The challenge could be running across the right person at the right time since the chat room option tends to be quieter than one might expect on a site with so many users.
This site shouldn't be confused with the matchmaking site, Ok Cupid.
If you're chatting with someone you like and have to go but hope to continue the conversation at another time, you can become friends on the site.
This requires you to have an account which is quick and easy to set up.
Some sites allow you to chat for free with the option to upgrade for access to other features while others are completely free.
The more involved the registration process the slower the chat rooms seem to be, though speed could vary by location, day of the week, and time of day.
Expect a lot of email from the site unless you change your settings or unsubscribe from the mailing list.
Though some of the chat rooms are labeled teen-friendly, these rooms seem to be best for ages 18 and up because some users may post erotic comments, and the rooms are only loosely moderated.
