There are two things that I appreciate a lot, especially coming from people with whom I have chatted for many weeks, one of them is when they say that they enjoy chatting with me and the other one is when they say they miss chatting with me (happens when they don’t find me online often). I’m not talking about an “enjoyed talking to u but have 2 go now bye”, no no no. It goes more like this: we’re in the middle of the conversation and the person tells you that he enjoys chatting with you very much, that’s very nice. The “I miss u” is almost guaranteed to make my heart melt especially online or as offline messages, always sweet!
My “relationship” with Pablo (
I guess I’m getting really boring.
I have learned that while chatting with someone you must always know when to leave. If the conversation is fading, and the other person is asking you questions like “what else?” or “are you there?” then you know it’s probably time for you to leave. At that point there aren’t many good reasons for sticking around and trying to find something to say. Obviously the other person doesn’t have much to say to you either so say bye and use the stealth settings to appear offline to that contact and go chat with someone you haven’t bore to death yet (or the other way around).
I’ve added so many people to my list lately that I’m having a hard time keeping track of who’s who. I have made a few groups and put the people I talk to the most in the first one and so on, I also made a group for each person with more than one ID. Hopefully I have the archive; in case I forget someone’s asl I can always check before saying Hi! Still those measures are insufficient and browsing through the archive can be tiring.
I told him my complete name and he thought my surname was funky! He does have his way with words! Pablo is so cool!
Met a chava from Mexico. Well she didn’t stay around long. I wonder why girls are seldom interested in chatting with me and even less interested in adding me to their lists? I would be grateful to anyone who can give me an answer to that question (please?).
I’m meeting many Latino Americans those days. The only problem is that most of them don’t speak English and my Spanish is just so poor. I said the weirdest thing to one of them; I said “eres mi”. I didn’t even realize what I said until he asked me, puzzled: “I am you?”, that was funny! I guess I was really distracted! Well it just sounded nicely I didn’t really think about it.
My knowledge of
Not a good chatting day, I did not have much time for that activity today, but still….
I talked to Antonio again (Dominican living in CT,25). He had excuses for not letting me see his picture even though I insisted, he also wanted to see me again –and he did-. Chatting in Spanish can be painful especially when I’m busy and that the person is using slang. I still don’t get him he’s weird.
Met a new Indian (Pavan,24) from Andrha Pradesh (again), but he works in
Didn’t have a chance to put my hands on my “unseizable” Venezuelan friend (Pablo,25), he kept going online and offline –You just wait until I get my hands on you!- .
Met an Italian (Fabio,37), the talked started nicely until finally he reveals himself as an XXX guy -that’s how Sunny would call him!-. Definitely not for me but he still managed to remain polite.
I met someone who told me he was Indian but strangely he did not ask for my name, therefore I started having doubts. So I told him, ”How come you haven’t asked for my name”. His reaction was surprising, “so sorry I forgot to ask you”. Well I had no doubt about him being Indian after that reply. About that habit of Indians to ask you for your name, Ravi (Indian in
Today I met a new Dominican (Antonio,25). He sounded interesting and interested, had no problem with me being black –so he said-. He asked me whether I was married at some point in the conversation and when I said no he asked whether I had children, I’m wondering, what difference does that make to him? Don’t know. In the end he didn’t add me on his list or asked me to add him. But he did say he would show me his picture tomorrow, if he does he will deserve me writing about him again, personally I don’t believe he will, we will know soon enough, patience. I know almost nothing about him, not even what he does for a living.
I met my new Venezuelan (Pablo,25) contact again. He is irresistibly funny! What can I say; he really can make me laugh. He’s also nice, surprisingly nice I must say, and not ugly (cute). Don’t bother ladies, I won’t give you his id :))! It seems that we are at the same stage of life, not completely out of school but already working -in connected fields-. He has this quick and efficient humor, guaranteed to make you laugh or smile at least. Unfortunately, my Spanish is not getting much better with him, we only chat in English –so far that is-.
Chatted also with my enthusiastic Indian friend (Sunny,25) from Mumbai (
I met a number of people –men of course- who stopped talking to me when they knew my race, others stopped when they saw my picture :p , I didn’t know I could scare people away that fast! Girls, women, they usually don’t stick around too long, it starts nicely the first time and maybe a few other times also then soon we have nothing to say to each other, I’m still not interesting enough for any girl a woman to want to chat with me for at least a month or two.
My techy Indian friend in
According to me a Chatteress is a female (master) chatter.
I’m out there using yahoo messenger 6 and meeting people from all over the world (almost), and I’m telling you about it!
