121’s phone chats.
