If you think about all your close friends today, they were all strangers at one point in life. Therefore, if you want to make more friends, you have to be willing to talk to strangers, who will then hopefully turn into good friends. In this article, we will try to provide you with simple ways to talk with a stranger, and how Splansh can help you do that.
Find something you have in common.
The stranger may be receiving dozens of messages. Don't just send a "hello," or a "hey," Instead, start the discussion with something interesting. Look at their hobbies and see if there is something that's worth breaking the ice over.
Splansh saves you this effort, and shows you common and different interests between you and the potential friend once you start chatting with them.
Ask a question
People talk if you give them the chance to. They talk when you listen. This expedition calls for asking a stranger a disarmingly intimate question and then simply listening to what they say.
Still talk about yourself
Everyone likes to talk about themselves, but they also like to learn about others. if you share some of your interests which are not in common, that might trigger something they never thought to share.
Splansh helps you build a simple but interesting profile. You can write a short bio, define your interests, and upload some selfies or photos that represents you.
Don't be a catfish
A catfish is someone who creates a false online identity, manipulating others online with a fake persona. When talking to someone online, don't feel like you have to take on some other persona. Be yourself by talking about what you like and what you dislike. Talk about what's been bothering you, what your dreams are, or anything else that crosses your mind.
It's a sad truth that there are bad people out there. Bad people who might want to harm you physically or mentally. No matter how much comfortable you get, never reveal your identity, your personal address, or any other personal information about yourself.
From our side, we have taken some actions to keep Stranger Messenger free of perverts and predators. We added a bad word blocker all over the app in order to prevent users from sending curse or swear words. Furthermore, when a user sends you a private message, their first message converted to a chat request, which you can accept or reject. We also added a "Block" button in conversation settings, and "Report" button in post options. If a user reported for posting a sexual or offensive material, they will be permanently banned. To make it more effective, we ban the user using their phone ID, which make it impossible to create another account using the same device.
