How to Break the Ice at a Bingo Chat Room

Online bingo is popular with many people for many reasons. One of those reasons is that is extremely simple to play since you don’t have to worry about finding and marking off numbers on your cards all night as numbers get called out. This leaves a lot of down time for you to do other things. That point leads directly to another reason why so many people like playing online bingo: the chat room.

The flow of online bingo allows you to enjoy a nice chat with old friends while still having the potential to win money. But what if you don’t have any old friends online playing with you? Well, then you should make new ones. The problem is that many people have trouble breaking the ice and opening up to complete strangers. With that in mind, here are some ways that even the shyest person can break the ice in a bingo chat room, and make some new connections.

Say Hello

Okay, this one isn’t rocket science. Just saying hello to someone will often spark a conversation. Keep in mind, just because you might be shy or an introvert doesn’t mean everyone is. Someone may be waiting for someone else to just make the first move and get the ball rolling. Besides, what do you really have to worry about? No one can see you.

Common Interests

Okay, you said hello and someone said hello back, now what? Well, if you didn’t run into a chatty Cathy, the chances are they might not have a lot to say. In fact, they may have even struggled with getting up enough courage to even reply. If that is the case, the onus will be on you to probe for some common interest. Often time, this could be weather, sports teams, religion, or even family. Keep in mind though; you both are on a bingo site, so the likelihood that they have a remote interest in bingo, or even just gambling is pretty high. So try engaging them in conversation about what just happened, or maybe embellish about the string of bad luck you have been on. Throw in some amusing anecdotes about what has happened since you started playing. They may even start reciprocating.

Ask Questions

News flash…people like talking about themselves. With that in mind, ask questions. Don’t get too personal, because let’s face it, you still are online and who really knows who you are talking to. The point is to break the ice and get the conversation going, and there really isn’t a better way to do that than to ask a few questions. Get it started, and see where it goes.

Ask For Help

Believe it or not, people also like to be helpful. At the very least, they like to feel like an expert. So if you want to get people to start talking, ask a few questions that require help. You will be amazed who may open up.
