I found this happened today to me. I was quite surprised as I thought this was a site that welcomed newcomers and as a tool for people who are lonely and looking for friendship. Call me naive. I guess you find out quickly who to avoid

I don't use chat rooms. I did years ago but now I find it difficult to keep up. That doesn't mean I don't talk to people, I just talk via the forums and private messages instead.

That's the great thing about this site. There are different ways for people to talk to one another and as such nobody needs to feel left out.

Chat rooms are difficult to get to know people through. Too many conversations going on at one time. Having said that it's difficult knowing who to try to connect with until you've 'met them even briefly in chat

Tried the chat rooms for awhile related well to some people I could hold my own,but found it a bit to much like being back at school,power plays,watch what you say to certain people,people siding with each other some days it was like walking on eggshells stopped being fun so I never went back there were some nice people on there but it started getting stressful instead of fun.

Oh, thank you all! I thought I was the only one who was overwhelmed by chat rooms. I do not have the speed or the computer savvy to keep up. I'll keep trying because I like the interaction & many of the folks who seem to use chat rooms. But so far, for me forums seem to work best.

I agree, it can be overwhelming, just give it another try.

I found that after the death of my husband, that I missed the conversations with a glass of wine each night. I have a glass of wine and log into the chat rooms, if I want to talk then I do. If I don't then I just sit and watch the conversation.
The people are lovely there and make you so welcome.

Hope you try again

I tried the chat rooms a few times, but found it too fast-paced for me. I do much better interacting via comments on the forums or by personal message. Chat rooms simply aren’t for everyone.
