First dates aren’t the most comfortable of situations. You want your date to like you, but you have to feel out his personality before you can truly be yourself in fear of completely turning him off. With a sexy pair of panties it’s easy to put all your inhibitions at bay. Here’s why you should wear your sexiest pair of panties on a first date. Read More
Thanks to a ton of bad jokes and misconceptions, chat lines sometimes get a bad rap! But, do you really know what’s a myth and what’s fact? In this post, we’re debunking three of the most common chat line myths out there. Buckle up and get ready to change your opinion on chat lines once and for all!
Myth One: People on Chat Lines are Desperate
QuestChat callers come from all different backgrounds and are looking for all different types of connections – from wanting someone to chat with or meet up for a date to a relationship or even marriage! Our callers are busy people who know their time is valuable and don’t want to waste time at a bar or leave meeting someone to chance – they are sensible, take-charge people. Desperate is definitely not a word in their vocabularies.
Myth Two: Chat Lines are Filled with Paid Operators
We can’t speak for all the chat lines out there, but QuestChat has never, and never will, used paid operators. We’re all about connecting REAL local singles with other real, local singles. We think authenticity is hugely important and work hard to ensure our lines are filled with awesome, real callers.
I’m not afraid to admit it and be completely honest – my love life has had a lot of ups and downs. As a result, I have been using various chat lines, online dating sites and matchmaking services for the past 15 years. Some services are better than others, but one thing they all seem to have in common is that girls sometime flake. If you’re not sure what that means it is when you have plans and then someone gets cold feet out of nowhere and the date doesn’t happen.
I found online dating to be the worst for this. I was using Match, eHarmony, OK Cupid, etc. and I would trade messages back and forth with girls and we would have solid plans. But then something would always come up. We would usually reschedule, but it was still a huge pain in the butt to have to change up my plans.
Say that ten times fast, betcha can’t! lol well tongue twisters aside, being single can seem like a life twister too. For some unfathomable reason, people have a hard time seeing each other single.
Why it’s almost as if, well if one of us has the courage to make up our own mind about our own life and most especially our own relationship status, then it must mean that the paired up among us are what? Too easily influenced by others and DON”T have the courage to make their own decisions in life? hmm? Could that be the real reason we get hounded at every family gathering, Christmas party etc. asking about whether or not we’ve found someone to leave stinky, balled-up socks under our beds?
Just how much of our relationship status is dependent on peer/parental pressure? Not to mention good ol’ society as a whole.
Traditionally it has been the role of the human being to pair up and stay that way and raise little tax-payers. But this is the age of enlightenment and it’s time to live life that way you want it. Quantum physics teaches us that there are infinite possibilities when we aren’t looking and only one when we look right at it. Meaning if all you are shown is one route, that’ is the route you will take, when, just on the periphery of your vision, there are so many unexplored paths! Choosing your own does indeed take courage but don’t you deserve the right to live your life as you want? Within the confines of the law of course J (Editor making me say that!)
Being single is a glorious state of being for the self-confident but also for the self-exploring. Certainly you must love yourself and know yourself first before paring up with someone else. The journey to you is as fun and exciting as any journey can be. I love travelling alone. The choice of where to go, to whom I can speak, what to do, what to eat, all up to me and no one to please but myself. Imagine life that way! When someone poses that tired old question about being single, just tell them you are getting to know yourself first. You are not just going to settle for the first person who wants you just to please someone else.
These are some of my favourite things about living alone (when I lived alone!)
1 King sized bed all for me!
2 The only disgusting, stinky, balled-up socks under the bed are mine. unless they were left there by an overnight guest. In which case I just throw them out! Which brings me to the next point…
3 Hook-ups….nuff said about that one, it is a way to sometimes get free socks!
4 Mo Money, my money is all for me!
5 Farting….no one needs to know whether or not I actually do it…which I definitely DON’T!
6 Hobbies, OK, so I like to make Adventure Time characters out of plasticene! I don’t need anyone judging me on that!
7 Friends! This is a big one. I love my friends and maybe they are weird but I love weird! I hate having to justify my friend’s behavior to my sig-other. I also hate asking if they can come over.
8 Ice cream and chips…yes I eat them sometimes, sometimes I just might dip one into the other…just saying….my ice cream, my chips, my money, my place!
9 I love yous
Sometimes I don’t want to say it right after you do. I’m not a parrot. I will say it when I feel it or maybe never. I certainly say it to my dog a lot!
And that brings me to my favourite reason to stay single-
10 MY DOG! Or whatever pets you have. I can have him on the bed, in the car, in the darned shower if he wants to go in there and no one can tell me not to!
Well Kiddies, that’s my take on singleness and just living your life the way you want in general. Always listen to your own mind and please yourself first….as long as you are never rude! I hate rude.
Who doesn’t love a good origin story, right? Batman and his parent’s night at the opera ruined by a crazy clown asking weird riddles whilst pointing a gun. The Bionic Woman’s parachute failing to open, Mr. Magoo, falling into a vat of acid….OK, THAT never happened but it would’ve explained his terrible eyesight! Right?
So last night I’m getting a glass of soda pop for my beloved when it occurred to me, cuz that’s the kind of random jumbly-joo that goes through my head non-stop, that all of the things that used to really have a solid reason for existence are just sort of fluffy meaningless filler these days.

Should you quit drinking?
We all love drinking to some degree. It seems it is an integral part of our lives in the culture we live in. It is firmly enmeshed in our lives in some way or another. Alcohol to celebrate, the “God I need a drink days” and the summer day cold beer is an absolute must. All of our movies, TV, books, stories we share with friends, stories our parents told us, we all have alcohol stories. But is it necessary in our lives and just how much damage does alcohol do? Is it worth it? Would we be able to have as much fun without it? With it? Let’s have a look at our lives and see; should we give up drinking? Read More
When is it love, infatuation or a crush?
‘The difference between like, love and in love, is the same difference between; for now, for a while and forever”
Ah the multi-faceted, many headed monster we call love. There are so many ways to feel and so few clues to help us understand that heady, light-headed, heart-pounding feeling we get when we are with that certain someone. Often we get feelings for people we really don’t know at all. For example; teachers, bosses, celebrities, people who we see in a certain way and often our feelings are our own projections as to who and what they are. Read More
Spring forward and Fall back. That’s how I always remember which is which. That joyful time in the fall when, if at the pub or the club, you get an extra hour before last call…and on the converse side that dammit moment when you realize you get one less hour of fun that night! Not to mention having to catch up on sleep somehow and being late for everything for a week or so and that weird feeling that it is either too light out or too dark out. Read More
With the 88th Oscars now behind us, I got thinking about why we love movies so much and why they are so great for date night. I am a big fan of the Academy Awards, always have been. It’s a great chance to see movie actors outside of a role, I love hearing what they say in their speeches, I cry with them, I laugh with them, I envy them and I even pity them, because living your life in the public eye is not easy. Of course most of us would gladly trade places with them, but if I had my picture taken every time I did something silly, dumb or embarrassing….well, let’s just say there’d be a lot of pictures.
I mean A LOT, like enough to wallpaper everyone’s house in my city. Read More
