I am not. I hardly chat. If I do it would be to communicate with my school/college mates, excollegues/friends who are known to me well in reality. I am not aggressive on meeting/finding people through chat. Maybe it is because I have this preconceived notion that majority of the people in chatrooms are 'fakes'. What about you?

Hi lovelydame, Early I was not chat addict but now a days I like to chat.As chat is the most economical way of communication but slower one but still you can talk with other so I like chatting. This change in behavuor happend because of certain reasons.Basically change in habbits generally happend when somebody in your life comes and then that time your habbits may change. Simimlar is the case with me, after getting girlfriend which is my lovely wife, I become started chatting with her and then I interest increased so then I start chatting with other also.. thanks for discussion of this topic. have a nice day.

I agree with your views. I am least interested in chatting and do not attempt to chat with unknown entities. For me, spending time here at mylot is more enjoyable than doing anything like chatting.

Not really. I used to chat with my friends and other colleagues that I have known since before. I also chat with the other chatters in the chatroom but not so often. I always logged on to my YM account to communicate with my co-officemates. Have a nice day!

I was a chat addict before. I started it when I first got a job outside our country. I was chatting to forget the loneliness and being homesick and to kill the time. Now, I just chat to communicate with my family and friends. I think chatting in website is just a waste of time you can hardly find true and real people there, well that's my opinion.

Not now but yes earlier i used to be chat addict. you will be surprised to know at in the year 1998 when there was very less internet cafe and only very few of them exist and that too they charge 3 dollar per hour at that time i was addict. to get system i was required to wait for 2 hours. But i have not get anything from chat except loss of money. It is real hard to find good honest friends in real life and finding on internet is real difficult. People change their identity and chat, i don't understand what is logic in it. I don't know what you people think of it, but yes people do change their identity on internet.

It's for that reason that I never really got into chat rooms. There was a time I was looking all over the internet for a freind of mine and finally caught up with him in a chat room and couldn't believe the lies he was telling. I guess it's true that we can be anyone we want to be on the internet so I really don't trust anyone and stay away from chat rooms.

Hi Lovelydame. I am totally opposite from you. I am a chat addict. To be more precise, I am talkative. Well, personally I am not quite agree that people in chat rooms are always fake. Haha. I mean I admit when I am chatting with others in the forum I didn't speak everything out but I never fake things. haha. Anyway, that's just my point of view.

I am not a chat addict.After joining mylot,i stopped chatting.I think by chatting we are gaining anything and we loose our precious time.By spending some time on mylot ,we can enjoy and at the same time,we can earn some extra money.

I am not interested in chatting via the net because it wastes the time. Usually I will just chat with people who I know and meanwhile I do something else.

No I am not a chat addict at chatroom website. But previously I have asked one of them who was very active in friendswin at business chatroom for this question, "actually why we are here?". He replied seems like spontaneous answer from him; "we do for what we shouldn't do". I had my big laugh because he always jokes with all members around. Like in mylot, I found two good young male jokers and I like to read their entire discussions; they are "xboxboy" and "joshboz". Both of them in my friends list, and I like them both.
