CHAT NOTES FOR NEWBIES Striking Up The Right Conversation The next step is how to talk to people.

Saying a nice greeting to everyone is the best way to catch someone's attention.

A lot of people out there have met their significant others through the computers and why shouldn't you?

There's just a few things to follow and to keep an eye on.

With IRC chats however just type in the addresses for the person to write down since IRC's are text only and you cannot go from an IRC chat room directly to the world wide web. And after talking with this person for some time you may become attracted to them and vice versa.

It just might be what we call in cyberspace, cyber-love.

These sure come in handy when you want to give someone a cyber-smooch or a wedgie from the dark depths of the ocean!

This can make your messages in bold, italics, or color.Considering that this relationship maybe over a long distance the chances of you meeting the other person are almost next to none.
