CHAT NOTES FOR NEWBIES Striking Up The Right Conversation The next step is how to talk to people.
Saying a nice greeting to everyone is the best way to catch someone's attention.
All I can say is, cheating through a computer is ridiculous, but unfortunately it happens.
And like I mentioned of other stuff happening, they can also be messing around with someone not on-line and totally stabbing you in the back.
With IRC chats however just type in the addresses for the person to write down since IRC's are text only and you cannot go from an IRC chat room directly to the world wide web. And after talking with this person for some time you may become attracted to them and vice versa.
It just might be what we call in cyberspace, cyber-love.
Try not to yell, this is where you either type in all capitals or use text editing to increase the font size and bold type of your message.
If you happen to get into a relationship on-line through a chat always be friendly toward the other person, unless they happen to do something that makes you upset, use whatever means necessary to break off the relationship.
Considering that this relationship maybe over a long distance the chances of you meeting the other person are almost next to none.
But don't let this stop you from keeping in contact of each other.
You can use as many asterixes as you want when typing these out. From hugging an on-line friend to giving someone a cyber-beer to drink.
Also you can use the abbreviations previously mentioned also.
