There are a few of you whom I'd have the pleasure of chatting with via phone or over the net (mic). I'll admit that it is something that still makes me rather nervous, but once I start I become comfortable - especially for those of you who I been communicating with for a while. I personally like it. I like putting a voice with a face and a name. It makes things really personable. Granted, I do not go around giving out my number to everyone or opening conversation for chat with any random person, but those who I've chatted with I have thoroughly enjoyed our talks. There is a safety and vunerability issue I think we all must realize and adhere too. Your comfortability with the decision is keen and is dire to your own safety and protection.... With that said, have you ever participated in phone chats with any members here? Did you like it? Would you do it again? bb Oh, and ladies -- would love to hear from you all sometime! I recently was in contact with another member here (female) and loved our conversation. She and I do have a lot more in common than I would have thought... and she has a LOVELY voice. I hear a sings-beration coming on!
