Chat lines are an alternative way to meet people of the opposite sex by talking with other singles or in some cases, chat about anything you like. Chat lines are generally free depending on the service, while others may require payment. In any case, they are a fun and interesting method of meeting people or gaining information.
Types of lines Many chat lines are advertised as ‘free phone chat lines,’ ‘local chat lines’ or as ‘phone dating lines.’ There are other live chat lines available as well. However, most chat phone lines are centred on dating or meeting people with the same interest, such as ‘free gay phone chat’ or the ‘lesbian chat line.’ There are also trivia-related chat lines and information-based phone lines as well. Where to find Some services will advertise via local television stations or papers. Many however, can be located online by searching ‘phone chat lines' or ‘your area phone chat lines’ to find a list of locations. Others will advertise in magazines, normally in the adult variety. You will find these normally in the back with the classifieds or sales information.
Fees and other information
Are they really free?
Some, yes but you will have to endure advertisements when you call while you wait to be connected. Some even toss them in while you are in conversation but will prompt you with a polite message.
Most however, has a membership charged or demands some fee once they get you hooked or talking to someone on the other end of the phone. Be careful as they will include a small fee on your existing phone bill, based on how much time you talked but this will add up quickly.
Are they really local
This is the BIG question. Not always, this is why you have to read. If there is no one else in your area on the line or in the network to accept calls, you will be connected to someone else.
Therefore, in all cases, no, they are not but the chat service is protected because they will disclose it to you, in their terms and conditions.
Are they really single? More than likely, they are. Are they really interested in dating you is the better question. Like the charged adult line, where you can listen to a recording or engage in phone relations with a person of the opposite sex, dating lines are much the same. Not in all cases of course, but a percentage of them engage in having men or women talk with you to entice you pay or etxend the conversation with no intention of meeting you. Why? Because they are paid to do so.
