It will explain and give voice prompts on how to access the different features or rooms of the chat line using your keypad (you can also refer to our 'How It Works' page for a picture of our Navigation Chart). You then tell the system where to go by pressing a number on your dial pad. Later, when you are familiar with how the line works, you can skip this introduction and get right to the action.

  • Q. How do I get started?
         A. Just call the chat line number and start having fun! If you are a little shy you may want to listen in on one of the group chat rooms to find a room that is right for you. If you are ready for excitement, try our most popular feature, Live Personals. Record a personal greeting, listen to others' greetings, and get ready to talk to someone live and 1-on-1! You can re-record your greeting as many times as you like. Once you save it, it plays to the other callers, to let them know you're on the line. Next, listen to greetings from other callers … you can spend as long as you want. Hear someone you like? Send them a message! If someone's interested in you, they'll message you too. You can respond to anyone (or everyone!) you want—it's always up to you. Find someone really special? You can invite them to join you for some 1-on-1 fun! Your private chats are just that—private!

  • Q. What should I say in my greeting?
         A. Your greeting introduces you to other callers, so don't be shy! This is your chance to share what's special about you. Relax and take your time, because the best greetings get the most responses! Your greeting can be up to 2 minutes long. Here are some tips for recording a personal greeting:
    1. Keep your tone positive! Do you sound approachable? Sexy? Strong? Remember, people are attracted to confidence so speak clearly and remember to smile.
    2. Show off the real you by sharing your best features, interests, and passions. Think about what will make you stand out to other callers, and let them know!
    3. Most importantly, tell them what you're looking for! Whether it's friendship, a relationship, or something more erotic, asking for what you want is the best way to get it.

  • Q. What do I do if I receive a message from a caller that I'm not interested in?
         A. Hear from someone who's not your type? Just skip the message. You can even block them with the touch of a key. Callers that you block can't hear your greeting, and you won't have to listen to theirs either.

  • Q. What if I receive a message that I find really interesting?
         A. When you receive a message from someone who interests you, you can instantly exchange private messages with them, just like sending a voicemail that they'll hear right away. When you're ready, send a connection request to connect with them live in a private conversation.

  • Q. Where is the login; I used to be able to login and manage my profile and browse other people’s profiles?
         A. Our new Talkee.com web site no longer supports this feature. Over time, this feature became too expensive to maintain. Since we wanted to keep Talkee FREE for everyone we decided to switch the photo and profile functionality to Facebook. Many callers told us they were already using Facebook to post their profiles and pictures and asked if we could create some Facebook pages for our chat lines. We did. You can ‘Friend’ Talkee on Facebook to add your photo, and you can show support for your favorite chat line by ‘Liking’ one of our many Facebook chat line pages. It’s a great way to SEE who’s calling the lines, get your photo out there, and let people know where you hang out.

  • Q. How do I contact Talkee?
         A. If you have any questions or comments, please send us an email using our 'Contact Us' form and we will try to respond to you as quickly as possible.
