and you have it figured out, the guys dont much like to wait on stuff lol
Wham bam thank you mam.
chat is faster, instant gratification
Hmm how to put this....
It makes a guy feel closer to ya ;-) . The messages don't feel as "live" once they are sent. Messages work just as well as chat to me too; I'm with ya there, but apparently not to some men here. Responses in chat are instant and he can imagine your voice more readily and who knows what else. Okay, I'll stop there.
Actually I used to think the Meebo was better than the message function. But now I am not so sure. When I am chatting my spelling sinks to the level of a first grader, because I am trying to type so fast. While the message function let's me take my time and organize my thoughts better. And improves my spelling.
But the chat function is fun because it feels more like real time, so If whoever I am chatting with understands that my spelling is going to be bad, then chatting is more fun. It depends on the purpose and the friend that you are communicating with.
Hey that being said, Would you like to chat with me? lol just kidding. Well since I'm a man I can give you a lot better insight than these women who think they know men. No just kidding again ladies. Seriously , I don't feel any closer to anybody using the chat or the message function. It doesn't matter to me which one is used.
I think you are right......... messages seem to have to be thought out first.... but chatting lets you say what comes right out of you mind
my chat does not work so i will never have this issue
I don't want to be "THAT CLOSE" to anyone other than those I am already close to at this point but I don't use chat because it hoses up my phone. Men ask me all the time why i am not on there. I have started telling them because my boyfriend forbids it. They usually leave me alone after that. :)
The only real difference I see is that you have to keep refreshing to see when you get a message in your inbox, but the chat messages just pop up when they come in.
I agree with you and I prefer the message function.
How do you turn it off?
