5 Personalities You’ll Meet on Random Chat Websites

Ads by Google

random chatMany people get on sites such as Omegle and ChatRoulette to meet exciting new people and have interesting conversations. However, a lot of the time, they will encounter several other different types of chat personas along the way. That said, it would seem as if not everybody is on these random chat sites just for a friendly chat…

However, I’ve narrowed down about five of these personas for you to take a look at (and I’ve even given them all a spiffy little name). All I ask is that you look through them and let me know if you’ve run into them before! Granted, these descriptions might be a little tame compared to what all of these chat-based characters can do, but I’m sure you’ll be able to relate to them regardless.

The Lover

It seems so often that there are people out on the Internet who use these random chat sites as a means to look for love. (Granted, that love may be for only temporary purposes, but we’ll not get into the details of that.) However, the chat is always typical. The Lover will always ask for your age, sex, and location, and then he (rarely ever she) will proceed to seduce you with statements formed with poor grammar and horrible spelling.

The Non-English Speaker

I’m not bashing people who are not native English speakers, but it always seems that chatroom-hoppers will cross at least one language barrier during their conversational adventures. It can often lead to quite a bit of confusion, but occasionally, it can be pretty cool. With web apps like Google Translate (or other similar tools), you can get a rough idea of what the person is saying, and better yet, you can learn parts of another language.

The Advertisement

The Advertisement is akin to the Lover. Often, what starts out with a “romantically” infused opening line will turn into a blatant advertisement for some of the less flattering sites on the Internet. Otherwise known as bots, these little advertisements can be quite the hassle. What makes it worse is that, for at least a little while, these bots can sometimes seem like actual people.

The Insane One

Occasionally, you’ll mention someone absolutely crazy on these random chat websites. They often take on certain characters, and they will insist on acting like these personas for the entire duration of the conversation. These are the types of people who act like Dog from the Dog meme (yes, it happens). They will also pretend to be your dear sweet grandmother wondering how to use “the Google machine”. The Insane Ones are actually wonderful people, and without them, we wouldn’t have near as much spice on the Internet.

The Casual Conversationalist

Ah, but every once in a while, we will meet someone who uses these chat websites for the original intended purposes. These are the Casual Conversationalists, and they simply desire to have genuine human-to-human conversation. They are curious people who are always willing to learn. Granted, they often fall victim to the other four chat personas we have here. Unfortunately, it would seem we’re running out of these types.

Conclusion

These are just five of the types of people you will meet while randomly chatting online. However, everyone’s unique, and I’m aware that there are many other kinds of characters out there.

What other stereotypes use these random chat websites? Have you ever run into these characters while chatting online?
