Online dating sites have been making headlines and appearing in television commercials for years. The idea that someone can type in their age, interests, and religion, and be matched with someone they will fall in love with is an enchanting and sometimes true fairy tale. However, one powerful part of one’s personality is always left out of those profiles: The voice. Other than body language, is there anything that can convey sincerity, love, or attraction more than the human voice? Nothing says “I adore you,” like a voice; the voice carries the most important messages such as “I love you”.
Phone personals have taken a backseat to online personals, thanks to the fixation everyone has with creating online matchmaking profiles. Voice personals are making a revival, though, and many people hope they’ll return more to the forefront as people rediscover the kind of impression a simple voice message can have on a listener.
Hearing the tone of a person’s voice during a conversation is essential. Many people mistakenly “speak” to a potential mate through an instant messaging service or email and believe that they’ve talked to the person. This is not quite the whole truth. Written conversation is much different than spoken conversation. It reveals less about personality and more about writing skills. Phone dating lines and local phone personals are trying to go beyond emailing and instant messaging to give people a chance to meet in a whole new way.
Phone chat gives people a chance to see more of the true character and personality of the person they’ll be meeting. It allows them to hear sweetness, sincerity, and sexiness instead of just reading it. Imagine if a person is terribly sexy but is limited to only goofy lines about sensual matters. A potential partner that is charming and sexy might be completely overlooked because they weren’t able to write romance novels in e-mail. The voice says what the written word cannot.
If you’re still not convinced about how powerful a voice can be in a relationship, just think of all the things a voice does to communicate our emotions: It screams, laughs, and cries. It expresses so many of the things that can’t be expressed through non-verbal body language or a sentence in email. It is impossible to read the true depth of someone’s pain, or the true passion that they might feel, whether it’s sexual or otherwise. If you take away someone’s voice in a dating scenario, you’re left with almost nothing. Even sexual relationships are enhanced by the basic sounds of the voice and the flirtatious sounds that the voice expresses.
Phone dating is a great way to get to know one another. For people who are shy or not great at getting to know someone face-to-face, they can use personals by phone to break the ice. Phone chat lines are a great way to learn the art of communication and gain confidence in your ability to speak with potential romantic partners. Of course there is not any face to face contact, but it’s always good to take things one step at a time.
When people marry or engage in intimate relationships, they don’t write to each other through e-mail. They talk. Voice chat lines give people a wonderful way to take the first step to a serious or casual relationship. Now daters, I challenge you, without hesitation, to get out there, introduce yourself, get flirty, remember to have fun and enjoy yourself!
