New to gay chat? Here’s 7 tips to get you started.

Congratulations - you’ve found out how easy it is to start using FCN’s free gay chat and you’re ready to meet guys online. However, the whole online gay chat world can seem a bit daunting to newcomers. You’re probably asking yourself: how do I make sure I don’t come across as clueless? Never fear. Follow these 7 communication tips and make a great impression every time you use our gay chat rooms.

  1. Don’t be afraid to flirt: The great thing about guy’s chat is that you can be more liberated than you can in real world encounters. If it doesn’t work out - no worries. You’re under no obligation to speak to him again. If you see something you like, go for it - you have nothing to lose.

  2. Spell it out: Stick to straightforward, widely-understood words and phrases. Sounds picky, but the fact is people communicate differently in different states, never mind different countries. Your in-jokes with friends may come across as confusing at best, weird and off-putting at worst.

  3. Keep it short and sweet: We’ve all seen those pages long messages with no periods or commas detailing the sender’s life story. Avoid at all costs. Try to limit your messages to a couple of sentences max and stick to 1 main point. Your significant other will thank you.

  4. Give him chance to reply: We all get excited when we meet someone new - give them a little space to breathe and get their thoughts in order. There’s nothing that dampens interest more than a barrage of messages bombarding someone’s inbox - they’ll answer if they’re interested.

  5. Make him wait: Equally, a little chase is good for maintaining interest. There’s no need to reply to messages immediately, especially as you don’t want your significant other to think you’ve nothing better to do than hover over your keyboard/cellphone and wait for him to get in touch.

  6. Take your time - be creative: That time you spent keeping him waiting before you reply? Put it to good use. Don’t be afraid to spend a little more time crafting funny, original responses to his messages - he’ll be sure to appreciate the effort.

  7. Hold something back: I get it - meeting someone new is fun. However, keep from sharing every one of your inner thoughts up front. Aside from potentially exhausting future conversation topics, be smart and take care to avoid disclosing personal details. You can also find out How to Protect Your Privacy on the Forums here.
