Online dating has come a long way thanks to the evolution of technology, with websites, dating apps, instant messengers and more, but websites offering free chat line numbers for dating people through old fashion phone chat still exist as an active market. Though not necessarily at the forefront of technology, the traditional phone dating chat line niche, if you want to call it traditional, has been around for at least the past two decades. It still exists today although dwarfed by popular platforms on mobile phones. And though largely declined since its heyday decades ago, the phone call chat line service is thriving in its own right and is even subdivided into a variety of categories such as by ethnicity and sexual orientation.
Phone dating has been around since the time that adult phone chat lines have been around, and sometimes the two were synonymous with each other. Largely still intact today, phone dating chat lines are still done through calling over the phone and connecting to other local singles, or through explicit adult phone chat lines, the difference is websites primarily list the phone numbers so people can search online whether it is for legitimate dating or purely entertainment purposes. Some websites are an aggregator of phone numbers spanning different sub niches in this industry.
So the niche still exists and though smaller than in decades past, it’s survival is ironically still thanks to the internet. People are searching for phone dating numbers online, and many free chat line numbers are available as a trial basis giving callers a 60-minute trial for instance. Many websites exist and new ones are still being created to promote this niche so the market is still there. It’s also ironic that even though online dating is popular, it’s bombarded with spam, fake profiles, and automated software (called bots) that exchanges basic question/answers, then directs visitors to a promotional link for example, and all this turns people off. And so frustrated people have the phone dating line that is an avenue people can turn to, and this is helping to sustain an industry from decades past, and who knows, maybe it could make a resurgent revival with a creative spin. With a phone call, people connect to other people and have a good ole fashion conversation so there’s no guessing if the other person is real or not, although depending on time of day or week, the phone call traffic may fluctuate a lot. So with the pros and cons of online dating, phone dating by calling is still going strong and with a larger population turned off by technology and its complexities, it may survive the next few decades as technology continues to change. Technology itself may serve as a medium, and the medium may change but the traditional conversation will exist as long as humans can talk by phone!
