Hi Everyone! It’s Biff and Julie again, the Acme Chatters. This week’s topic is telephone chatlines versus internet dating. Which one is better?
We both have a lot of experience with telephone dating and internet dating. The simple answer to the question is neither is better, they are different. The big difference between the two is the central “selling point”. On the internet the selling point is the PICTURE. Just try and get a date online without a clear picture. On the phone, the selling point is your VOICE.
Julie: Looks are important to me too but that’s only part of it. I need to find the guy attractive but I also need to know more about him… not just that his arms are huge and works out all the time. I can learn more from listening to a guy’s voice then a picture.
Julie: Well, I can’t tell the number of guys I’ve seen online that just must not care enough to find that one good photo. I’ve seen some really bad ones….
Biff: I can sort through a lot more women online. Over the phone it takes more effort to evaluate them.
Biff: One thing I like about using the phone is that I can get an immediate response good or bad using chat. Over the internet it can take a long time. You send out a message and don’t get a response for days.
