The world is constantly evolving and to stay fogey means to be left behind. Hence, there is a need to keep renewing our minds.
It’s important to get cognisance with the tips that are normally held in any community you find yourself in, so as not to appear either as a doldrum, offender or to be plainly outdated.
Having understood this, we took out our time to highlights some of the Senior Chat Room Tips you need to revisit and learn all over again, just so you meet the required standard flawlessly.
You should know, that you have to be a Senior in order to be in the room, as this is one of the fundamental criteria for participants.
Since you’re one, you may commence by reading the available rules governing the rooms. This will prepare and guide you throughout your stay in there. You wouldn’t want to be abruptly cut off from the room, would you? After all, there isn’t a worse feeling than rejection or regret.
Don’t Throw Caution into the Wind
Next! You have to be security conscious. It’s detrimental to display your home address, e-mail address and phone number on these sites openly. Giving out your credit card number, phone number, bank account details and info about your important documents is putting yourself in harm’s way. Some vital information is meant to be known just by you and you alone, not even a second nor third party is secretive enough, all in the bid to guarantee your safety.
Therefore, you are required to religiously guard your personal information and no matter the level of trust you might have built with anyone in the room, it is advised that such information remains undivulged. You are not advised to detail yourself so much so, that you become an open book. Do not overlook this tip. Stay safe!
Politeness is Nonnegotiable
Another important etiquette to be observed in a Senior Chat Room is polite manners and decorum. Chatters are not allowed to break each other’s head with hateful words nor hate speeches. Everyone is there to converse and have a good time in order to keep the mind active and not hypertensive.
Hence, exchanging words is highly prohibited, likewise typing in caps is perceived as offensive, as it appears aggressive. In a case where other chatters share a different opinion, you either slant yours in an amicable and mature way or you simply overlook differing opinions.
Remember, you’re there to have a nice time, so don’t let anything get in the way of that. It’s a large community of different religion, race, ethnicity and gender, hence disparity should be expected.
The Senior Chat Room is for the seniors obviously, therefore, do not at any point present yourself as an ageist nor make any debilitated and trifling comment in the room against other seniors.
Keep Your Personality Under
Never violate the rule of having just a single account, neither should you usurp anyone. Chatters want to know that the other person at the end of the keypad is real, therefore, do not breed distrust as otherwise will inherently taint the image of the site. And, if by any means you become uncomfortable with your account you can adjust or delete the said account but never you create two separate accounts on the same site nor should you usurp anyone. That’s a red flag with its consequences.
Get Your Maturity Cap On!
Furthermore, in the most environment, sexual harassment is highly frowned at, by the same token it isn’t welcome in a Senior Chat Room either. Thus, do not share explicit pictures in the main room to the glare of everyone. Privacy and some attainable level of decency are expected from all and sundry. So, do well to maintain the rules. Do not harass anyone with your nude picture nor should you continue pestering any chatter with unwelcome sexual advances. Some people are there just to converse and nothing more. Do well to stick to the rule.
No one fancies the idea of being stalked, therefore, avoid stalking anyone. Once a chatter seems uninterested to chat with you, do not push further, simply withdraw or stay away, unless they respond back appropriately. Kindly take note of that.
Keep Every Other Rule
Exploitation is a no-go area. Do not try to pilfer from anyone. Do not ask for financial assistance. You are not meant to make a demand, a chatter can solely decide to be kind to you, but never should you make demands.
Likewise, the room isn’t an avenue to sell your products. The purpose of the site is to obviously converse and not barter any product, as it isn’t a marketplace.
Do not also post or share links to other sites.
Lastly and imperatively, endeavour to be fun, be open minded and be a lover of life. The room is to refresh your mind, share ideas, create an affinity with other seniors and possibly hang out. Thus, it’s unadvisable that you chat with an undertone of aggression or rigidity. Stay friendly and accommodating.
Inability to adhere by any of these tips is to be at risk of being banned either temporarily or permanently.
What’s this saying again? Life begins at 40. So, live it, don’t suck it!
